Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - January 24, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Hip Cedar Rapids Gazette: Thurs., Jan. 24. 1971 Commissioners, Legislators Meet on Financial Disclosure (Continued from Page I.) things, requiring only that disposition of any balance in the treasury be reported Three members of the five-person state commission were contacted by The Gazette for comments on the situation Each indicated implementation 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 commission met with legislators in Des Moines Monday with a three-page list of problems encountered by the commission in carrying out its task. Chairman Charles Uehling, Davenport, said it may be that the law calls for the dissolution forms to include income and disbursements since the last quarterly report. 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 candidate should be required to list his contributions and expenditures. Attach Form If it is determined the dissolution reports are to include such information, he said, the commission will probably attach quarterly report forms to the dissolution forms. The reason for this is the expense of printing and mailing 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 include receipts and disbursements since the last quarterly report. Plans Research Commissioner Charles Wiggins said it is an interesting question and he will research it before the next commission meeting. Committees should not be able to dissolve without reporting income and expenses They also noted there have been suggestions that election commissioners be required to file summary reports with the commission within a certain tune period after each reporting date. Complaint Procedure Complaints may be filed with the commission only by ail opposing candidate, candidate's political committee or statutory political committee. The commission may initiate action on its own motion, also. T h e commission recommended that county commissioners be required to make periodic summary reports to the state commissioner. From this information the commission could make public reports. The commission also listed several items, not esssential to its duties, but considered important enough to bring to t h e legislature’s attention These included: A possible occasion when a committee spends money supporting a candidate within a few days of an election, which would place the candidate over his campaign limit; however. within the 72-hour limit, but after the election, the candidate renounces the support of such committee The commission believes legislation, such as that requiring non-endorsed committees to state they are not endorsed in all advertising, may be necessary. To facilitate the commission in overseeing candidate and committee expense, the commission would like to have candidates required to report a list of committees they recognize as supporting them and that such a list be submitted with their financial reports. Several Reports Still Missing Two Linn county candidates for city or school board offices who had campaign expenses of more than $100 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 $100 in income or ex peases had no annual reports on file Thursday. Those are in addition to the seven candidates who reported campaign incomes of more than $100 but had no an nual reports on file Tuesday, as reported then. Due Jan. 2ft Annual reports were due Jan. 20 if income or expenses exceeded $100 for 1973 Those without annual reports who reported earlier expenses of more than $100 are James A Trinka and Charles Ligons. both unsuccessful candidates for safety commissioner. 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, unsuccessful candidate for safety commissioner; Gregory Schaefers committee, unsuccessful 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. j Thomas Gardner committee filed a report and dissolution Thursday. Both were unsuccessful candidates for safety commissioner. Willful violation of the statute subjects the offender to a fine of not more than $1,000 or imprisonment in the county jail for not more than 30 days. Johnson County Asks Ruling on Data Contract IOWA CITY The Johnson I county board of supervisors is going to court over the legality of a contract between County Auditor Delores Rogers and a Cedar Rapids data processing firm. Al a Wednesdax afternoon meeting, the board voted 2 to 0 (Lorada Cilek abstained) to have the district court rule on the legality of Iowa Data Processing handling the county’s voter registration services Richard Bartel and Robert I Burns voted for the motion. The county presently has a four-year contract with the firm, paying the firm $21,000 for services in 1973. According to County Attorney (Carl Goetz, the principal issue is whether the commissioner of elections (Mrs. Rogers! has the authority to sign such a contract without approval of the board of (supervisors.
