Notice of Intended Action

Proposing rule making related to holiday rest stops

and promotion of Iowa agricultural products at interstate rest areas

and providing an opportunity for public comment

The Department of Transportation hereby proposes to amend Chapter 105, "Holiday Rest Stops," and Chapter 106, "Promotion of Iowa Agricultural Products at Rest Areas," Iowa Administrative Code.

Legal Authority for Rule Making

This rule making is proposed under the authority provided in Iowa Code sections 307.12 and 314.27 and 1995 Iowa Acts, chapter 18, section 2.

State or Federal Law Implemented

This rule making implements, in whole or in part, Iowa Code section 314.27 and 1995 Iowa Acts, chapter 18, section 2.

Purpose and Summary

The proposed amendments to Chapters 105 and 106 correct the name of the Maintenance Bureau and remove district offices from the list of locations from which a form may be requested to sponsor a holiday rest stop or promote an Iowa agricultural product at an interstate rest area. These forms are still available on the Department's website and from the Maintenance Bureau.

This proposed rule making also requires that any requests be submitted to the Maintenance Bureau. The Maintenance Bureau will approve or deny the requests. The district offices are no longer involved in the administration of these programs.

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.

Waivers

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 761—Chapter 11.

Any interested person may submit written comments concerning this proposed rule making or may submit a written request to make an oral presentation at a public hearing.
