Rule making related to offset of county debts owed department

The Human Services Department (Department) hereby amends Chapter 14, "Offset of County Debts Owed Department," Iowa Administrative Code.

Legal Authority for Rule Making

This rule making is adopted under the authority provided in Iowa Code sections 217.6 and 234.6.

State or Federal Law Implemented

This rule making implements, in whole or in part, Iowa Code sections 217.6 and 234.6.

Purpose and Summary

The Department is eliminating Chapter 14 in its entirety. The process for offsets of debts owed to state agencies in this chapter is duplicative of the requirements in 11—Chapter 40 and the setoff procedures in Iowa Code section 8A.504. Because the Department of Administrative Services has established a process by which state agencies can participate in the offset program by identifying debtors who owe liabilities to that agency and offsetting those liabilities against claims owed to debtors by agencies, this chapter is no longer necessary.
