25 June Iowa


State of Iowa

The State of Iowa, Department of Public safety will hold a public hearing for the adoption of the 2014 National Electrical code (NEC) with several fire & life safety amendments. The public hearing is scheduled on August 12, 2014, at 1:00 p.m. in the 1st floor public conference room (Room 125) of the Oran Pape State Office Building, 215 East 7th Street, Des Moines, Iowa 50319. Persons may present their views orally or in writing at the public hearing. Otherwise, any written comments or information regarding these proposed amendments may be directed to the Agency Rules Administrator by mail to Agency Rules Administrator, Iowa Department of Public Safety, Oran Pape State Office Building, 215 East 7th Street, Des Moines, Iowa 50319, or by electronic mail to admrule@dps.state.ia.us by 4:30 p.m. on August 11, 2014.

I encourage the industry to come and voice their concern towards the electrical board’s actions for removing important fire & electrical safety provisions from the 2014 NEC. Iowa citizens deserve the most up to date electrical code to continue to keep the state in the forefront of electrical safety to ensure the wellbeing of all citizens in the state.
