Many economists say the recession is coming to an end, but a state lawmaker from Southeast Iowa expects more cuts during the next legislative session. Senator Becky Schmitz says what makes it more troublesome is the fact that there likely won’t be as much federal help. Schmitz announced this week that’s she’ll be seeking another term next year. The Fairfield Democrat was first elected to the Iowa Senate in 2006.
