The Board reviewed its administrative rules on an open and systematic basis to ensure the rules are up-to-date and current, meet present and future needs, are plainspoken, direct, productive and are necessary to carry out the laws of Iowa. Many people assisted the Board in that review process by submitting comments, suggestions, and objections to existing rules and by reviewing and commenting on proposed amendments. Thank you all for your assistance. The Board encourages comments and suggestions from stakeholders and other constituents at all times.
Waiver/Variance from Board Rules. The Board may grant a waiver or variance from all or part of a Board rule. This link will take you to additional information and access to a summary of actions on petitions since January 1, 2001.
