UPDATE: Iowa Democrats debate through night on bargaining bill

CORALVILLE COURIER EDITOR'S NOTE: This is about money, nothing but. Democrats will lose political contributions, don't believe anything else they try to tell you. It's about money.

The proposed changes to Iowa's collective bargaining law would drastically change how public sector unions negotiate and organize on behalf of roughly 180,000 people in the state. Academics say the ripple effect is weakened unions with reduced membership and less financial stability.

That could impact how those labor groups are able to lobby for legislative changes. Data show key public sector unions in Iowa often finance Democrats.
