Asbestos notification fee; fee adjustment process, 30.3, 30.6
ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION COMMISSION
Notice of Termination
Terminating rule making related to fee amounts and adjustment process
The Environmental Protection Commission hereby terminates the rule making initiated by its Notice of Intended Action published in the Iowa Administrative Bulletin on February 14, 2018, as ARC 3622C, proposing to amend Chapter 30, "Fees," Iowa Administrative Code.
Legal Authority for Rule Making
The above-mentioned rule making is terminated under the authority provided in Iowa Code sections 17A.4(1)"b" and 455B.133C.
Purpose and Summary
The Notice of Intended Action proposed to amend existing rules to increase the fee and dollar cap for asbestos notifications, to rescind an exemption to the asbestos notification fee to address confusion about whether a fee is required, and to provide a process for the Department of Natural Resources (Department) to request that the Commission adjust fees at any time during a fiscal year if the Department determines that established fees are projected to be insufficient to maintain all or part of any air quality program that is subject to fees specified in Chapter 30.
Reason for Termination
The Commission received comments during the public comment period that will require additional time to evaluate and discuss with stakeholders. The Department, on behalf of the Commission, will meet with stakeholders to discuss a revised proposal. However, the Commission must terminate the rule making because the Department will not be able to confer with stakeholders before the statutory 180-day deadline to adopt a rule making established under Iowa Code section 17A.4(1)"b."
After analysis and review of this rule making, no impact on jobs has been found.
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).
