Why did the Dems in the IA legislature go to an undisclosed location?

I'm having a hard time finding any more information about this story.

2. Thank you. Why would the GOP introduce the legislation without any warning?

Is it that important for them to pass quickly?

3. afraid I cannot answer that - perhaps they were just trying to ram this through quickly

not giving anyone a chance to study it and determine its implications

5. Oh Snap!

Gun bills that have nothing to do with jobs, or education, or mental health services, or public safety (just the opposite, in fact). But maybe once we’re done spending time on these bills that are going nowhere in the Senate, we can create some jobs.
