By a 43-6 vote, The Iowa Senate agreed to create a new citizen’s board to help the public gain access to public records and meetings. The bill was strongly opposed by lobbyists for cities, counties, school boards and public hospitals and it has yet to be considered by the House. The local officials are particularly concerned about what they say is ambiguity in the open meeting provisions. (4/16/08)
