Legislators adjourned the 2002 regular session last night. Just how will the work of the 2002 legislature affect your life? If you’re a teenager who wants a job washing cars this summer, lawmakers tried to help you out, but Governor Vilsack vetoed a bill that would have erased the state labor commissioner’s ban on having teens handle car wash chemicals at car dealerships and in fancy drive-through car washes. If you raise livestock and want to expand your operation, you’ll have to abide by new rules that take effect in 11 months. If you’re a teacher, sorry, but there’s lots of uncertainty about school spending. If you want to legally drive above 65 on the Interstate, tough luck. Legislators didn’t hike the speed limit. And, if you like to go to a bar and watch the amateur sport called “extreme fighting”, breathe a sign of relief. The legislature never did take up a bill that would have outlawed “extreme fighting” in Iowa.
