Proposed Administrative Rules or Rule Revisions
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).
