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.

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 item vetoed by the Governor. Item vetoed text is also indicated by asterisks at the beginning and ending of the vetoed material. Asterisks may also indicate explanatory footnotes.

Effective dates. The Acts took effect on July 1, 1997, 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.l 0(7) 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 has been placed at the begin- ning of the enacting clause and a footnote included for each enrolled Act which requires the estimate.

Court rules. This volume includes the Rules and Forms of the Supreme Court submitted to the Legislative Council as provided in Iowa Code section 602.4202.
