Boxes were stacked in the corner of the Iowa Senate chambers on Thursday, but lawmakers are nowhere near ready to pack up.

Still, the legislative session will look different starting Monday. May 3rd was the last day for much of the temporary staff and the student pages who work in the Legislature as well as the final day of expense payments for lawmakers.

Most of the 150 legislators will report to work early this week. But if negotiations drag out then numbers will likely dwindle to a smaller group of party leaders and those working on negotiating committees.

The Republicans who control the House and Democrats who rule the Senate are still trying to find resolution on major issues like education funding, property tax reductions and low-income health care.
