    I don't think it is yet Dave, but it has passed the Iowa State Senate, but I think it has to go before the House of Reps. still.

    What was the old fella's name that has been backing the Channel for state fish? Can't remember, but have read about it.

    yes it is the new state fish we had nothing before . A lot of other states did so we had to follow along.
