Summary available of open records changes

The Iowa Freedom of Information Council, with valuable help from the Iowa Code Editor’s Office, is making available a summary of changes made to Iowa’s “sunshine” laws during the 2017 session of the Legislature.

The summary document is available here: Chapter22.2017.Changes

The summary sheet is formatted so people can print out the two pages and fold the summary and clip it to their copy of the Iowa FOI Council’s popular Iowa Open Meetings Open Records Handbook.

A new edition of the handbook, with the 2017 changes along with any changes lawmakers make this year, will be published late in 2017 or early in 2018.
