PREFACE

CERTIFICATION

We, Diane E. Bolender, Director, Legislative Service Bureau, Leslie E. W. Hickey, Iowa Code Editor, and Joanne R. Page, Deputy Iowa Code Editor, certify that, to the best of our knowledge, the Acts and Resolutions in this volume have been prepared from the original enrolled Acts and Resolutions on file in the office of the Secretary of State; are correct copies of those Acts and Resolutions; are published under the authority of the statutes of this state; and constitute the Acts and Resolutions of the 2001 Regular Session and the 2001 Extraordinary Session of the Seventy-ninth General Assembly of the State of Iowa.

STATUTES AS EVIDENCE

Iowa Code section 622.59 is as follows: 622.59 Printed copies of statutes. Printed copies of the statute laws of this or any other

of the United States, or of Congress, or of any foreign government, purporting or proved to have been published under the authority thereof, or proved to be commonly admitted as evidence of the existing laws in the courts of such state or government, shall be admitted in the courts of this state as presumptive evidence of such laws.

EXPLANATORY NOTES

Temporary Code numbers. CODE NUMBERS ASSIGNED TO NEW SECTIONS AND SUBSECTIONS IN THE ACTS ARE TEMPORARY AND MAY BE CHANGED WHEN THE 2001 IOWA CODE SUPPLEMENT IS PUBLISHED. Changes will be shown in the Tables of Disposition of Acts in the 2001 Iowa Code Supplement.

Typographic style. The Acts and Resolutions in this volume are printed as they appear on file in the office of the Secretary of State. No editorial corrections have been made. Underlined type indicates new material added to existing statutes; strike-through type indi- cates deleted material. Italics within an Act indicate material that the Governor has item vetoed. Item vetoed text is also indicated by asterisks at the beginning and ending of the vetoed material. Superscript numbers indicate explanatory footnotes.

Effective dates. The Acts of the 2001 Regular Session took effect on July 1, 2001, unless otherwise provided. The Acts of the 2001 Extraordinary Session took effect on September 17, 2001, unless otherwise provided. See Iowa Code section 3. 7. The date of enactment is the date an Act is approved by the Governor, which is shown at the end of each Act.

State mandates. Iowa Code section 25B.5 requires that for each enacted bill or joint resolution containing a state mandate (defined in section 25B.3), an estimate of additional local revenue expenditures required by the mandate must be filed with the Secretary of State. Section 2B.10(6) states that a notation of the filing of the estimate must be included in the session laws with the text of the bill or resolution. A dagger is placed at the beginning of the enacting clause and a footnote included for each enrolled Act which requires the estimate.

Resolutions. Concurrent resolutions and Senate and House resolutions are generally not included. See bound Senate and House Journals for adopted resolutions.
