     Militia groups have formed in lowa, but there is little
evidence of their size and influence.

     Paul Stauffer, an Air Force veteran living in Cedar
Rapids and the self-described "national contact" for the
lowa Militias has claimed that his organization operates in
35 counties; he has not offered specific membership figures.
He contends that lowa militia members are concerned with
"intelligence" gathering activities. and that the group
maintains contacts with militia leaders across the country.

     A May 3, 1995, Cedar Rapids meeting organized by
Stauffer found many among the audience of 60 parroting the
fevered anti-government conspiracy theories of the militia
movement.
