On 7/1/2012, the Sunday Register reported on new Iowa laws which took effect on that day. One prohibits auctioneers who don’t have a real estate license from holding open houses before they hold the auction. Multiple choice: What was the reason for this law: A.) Protect auctioneers with real estate licenses from competition. B.) Protect licensed real estate agents from competition. C.) Increase revenues to the regulating agency. D.) Protect the public. I only know that the answer is not “D”.
