Policy and Legislative Services

2005 LEGISLATIVE SESSION


Overview

Each year the Director's Staff Division reviews all new legislation and compiles transportation- and government-related bills into one publication. Portions of the 2005 Iowa Acts for the DOT are listed below. The publication includes 58 of the House and Senate files passed by the General Assembly during the 2005 session.

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.

The DOT initiated several pieces of legislation. For details on legislation see HF 466 (DOT Appropriation Bill), HF 216 (Motor Vehicle Policy), HF 591 (Transportation Changes), HF 674(Secondary Road Fund Distribution), and HF 875 (Infrastructure Appropriations).


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