Policy and Legislative Services

2003 LEGISLATIVE SESSION


Overview

Each year the Director's Staff Division reviews all new legislative bills and compiles transportation- and government-related bills into one publication. Portions of the 2003 Iowa Acts for the DOT (formerly named Session Laws) are listed below. The publication includes 50 of the 191 House and Senate Files passed by the General Assembly during the 2003 regular session and the May/June 2003 special session and signed into law by Governor Thomas J. Vilsack.

The Subject Listing shows the bills by category and bill number. The five subject listing categories are: Appropriations; Highway; Motor Vehicle; Air, Rail, Transit, and Water; and Government and Administration.

The Index by Code Section identifies certain Code sections amended by the bills, along with the bill number and a brief explanation of the change.

The Reports/Studies Required page lists those reports/studies that affect the DOT.

The Administrative Rules page identifies rules that the DOT must adopt or amend as a result of the new legislation.

To view DOT legislation in detail, see SF97 (Transportation Changes) and HF652 (DOT Appropriations).


Copies of the bills are also available on the General Assembly's Web site.
