The local representative says one item that probably will not be resolved is the debate on the Iowa's Health care plan.  The House of Representatives want to adopt Governor Branstad's proposal while Senate Democrats want to see an expansion of Medicaid. Soderberg believes the legislators will come back in a special session to handle the controversial issue.
