Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad has about 40 bills awaiting a decision, a hefty stack of policy and spending measures lawmakers sent him in a flurry as the Legislature adjourned earlier this month.

He has about two more weeks to decide whether to sign bills, which include measures regulating the use of unmanned aerial drones, allowing some people with epilepsy to take a marijuana oil derivative and ending dog racing at Council Bluffs but letting it continue in Dubuque.

About 10 of the bills Branstad must consider are spending measures that make up large portions of the state's $6.97 billion budget. The governor has 30 days from adjournment to consider bills sent to him at the end of the session.
