Notice of Intended Action

Proposing rule making related to debt collection

and providing an opportunity for public comment

The Labor Commissioner hereby proposes to amend Chapter 61, "Administration of Iowa Code Chapter 88A," Chapter 71, "Administration of the Conveyance Safety Program," Chapter 90, "Administration of the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Program," and Chapter 155, "Asbestos Removal and Encapsulation," Iowa Administrative Code.

Legal Authority for Rule Making

This rule making is proposed under the authority provided in Iowa Code sections 88A.3, 88B.3, 89.7(2) and 89A.3(8).

State or Federal Law Implemented

This rule making implements, in whole or in part, Iowa Code chapters 88A, 88B, 89 and 89A.

Purpose and Summary

This Notice of Intended Action contains technical and conforming amendments relating to debt collection by the College Student Aid Commission, the Child Support Recovery Unit, and the Department of Revenue. Agencies such as the Division of Labor Services that issue permits, licenses and similar authorizations must stand ready to assist in debt collection. These proposed amendments include updates and corrections relating to these duties. Several amendments propose to remove references to the College Student Aid Commission due to 2019 Iowa Acts, Senate File 304, which prohibited licensing sanctions against individuals who default or are delinquent on student loan debt or on a related service obligation.

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.
