Notice of Intended Action

Proposing rulemaking related to forms

and providing an opportunity for public comment

The Utilities Board hereby proposes to rescind Chapter 2, "Forms," Iowa Administrative Code.

Legal Authority for Rulemaking

This rulemaking is proposed under the authority provided in Iowa Code sections 17A.3, 474.5 and 476.2.

State or Federal Law Implemented

This rulemaking implements, in whole or in part, Iowa Code section 17A.3.

Purpose and Summary

The purpose of Chapter 2 is to inform the public of the location of Board-approved forms that the public may use in connection with requests for Board action or in proceedings before the Board. However, the forms will be available for public use on the Board's website irrespective of Chapter 2; therefore, the chapter is unnecessary and is proposed to be rescinded.

Fiscal Impact

This rulemaking has no fiscal impact to the State of Iowa.

Jobs Impact

After analysis and review of this rulemaking, no impact on jobs has been found.

Waivers

No waiver provision is included in the proposed amendment because the Board has a general waiver provision in rule 199—1.3(17A,474,476) that provides procedures for requesting a waiver of the Board's rules.

Public Comment

Any interested person may submit written comments concerning this proposed rulemaking. Written comments in response to this rulemaking must be received by the Board no later than 4:30 p.m.on February 29, 2024. Comments should be directed to:
