One critical way we advance civil liberties in Iowa is through our work with the Iowa Legislature. We spend a significant amount of time each year engaged in the legislative process to support bills that strengthen our constitutional rights and defeat bills that threaten them.

When the Iowa Legislature is in session January through April or May, our team is at the statehouse, attending and speaking at subcommittee and committee meetings and working directly with legislators and government officials.

Go to the Iowa Legislature's web page for a listing of how the ACLU of Iowa has declared its positions on a single bill or all bills. (Type “ACLU” in the “Client Name” box.)

Iowa Legislative Voting Records

The ACLU of Iowa compiles the voting records of Iowa legislators on key civil liberties issues for each Iowa Legislative General Assembly, which lasts two years. Click here to see them.
