Iowa State House - Square Crop

The Iowa Capitol Building contains both the State House of Representatives and State Senate. This is the House of Representatives.

 

It's been restored to its original glory as part of a larger restoration project. One interesting fact, there is no wall paper in the entire capitol building. Everything is stenciled on by a group of talented (full-time) restoration painters.

 

The Iowa House of Representatives is the lower house of the Iowa General Assembly. There are 100 members of the House of Representatives, representing 100 single-member districts across the state with populations of approximately 29,750 for each constituency. The entire chamber serves two-year terms and then goes up for re-election as an entire group every even-numbered year.

 

There are no term limits. Each congressmen will earn $25,000 in salary plus per diems.
