DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Iowa lawmakers are sending a voluntary water quality bill to Gov. Kim Reynolds that doesn't require comprehensive monitoring of water pollution. The Republican-controlled House voted 59-41 Tuesday for the legislation, which already passed in the GOP-majority Senate. Iowa has faced water pollution issues for years, and research shows it's tied in part to farm runoff. It's estimated that effectively addressing the issue will cost billions of dollars. The bill generates $282 million over 12 years.

The Hawk Eye reports that a resolution to establish the crinoid as the state fossil was introduced in the Senate last week. The resolution says the crinoid has contributed to Iowa's history and economic benefit.
