Notice of Intended Action

Proposing rule making related to economic assistance fraud bureau and providing an opportunity for public comment

The Inspections and Appeals Department hereby proposes to rescind Chapter 74, "Economic Assistance Fraud Bureau," Iowa Administrative Code.

Legal Authority for Rule Making

This rule making is proposed under the authority provided in Iowa Code sections 10A.104 and 10A.401 to 10A.403.

State or Federal Law Implemented

This rule making implements, in whole or in part, Iowa Code sections 10A.104 and 10A.401 to 10A.403.

Purpose and Summary

The proposed amendment is the result of a comprehensive review of the Department's Investigations Division rules. Another rule making (published herein as ARC 3792C, IAB 5/9/18) combines the content of current Chapter 74 with that of Chapter 72 to create a new chapter that more clearly and accurately describes the work of the Investigations Division's Economic Fraud Control Bureau. Therefore, current Chapter 74 is obsolete and unnecessary.

Fiscal Impact

This rule making has no fiscal impact to the State of Iowa.

Jobs Impact

After analysis and review of this rule making, no impact on jobs has been found.


Any person who believes that the application of the discretionary provisions of this rule making would result in hardship or injustice to that person may petition the Department for a waiver of the discretionary provisions, if any, pursuant to 481—Chapter 6.

Public Comment

Any interested person may submit written comments concerning this proposed rule making. Written comments in response to this rule making must be received by the Department no later than 4:30 p.m.on May 29, 2018. Comments should be directed to:

321 East 12th Street

Des Moines, Iowa 50319-0083

Fax: 515.242.6863


Public Hearing

No public hearing is scheduled at this time. As provided in Iowa Code section 17A.4(1)"b," an oral presentation regarding this rule making may be demanded by 25 interested persons, a governmental subdivision, the Administrative Rules Review Committee, an agency, or an association having 25 or more members.

Review by Administrative Rules Review Committee

The Administrative Rules Review Committee, a bipartisan legislative committee which oversees rule making by executive branch agencies, may, on its own motion or on written request by any individual or group, review this rule making at its regular monthly meeting or at a special meeting. The Committee's meetings are open to the public, and interested persons may be heard as provided in Iowa Code section 17A.8(6).

The following rule-making action is proposed:

Rescind and reserve 481—Chapter 74.
