Yesterday, the Iowa General Assembly adjourned sine die from the 2023 session of the 2023-2024 General Assembly. This year, the House passed the Safer Families Act, to ensure that law-abiding citizens may store firearms in their personal vehicles while at work and drive onto school grounds to pick-up or drop-off their students without first having to unload and store away their firearms in their vehicles. The House also amended Senate File 507 to include language ensuring that Iowa taxpayer dollars do not go to businesses that boycott the firearm industry, among other industries, and sent it back to the Senate. Unfortunately, the Senate failed to pass either of these bills.
