Lawmakers Eying End of Session

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Iowa lawmakers are expected back in the state Capitol on Wednesday and legislative leaders say they are close to concluding the 2013 session.
   There was no floor action in the state House or State Senate on Monday or Tuesday. But legislative leaders say they have been working privately to resolve differences on key issues, like education policy, property tax cuts and low-income health care. Votes could come on those issues soon.
   Republican House Speaker Kraig Paulsen, of Hiawatha, says Tuesday it was possible lawmakers could finish their work on Wednesday.
   Lawmakers must also finish their work on several key budget bills, including the Health and Human Services budget, which provides funding to state health departments.
