Notice of Intended Action

Proposing rulemaking related to required fees

and providing an opportunity for public comment

The Iowa Division of Banking (IDOB) hereby proposes to amend Chapter 2, "Application Procedures," Iowa Administrative Code.

Legal Authority for Rulemaking

This rulemaking is proposed under the authority provided in Iowa Code section 524.213.

State or Federal Law Implemented

This rulemaking implements, in whole or in part, Iowa Code sections 524.213, 524.303, 524.305, 524.312, 524.544, 524.802A, 524.1201, 524.1303, 524.1309, 524.1401, 524.1402, 524.1403, 524.1404, 524.1405, 524.1410, 524.1413, 524.1415, 524.1505, 524.1508 and 524.1509.

Purpose and Summary

This proposed rule codifies the administrative fees the IDOB has adopted for banks when filing certain corporate applications. The proposed fees are identical to the fees the IDOB currently charges for the specified applications but which have not previously been adopted by rule.

Fiscal Impact

This rulemaking has no fiscal impact to the State of Iowa. All fees the IDOB collects in connection with corporate applications filed by banks effectively reduce the amount of the quarterly assessments the IDOB charges to all state banks to cover the IDOB's operating expenses, enabling the IDOB to collect the same total amount of funds for operations.

Jobs Impact

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


Any person who believes that the application of the discretionary provisions of this rulemaking would result in hardship or injustice to that person may petition the IDOB for a waiver of the discretionary provisions, if any, pursuant to 187—Chapter 12.

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 IDOB no later than 4:30 p.m.on February 27, 2024. Comments should be directed to:

Review by Administrative Rules Review Committee
