Pursuant to the authority of Iowa Code section 455G.4, the Iowa Comprehensive Petroleum Underground Storage Tank Fund Board hereby gives Notice of Intended Action to rescind Chapter 5, "Determination or Adjustment of Cost Factor," Chapter 6, "Administration of the Environmental Protection Charge Imposed upon Petroleum Diminution," Chapter 10, "Restructuring of Insurance Board and Transfer of Assets and Liabilities of Insurance Fund," Chapter 12, "Guaranteed Loan Program," and Chapter 14, "Aboveground Petroleum Storage Tank Fund," Iowa Administrative Code.
The rescissions of Chapters 5 and 6 implement 2016 Iowa Acts, House File 2464, which removed the authority to collect or administer the environmental protection charge (EPC). Chapters 10, 12 and 14 were created to implement Iowa Code sections 455G.11, 455G.10, and 455G.23, respectively, and each of these sections has since been repealed.
