c. An annual budget for operation of the program and activities agreed to in the contract including provisions related to the transfer of funds to the community college, as agreed upon by the president of the community college and the exeeutive aireeter foundation.

d. Performance measures for quarterly and annual evaluation of the program and activities agreed to in the contract. The foundation may withhold the disbursement of funds for failure to achieve criteria established in the contract.

e. The duties of the industrial technology outreach specialist. f. The provision of technical assistance to existing individual industry or industrial sectors

or nonmanufacturing business regarding available technological and management innovations to improve products, processes, and management systems, including implementation of total quality management methods.

2. The foundation may provide or contract for the delivery of technical services to individual industry or industrial sectors.

3. The eJceeutive aireeteF af the foundation shall issue requests for proposals to the commu- nity colleges and shall select the best proposals after considering, among other factors, the geographic distribution of the provision of the program services to areas of the state which do not serve a city with a population over twenty thousand, the number of small and medium- sized industries within the community college district, and the level of community college inter- action with those industries. Community colleges in contiguous regions may submit a joint proposal.

Sec. 7. Section 15E.156, Code 1993, is repealed.

Sec. 8. The terms of the standing, appointed, and ex officio members of the board of direc- tors existing on the effective date of section 3 of this Act are terminated at midnight on June 30, 1993.

Sec. 9. Section 3 of this Act, as it applies to the appointment of members of the board of directors, takes effect upon enactment. The remaining sections of this Act take effect on July 1, 1993.

CHAPTER 50 IOWA PLANE COORDINATE SYSTEM

S.F. 943

AN ACT relating to standards for land surveying by designating an Iowa plane coordinate system.

Be It Enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Iowa:

Section 1. NEW SECTION. 355.16 IOWA PLANE COORDINATE SYSTEM DEFINED. As used in this section, and sections 355.17 through 355.19, unless the context otherwise

requires, "Iowa plane coordinate system" or "coordinate system" means the system of plane coordinates established by the United States national ocean survey, or the United States national geodetic survey, or a successor agency, for defining and stating the geographic positions or locations of points on the surface of the earth within the state of Iowa.

Sec. 2. NEW SECTION. 355.17 DESIGNATION OF COORDINATE ZONES. The Iowa plane coordinate system is divided into two zones designated as follows:

CH. 50 LAWS OF THE SEVENTY -FIFTH G.A., 1993 SESSION 78

1. a. The area now included in the following counties constitutes the north zone: Allamakee, Benton, Black Hawk, Boone, Bremer, Buchanan, Buena Vista, Butler, Calhoun, Carroll, Cerro Gordo, Cherokee, Chickasaw, Clay, Clayton, Crawford, Delaware, Dickinson, Dubuque, Emmet, Fayette, Floyd, Franklin, Greene, Grundy, Hamilton, Hancock, Hardin, Howard, Humboldt, Ida, Jackson, Jones, Kossuth, Linn, Lyon, Marshall, Mitchell, Monona, O'Brien, Osceola, Palo Alto, Plymouth, Pocahontas, Sac, Sioux, Story, Tama, Webster, Winnebago, Winneshiek, Woodbury, Worth, and Wright.

b. The coordinate system north zone is a Lambert conformal conic projection of the north American datum of 1983, having standard parallels at north latitudes forty-two degrees, four minutes, and forty-three degrees, sixteen minutes, along which parallels the scale shall be exact. The origin of coordinates is at the intersection of the meridian ninety-three degrees, thirty minutes west of Greenwich, and the parallel forty-one degrees, thirty minutes north latitude. This origin is given the coordinates: x equals one million five hundred thousand meters exact and y equals one million meters exact.

2. a. The area now included in the following counties constitutes the south zone: Adair, Adams, Appanoose, Audubon, Cass, Cedar, Clarke, Clinton, Dallas, Davis, Decatur, Des Moines, Fremont, Guthrie, Harrison, Henry, Iowa, Jasper, Jefferson, Johnson, Keokuk, Lee, Louisa, Lucas, Madison, Mahaska, Marion, Mills, Monroe, Montgomery, Muscatine, Page, Polk, Pottawattamie, Poweshiek, Ringgold, Scott, Shelby, Taylor, Union, Van Buren, Wapello, Warren, Washington, and Wayne.

b. The coordinate system south zone is a Lambert conformal conic project of the north Ameri- can datum of 1983, having standard parallels at north latitudes forty degrees, thirty-seven minutes, and forty-one degrees, forty-seven minutes, along which parallels the scale shall be exact. The origin of coordinates is at the intersection of the meridian ninety-three degrees, thirty minutes west of Greenwich, and the parallel forty degrees, zero minutes north lati- tude. This origin is given the coordinates: x equals five hundred thousand meters exact and y equals zero meters exact.

Sec. 3. NEW SECTION. 355.18 IDENTIFICATION OF GEOGRAPHIC LOCATIONS. The plane coordinate values for a point on the earth's surface used to express the geographic

position or location of the point in the appropriate zone of the coordinate system shall consist of two distances expressed in meters and decimals of a meter. One of these distances, to be known as the "x-coordinate", shall give the position in an east-and-west direction; the other, to be known as the "y-coordinate", shall give the position in a north-and-south direction. These coordinates shall be made to depend upon and conform to plane rectangular coordinate values for the monumented points of the north American horizontal geodetic control network as pub- lished by the United States national ocean survey, or the United States national geodetic sur- vey, or a successor agency. Any monumented point may be used for establishing a survey connection to the coordinate system.

Sec. 4. NEW SECTION. 355.19 APPLICATION OF TERMS. The use of the term "Iowa plane coordinate system north zone" or "Iowa plane coordinate

system south zone" on a map, report of survey, or other document shall be limited to coor- dinates based on the Iowa plane coordinate system as defined in this chapter.

CHAPTER 51 RENEWAL OF DRIVER'S LICENSES BY MAIL

S.F. 971t

CH. 51

AN ACT relating to the state department of transportation concerning renewal of driver's licenses by mail.

Be It Enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Iowa:

Section 1. Section 321.196, Code 1993, is amended to read as follows: 321.196 EXPIRATION OF LICENSE - RENEWAL -VISION !J!ES.'l'- OR REPORT MAN-

D.\TORY. Except as otherwise provided, a motor vehicle license, other than an instruction permit,

chauffeur's instruction permit, or commercial driver's instruction permit issued under section 321.180, expires, at the option of the applicant, two or four years from the licensee's birthday anniversary occurring in the year of issuance if the licensee is between the ages of seventeen years eleven months and seventy years on the date of issuance of the license. If the licensee is under the age of seventeen years eleven months or age seventy or over the license is effec- tive for a period of two years from the licensee's birthday anniversary occurring in the year of issuance. Except as required in section 321.188, a motor vehicle license is renewable without written examination or penalty within a period of sixty days after its expiration date. A per- son shall not be considered to be driving with an invalid license during a period of sixty days following the license expiration date. However, for a license renewed within the sixty-day period, the date of issuance shall be considered to be the previous birthday anniversary on which it expired. Applicants whose licenses are restricted due to vision or other physical defi- ciencies may be required to renew their licenses every two years. For the purposes of this section the birthday anniversary of a person born on February 29 shall be deemed to occur on March 1. The department in its discretion may authorize the renewal of a valid motor vehi- cle license other than a commercial driver's license upon application without an examination provided that the applicant eithet- satisfactorily passes a vision test as prescribed by the depart- ment! 61" files a vision report in accordance with section 321.186A which shows that the appli- cant's visual acuity level meets or exceeds those required by the department! or ~ eligible for renewal~ mail pursuant to rules adopted ~the department. The department may assess an applicant ! fee of no more than two dollars for administration and mailing expenses for providing for renewal of the applicant's driver's license ~ mail.

Any resident of Iowa holding a valid motor vehicle license who is temporarily absent from the state, or incapacitated, may, at the time for renewal for such license, apply to'the depart- ment for a temporary extension of the license. The department upon receipt of the applica- tion shall, upon a showing of good cause, issue a temporary extension of the motor vehicle license for a period not to exceed six months.
