Rule making related to organization of the department

The Public Health Department hereby amends Chapter 170, "Organization of the Department," Iowa Administrative Code.

Legal Authority for Rule Making

This rule making is adopted under the authority provided in 2017 Iowa Acts, House File 653, division XXIII, and 2018 Iowa Acts, Senate File 2418, section 110 [Iowa Code section 135.15].

State or Federal Law Implemented

This rule making implements, in whole or in part, 2017 Iowa Acts, House File 653, division XXIII, and 2018 Iowa Acts, Senate File 2418, section 110.

Purpose and Summary

The amendments are minor cleanup actions related to recent legislation. 2018 Iowa Acts, Senate File 2418, section 110, updated the name of the "oral health bureau" to the "oral and health delivery system bureau." The amendment in Item 1 updates the bureau name. 2017 Iowa Acts, House File 653, division XXIII, removed all references to the Office of Minority and Multicultural Health from the Iowa Code. House File 653 also removed the underlying statutory authority for Chapter 82, which was rescinded in 2018. The amendment in Item 2 rescinds the paragraph that refers to that office. The amendment in Item 3 reletters the remaining paragraphs in subrule 170.7(6).
