Republican Governor Kim Reynolds may soon face a lawsuit over a provision she signed into law. It would restrict publicly-funded health insurance from covering surgeries for transgender Iowans. If she approves a bill that restricts the attorney general’s authority, a lawsuit will likely follow that, too.
Several new laws in recent years have faced court challenges, and some have been struck down.
Asked why this seems to be happening a lot, Reynolds says it’s part of the process.
