Notice of Intended Action

Twenty-five interested persons, a governmental subdivision, an agency or association of 25 or more persons may demand an oral presentation hereon as provided in Iowa Code section 17A.4(1)"b."

Notice is also given to the public that the Administrative Rules Review Committee may, on its own motion or on written request by any individual or group, review this proposed action under section 17A.8(6) at a regular or special meeting where the public or interested persons may be heard.

Pursuant to the authority of Iowa Code section 544C.3, the Interior Design Examining Board hereby gives Notice of Intended Action to amend Chapter 2, "Registration," Iowa Administrative Code.

The proposed amendment reduces the registration fee and places the fee structure in the rules.

Consideration will be given to all written suggestions or comments received no later than 4:30 p.m.on February 25, 2014. Comments should be addressed to Toni Bright, Interior Design Examining Board, 200 E. Grand Ave., Suite 350, Des Moines, Iowa 50309. E-mail may be sent to

A public hearing will be held on February 25, 2014, at 9 the Board Office, 200 E. Grand Ave., Suite 350, Des Moines, Iowa, at which time persons may present their views on the proposed amendment either orally or in writing. At the hearing, any person who wishes to speak will be asked to give the person's name and address for the record and to confine remarks to the subject of the proposed amendment.

This amendment has a fiscal impact to the state of Iowa of under $2000 annually based on the number of current registrants.

This rule is subject to waiver or variance pursuant to 193—Chapter 5.

After analysis and review of this rule making, a positive jobs impact could exist. A person may practice as an interior designer without registering with the Board; however, the proposed amendment reduces the registration fee, which may make registration more attractive to interior designers.

This amendment is intended to implement Iowa Code chapters 17A, 272C, and 546 and section 544C.3.

The following amendment is proposed.

Amend subrule 2.1(4) as follows:

2.1(4) Applications. Persons applying for initial or renewal registration shall submit an application on a form provided by the board and shall pay a registration fee of $275. Certificates issued to registrants with last names beginning with A through K shall expire on June 30 of even-numbered years, and certificates issued to registrants with last names beginning with L through Z shall expire on June 30 of odd-numbered years. Registration fees and continuing education requirements shall be applied pro rata to those registrants whose certificates expire in less than two years.
