Last week representatives from each county in the state of Iowa flocked to Des Moines for County Day at the Capital. Locally, Marion County Emergency Management Coordinator Jeff Anderson and Treasurer Denise Emal made the trip to lobby for legislation important to their departments. Anderson tells KNIA/KRLS news there are two bills in the legislature right now that directly affect emergency management and it’s their goal to cleans up some verbage in the Iowa code in order to provide a more consistent and refined level of emergency management in the state. He encourages all residents to contact our local lawmakers to express their concerns about these or any bills in the legislature.
