MASON CITY, IA-One north Iowa woman is upset after hearing a bill she’s lobbied for, may not make it through this year’s state legislative session.

Kim Koenigs has rallied for a bill that would require background checks for all school employees in Iowa.

She says it’s a requirement most other states already have.

In the past couple months the bill has made it through sub committees and passed the senate, but has stalled in the house.

“When are our children going to be important enough to put all the politics aside and do what should be done. Period,” said Koenigs.

The end of this year’s legislative session is a week from Friday.
