Adoption of Rule Making
This rule making was adopted by the Superintendent of Banking on September 19, 2018.
No current fees are being changed, and no new fees are being added; therefore, the IDOB has concluded that these amendments will not have a fiscal impact to the State of Iowa.
Because no existing authorized activities are being restricted, no new activities are being authorized, no existing fees are being increased, and no new fees are being added, the IDOB has concluded that these amendments will have no impact on jobs in Iowa.
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 IDOB for a waiver of the discretionary provisions, if any, pursuant to 187—Chapter 12.
