Iowa Legislature Adjourns After Overhauling Disclosure and Filing Requirements
The Iowa Legislature adjourned sine die April 27 after a 104 day session.
In addition to legalizing sports betting and instituting limits on local government property taxes, Gov. Kim Reynolds signed a bill to modify disclosure requirements for gifts or bequests to the state.
House File 393 requires the governor and executive departments to file the gift report electronically with the Ethics and Campaign Disclosure Board if receiving a gift or bequest on behalf of the state of over $50.
The bill removes filing requirements with the General Assembly and for any gift less than $50.
