DES MOINES, Iowa (KCAU) – It’s been almost one year since Iowa’s severe spring flooding and folks impacted by high water are one step closer to relief funding.
The Iowa Senate unanimously approved $20 million for flood recovery.
However, some Democrats argued that the amount needed exceeds $150 million.
Lawmakers said the bill would bring the two-year total of state funding for flood recovery up to $35 million, not including federal money from Iowa’s Economic Emergency Fund.
The bill still needs House approval.
