Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - January 24, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Thurs., Jan. 24, 1914 Commissioners, Legislators Meet on Financial Disclosure (Continued from Page 1.) things, requiring only that dis- position of any balance in Ihe treasury be reported. Three members of the five- person state commission were contacted by The Gazette for comments on Ihe situation. Each indicated implementa- tion of the new law, as is often the case with new legislation, will require a period of time for clearing up matters. In fact, they said, the com- mission met with legislators in Des Moines Monday with a three-page list of problems en- countered by the commission in carrying out its task. Chairman Charles Rehling, Davenport, said it may be that the law calls for the dissolution forms to include income and disbursements since the last quarterly re- port. In any case, he said, if the amount disposed of on the dissolution form is different from the balance on the last quarterly report, the can- didate should be required to list his contributions and ex- penditures. Attach Form If it is determined the disso- lution reports are to include such information, he said, the commission will probably at- tach quarterly report forms to the dissolution forms. The reason for this is the expense of printing and mail- ing new forms. He said the secretary of state had to get the forms printed by September and commended him for getting the job done. Commissioner Russell Ross, Iowa City, said he thinks it is "absolutely right" that the dissolution reports should in- clude receipts and disburse- ments since the last quarterly report. Plans Research Commissioner Charles Wig- gins said it is an interesting question and he will research it before, the next commission meeting. Committees should not be able to dissolve without re- porting income and expenses since their previous report, he said. Deputy Secretary of State Herman Schweiker said Thursday there is at least an implication in the forms that all receipts and disbursements are to be reported, although it may not be specifically stat- ed. He said attaching a report form to the notice of dissolu- tion might be appropriate. Problems Mentioned Among problems mentioned by the commission to legisla- tors Monday was the present law permits can- didates for school boards and municipal offices to avoid public disclosure, before an election, of contributions and disbursements. The commission recom- mended candidates for those offices be required to submit a current report on those items due five days before the election. They also noted there have been suggestions that election commissioners be required to file summary reports with the commission within a certain time period after each report- ing date. Complaint Procedure Complaints may be filed with the commission only by an opposing candidate, can- didate's political committee or statutory political committee. The commission may initi- ate action on its own motion, also. T h e commission recom- mended that county commis- sioners be required to make periodic summary reports to Ihe state commissioner. From this information the commis- sion could make public re- ports. The commission also listed several items, not esssential to its duties, but considered important enough io bring to t h e legislature's attention. These included: A possible occasion when a committee spends money sup- porting a candidate within a few days of an election, which would place the candidate over his campaign limit; how- ever, within the 72-hour limit, but after the election, the can- didate renounces the support of such committee. The commission believes legislation, such as that re- quiring non-endorsed commit- tees to state they are not en- dorsed in all advertising, may be necessary. To facilitate the commission in overseeing candidate and committee expense, the com- mission would like to have candidates required to report a list of committees they rec- ognize as supporting them and that such a list be submit- ted with their financial re- ports. Several Reports Still Missing Two Linn county candidates for city or school board offices who had campaign expenses of more than S100 as reported in October reports did not have annual reports on file in the auditor's office Thursday. Two other candidates and one political committee which filed reports in October with less than in income or ex- penses had no annual reports on file Thursday. These are in addition to the seven candidates who report- ed campaign incomes of more than but had no an- nual reports on file Tuesday, as reported then. Due Jan. 20 Annual reports were due Jan. 20 if income or expenses exceeded for 1973. Those without annual re- ports who reported earlier ex- penses of more than are James A. Trinka and Charles Ligons. both unsuccessful can- didates for safety commis- sioner. Charles Wiggins, Ames, member of the commission which oversees the law, told The Gazette Wednesday that candidates o r committees which file quarterly reports are required to continue filing reports until dissolution. October Reports Candidates and committees which filed October reports, but had no annual report on file Thursday are John D. Oberthien committee, unsuc- cessful candidate for safety commissioner; Gregory Schaefers committee, unsuc- cessful candidate for Center Point mayor, and the Young Republicans of Linn county. Two persons mentioned in the Tuesday story about not having annual reports on file have filed reports since then. Floyd Bergen committee filed a report Wednesday. Thomas Gardner committee filed a report and dissolution Thursday. Both were unsuc- cessful candidates for safety commissioner. Willful violation of the stat- ute subjects the offender to a fine of not more than or imprisonment in the county jail for not more than 30 days.
