Rescission of a rule that required recovering mercury switches from scrap vehicles is up for final approval.
Also up for approval, a final rule adopting several new federal air quality standards, such as measuring air pollutant emissions. This rule will ensure Iowa is consistent with federal laws and not any more stringent.
Commissioners will be asked to approve rule changes to the dam safety program, consolidating most of the rules into one chapter. Proposed changes will bring Iowa’s regulations up to national standards and help people know when a permit is required.
DNR will ask the commission to approve going forward with a proposal to bring waste tire management rules into alignment with recent changes in state law.
