Aside from the beginning of the year, July 1 is typically the day when new laws take effect. Today, a handful of new regulations go into effect in Iowa.

  • Iowa police can now pull you over if they suspect you of texting and driving, and will saddle you with a $100 fine.
  • Distilleries can now serve their product on-site like breweries and wineries.
  • There are also a whole slew of second amendment laws that take effect today.
