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 543D.5, the Iowa Real Estate Appraiser Examining Board (Board) hereby gives Notice of Intended Action to amend Chapter 1, "Organization and Administration," Chapter 4, "Associate Real Property Appraiser," Chapter 5, "Certified Residential Real Property Appraiser," and Chapter 6, "Certified General Real Property Appraiser," Iowa Administrative Code.

The purpose of these proposed amendments is to clarify requirements for individuals seeking to become associate appraisers or to upgrade their credentials on or after January 1, 2017, in accordance with Iowa Code section 543D.22 and current Board rules. The requirement for background checks is already in effect, and these amendments circumscribe the time frame for when an application is due in relation to the completion of a background check.

Consideration will be given to all written suggestions or comments received no later than 4:30 p.m.on April 4, 2017. Comments should be addressed to Brandy March, Iowa Real Estate Appraiser Examining Board, 200 E. Grand Avenue, Third Floor, Suite 350, Des Moines, Iowa 50309. E-mail may be sent to brandy.march@iowa.gov.

A public hearing will be held on April 4, 2017, at 8:30 a.m.in the Professional Licensing Small Conference Room, 200 E. Grand Avenue, Third Floor, Des Moines, Iowa, at which time persons may present their views on the proposed amendments 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 amendments.

These amendments do not have any fiscal impact on the state of Iowa.

These amendments are subject to waiver or variance pursuant to 193F—Chapter 11.

After analysis and review of this rule making, no direct impact on jobs exists as these amendments implement procedural changes only.

These amendments are intended to implement Iowa Code chapter 543D.
