It’s 2020 – These NEW Iowa Laws Are Now In Effect
Happy New Year! And, happy new... laws. A small number of new laws are now in effect, as of January 1st, 2020.
- New laws include a bill that prevents public universities and community colleges from banning stun guns on campus. Supporters say the change will improve student safety.
- Also taking effect is a law putting new restrictions on property tax hikes in place. Any proposed increase above two-percent will now require a public hearing and a two-thirds vote in order to pass.
- Becoming an organ donor is now even easier. Now that it is 2020, you have the opportunity to join the organ donor registry any time you buy a hunting or fishing license.
