Iowa Public Information Board
The Public Information Board was created by the Iowa Legislature in 2012, to serve as a one-stop destination to answer your questions or address your concerns regarding Chapters 21 and 22, Iowa’s open meetings and public records laws. The board provides information and training on open-records and open-meetings laws to government entities and Iowa residents, but also is empowered to receive and investigate complaints and levy penalties for violations of the law.
