Leaders in the Senate are co-Majority leaders Stew Iverson, R-Dows, and Mike Gronstal, D-Council Bluffs. Each person takes alternative weeks leading the chamber, while no legislation goes to the floor without the approval of both. In the House, the Speaker is Christopher Rants, R-Sioux City, and the Majority Leader is Chuck Gipp, R-Decorah. Rep. Patrick Murphy, D-Dubuque, is the Minority Leader.


The divided Senate means that no bill moves forward without the approval of both parties. All committees have co-Chairmen, one from each party. Subcommittees are evenly divided.

The Iowa General Assembly also appropriated $2 million for support of public transit in Iowa for the 1977 fiscal year (beginning July 1, 1976.) Annual appropriations continued in subsequent years, though the amount of funding gradually declined as a result of a series of "across-the-board" budget cuts.
In 1986 the Iowa General Assembly discontinued the annual General Fund appropriations to public transit, and instead appropriated funds from the petroleum overcharge court settlements from Exxon to supplement the use tax funding for transit in FY1987.
