Thursday, March 21, 2019 N/Warren Town and County News Page Eleven Senate News By State Senator Julian B. Garrett j ulian.garrett@legis.iowa.gov Bills Pass the Senate We have now begun debating bills in earnest. This past week we passed 30 bills. One bill was Senate File 274 that provides protection for belief based student organizations on college campuses. Most Democrats voted against the bill. We hear many stories about how universities here in Iowa and around the nation try to suppress the freedom of speech of conservative students. This is so unfortunate.

S. citizens can name even one branch of the federal government. The bill passed 43-3. Both the Senate and House passed resolutions starting again the process for placing your right to keep and bear arms into the Iowa constitution. It will be presented to the voters for ratification:in the general election of 2022 if it is passed by tile :next session of the legislature that begins in 2021. We passed Senate File 484, making it a fraudulent practice for someone to possess three EBT cards where they are not the authorized user. Law enforcement will be required to report those who possess them and the name on the cards to the: Classified Bring advertising is 25 cents a word with a $3.50 minimum and MUST be paid in advance of publication.
