Southwest Iowa lawmaker returns to the Capitol

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A southwest Iowa lawmaker has returned to his job in the Iowa Capitol, where he hadn't voted on a measure since March 4.

Sen. Hubert Houser on Wednesday wrote a $576 check to repay expense money he was paid while absent.

Houser received handshakes and encouragement from Democrats and Republicans as he headed to his desk in the Senate chamber.

He told the Register earlier that he was too busy with work on his farm to join in legislative business, adding that as a Republican in the Democratic-controlled Senate, he had little to do. He's served 22 years in the Legislature.
