IOWA LAWMAKERS PASSED MORE THAN 150 BILLS THIS PAST YEAR, AND ELEVEN OF THEM WILL GO INTO EFFECT ON JANUARY 1ST.

THE STATE’S NINE INDIVIDUAL INCOME TAX RATES WILL BE CONSOLIDATED INTO FOUR, RANGING FROM FOUR-POINT-FOUR PERCENT TO SIX PERCENT.

AN UPDATE TO IOWA’S BOTTLE BILL RAISES THE HANDLING FEE FOR REDEMPTION CENTERS AND GROCERY STORES TO THREE CENTS.

IT ALSO ALLOWS FOR MOBILE REDEMPTION CENTERS AND LETS RETAILERS OPT OUT OF THE PRACTICE.

ANOTHER NEW LAW WILL STOP HEALTHCARE ORGANIZATIONS FROM BACKING OUT ON REIMBURSEMENT AGREEMENTS AFTER THE SERVICE WAS ALREADY PROVIDED.

ONE OF THE NEW LAWS UPDATES THE LEGAL DEFINITION OF AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER, MAKING IT EASIER FOR IOWANS TO GET COVERAGE TO CARE FOR THE CONDITION.
