DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Lawmakers in the split Iowa Legislature haven’t reached agreement on several issues needed for adjournment this session, and it means they’ll be back next week.

The Republican-majority House and Democratic-controlled Senate have made advancements on several bills that will make up the nearly $7.35 billion budget for the fiscal year that begins in July. But many bills remain unfinished as each side adds funding and projects to the pieces of legislation.

At least some bills are expected to be sorted out in special legislative committees that only form when there’s no consensus. Legislative leaders say they’ll return Monday and Tuesday for more negotiations.
