Marsy’s Law for Iowa Statement on Session Adjournment
DES MOINES, Iowa (May 5, 2018) —Marsy’s Law for Iowa state director, Eric Baker, issued the following statement:
“While we appreciate the discussion and engagement from legislators on Marsy’s Law for Iowa, we’re disappointed this measure was not taken up on the floor for a vote this session. Crime victims in Iowa deserve equal constitutional rights and our grassroots supporters, survivor advocates and Marsy’s Law coalition will not wavier in our commitment to them.
“We stand with the 85 percent of Iowans who support Marsy’s Law and will spend the interim meeting with them, building our coalition and continuing to be a voice for victims in Iowa. We look forward to working with legislators to pass this bill next year.”
