A new state website has been set up to help business owners learn about proposed new rules impacting their businesses.
Gov. Terry Branstad announced the website during his weekly news conference Monday morning.
Branstad said rules.iowa.gov will give business owners more information and allow them to comment on new administrative rules.
“Public participation in forming administrative rules helps Iowa reform burdensome rules and prevents over regulation and government red tape thus encouraging efficiency, economic growth and job creation,” said Branstad in a news release. “We are pleased to launch Rules.Iowa.gov today to give Iowans greater access to their government and the ability to weigh-in on proposed rules conveniently and effectively at any time during the rule process.”
