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).

Chapter 104 Waste Conversion Technologies Permit & Annual Fees
The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is inviting people who have identified themselves as stakeholders in the Waste Conversion Technologies rulemaking process to an informal discussion on July 11th at the West Des Moines Learning Resource Center, 3550 Mills Civic Pkwy, West Des Moines, IA 50265. The meeting begins at 2:00 p.m. and is expected to last until 4:30 p.m.
The purpose is to gather input on the updated draft of the rule so that the final product can be ready for the formal rulemaking process with the Environmental Protection Commission this summer.
The agency will be taking comments on the rough draft of the rule through July 31st and then will use those comments, plus input received during the July 11th meeting, to improve the rule.
Comments can be emailed, with “WCT draft rule comments” as the subject line, to firstname.lastname@example.org
