    • Not anymore, sir. Gov. Terry Branstad signed Senate File 2288 into law March 9, 2016. The law makes juvenile records confidential unless a judge issues an order making them public. The law followed on a recommendation made by the governor’s Working Group on Justice Policy Reform and drew support from figures in local and state government, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and others. “Senate File 2288: an Act relating to the confidentiality of juvenile court records in delinquency proceedings” passed the Iowa Senate 48-0 Feb. 25, 2016, and the Iowa House 97-1 March 1, 2016.
