Rulemaking related to renewal or extension fees

The Educational Examiners Board hereby amends Chapter 12, "Fees," Iowa Administrative Code.

Legal Authority for Rulemaking

This rulemaking is adopted under the authority provided in Iowa Code section 17A.6C as enacted by 2023 Iowa Acts, House File 688.

State or Federal Law Implemented

This rulemaking implements, in whole or in part, Iowa Code chapter 256, subchapter VII, part 3.

Purpose and Summary

2023 Iowa Acts, House File 672, created a new renewal option with a reduced fee. 2023 Iowa Acts, House File 688, directed all agencies to adopt rules related to fees. This rulemaking implements the legislation.

Public Comment and Changes to Rulemaking

Notice of Intended Action for this rulemaking was published in the Iowa Administrative Bulletin on December 13, 2023, as ARC 7193C. A public hearing was held on January 31, 2024, at 1 the Board of Educational Examiners Board Room, 701 East Court Avenue, Suite A, Des Moines, Iowa. No one attended the public hearing. No public comments were received.

One change from the Notice has been made to update the Iowa Code reference in the parenthetical implementation statute in rule 282—12.2(256).

Adoption of Rulemaking

This rulemaking was adopted by the Board on February 23, 2024.

Fiscal Impact

No new costs are anticipated; however, agency revenues will be reduced by an estimated $116,000 per year. Twenty-five percent of fees collected annually by the Board are credited to the General Fund, and the reduction in fees will result in a decrease of approximately $37,000 to the General Fund annually.

Jobs Impact

This rulemaking will help with recruitment and retention for educators.


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 Board for a waiver of the discretionary provisions, if any, pursuant to 282—Chapter 6.

Review by Administrative Rules Review Committee

The Administrative Rules Review Committee, a bipartisan legislative committee which oversees rulemaking by executive branch agencies, may, on its own motion or on written request by any individual or group, review this rulemaking at its regular monthly meeting or at a special meeting. The Committee's meetings are open to the public, and interested persons may be heard as provided in Iowa Code section 17A.8(6).

Effective Date
