A committee of Iowa lawmakers is drafting a proposal for a state open government board to investigate complaints and fine agencies and officials who violate open meetings and records laws. The proposed law would require agencies to make public financial and decision-making records and give citizens a method of challenging records and meetings closures short of going to court. (1/11/08)
