Rule-Making Process & Proposed Rules
The IUB prepares a chart of its Rule-Making Dockets (RMUs) currently in active status. The chart lists the active RMU dockets by chapter number and is updated weekly. An active RMU docket will remain on the chart until the rule making is terminated or the rule amendments become effective.
The active rule makings are also available for review on the State of Iowa's Administrative Rules website.
You may comment on the noticed rules until the end of the comment period by filing:
* Orally, or in writing if proposed rules set an opportunity for oral presentation.
* Written comments in the docket using the IUB's online open docket comment form.
The IUB’s rules regarding rule-making procedures are at 199 Iowa Administrative Code chapter 3.
Matt Oetker has been designated the Agency Rules Administrator. The Administrator’s address is 1375 E. Court Ave., Des Moines, IA 50319.
You can determine when the Administrative Rules Review Committee will be considering the rules in the docket by accessing the Committee’s agenda. The rules are usually considered by the Committee the month after the proposed rules are published in the Iowa Administrative Bulletin.
