Lobbyist Disclosure Law Not Enforced

According to this Des Moines Register report, Iowa’s lobbyist disclosure law is not enforced.

State officials concede the disclosure law is not enforced. Senate Ethics Committee Vice Chairman Dick Dearden, D-Des Moines, said he does not recall any organization ever being punished for not filing reception disclosures properly.

“I don’t know if anyone ever checks them,” Dearden said.
