A special legislative session avoided

Governor Reynolds says there will be no special Legislative session needed to reconcile the state's budget woes for fiscal year 2017.  She says the expected shortfall for iowa's budget is $14.6 million.  The governor will combine $13 million from the state's economic emergency fund with the $1.6 million ending balance, to cover the shortfall.  Reynolds says it's been a difficult budget year, but she's happy lower-than-expected revenues were managed without cuts to education or Medicaid.
