The Administrative Procedures Act, Iowa Code chapter 17A, requires all state agencies to promulgate rules for the operation of their programs. The rulemaking process increases agencies’ accountability to the public, allows public participation in the formulation of rules, and provides legislative oversight for program operations. Below are the recent rulemaking activities that are being considered, have been proposed or are in the process of being adopted by the DNR for the chapters administered by the Solid Waste section and the Financial and Business Assistance section. Many of these proposals are a direct result of the comprehensive five year rule review required by 17A.7(2).

As a result of the changes to 455J, we are proposing the following revisions to rule chapter 567 IAC 111. Proposed rule changes include:
Your comments on these proposed changes will be helpful in developing a final rule to present to the Environmental Protection Commission. To keep the process moving along, please provide comments by September 1, 2017.
