Iowa Legislature creates new public information board

Posted:

The Iowa Legislature has voted to create a new state agency called the Iowa Public Information Board.

The agency would investigate complaints about city and county governments that fail to comply with Iowa's open meetings and open records laws.

The senate voted 49 to zero this afternoon.

The bill now goes to Governor Terry Branstad who has indicated he would support creating the agency.
