Iowa bill to keep volunteers secret may shield criminals, critics say

Iowa would make the names of public volunteers confidential under a fast-moving bill that critics warn could protect pedophiles and other criminals who are found working for government and public institutions in nonpaying positions, sometimes with children.

"Just think about that the next time a school volunteer is found to have been involved in molesting a child,” said Randy Evans, executive director of the Iowa Freedom of Information Council and the Register's former opinion page editor. "This is about accountability and public safety. The citizens of Iowa have a right to know who is performing government services on their behalf.”
