The Department underwent statutory reorganization in 2010 (2010 Iowa Acts, Senate File 2088).

The Division on the Status of African-Americans[434] no longer has rule-making authority; rule-making authority is vested in the Department. The Department is rescinding rules under the previous divisions and is consolidating and adopting new comprehensive rules under the Human Rights Department[421] (ARC 6101C, IAB 12/29/21).
