Authored by Senator Brad Zaun (R-20), SSB 3155 is the companion bill to House Joint Resolution 13, now known as HJR 2009. They will need to pass this year and next before a constitutional amendment is put on the ballot for Iowa voters to decide in 2020. Currently, Iowa is one of six states that do not have a right to keep and bear arms amendment in its state Constitution, including California, Maryland, Minnesota, New Jersey, and New York.
