DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A bill that would legalize more fireworks sales in Iowa has won approval in the Republican-controlled state House, but its future is less clear in the Democratic-controlled Senate.
(Updated 10:45 a.m.) Iowa Governor Terry Branstad: "I wish to extend my deepest condolences to the family and friends of Officer Kerrie Orozco. As a former military policeman, I am keenly aware of the dangers law enforcement face every single day on the job. Officer Orozco served with integrity and was a model peace officer. My thoughts and prayers are with her newborn daughter and her entire family.”
