Some members of the Iowa Senate do not think that public notices published in newspapers remain relevant and necessary. A bill filed in the newly-formed Technology Committee this month moved through committee in two days and last week moved through the Ways & Means Committee in one day. Senate File 546 would result in removing a major component of government transparency. This legislation would require legal notices to be posted on a website controlled by the very government legal notices are designed to oversee and notices would not be required to published in a local newspaper.
