Leave a comment

2018 is HomeRuleLogothe 50th Anniversary of the Home Rule Amendment to the Iowa State Constitution. This transitioned Iowa from a Dillon’s Rule state, where local government powers are derived exclusively from the state legislature, to a Home Rule state where local government powers are derived from the State Constitution.

The League is encouraging each city in Iowa to help celebrate this important milestone. Specifically, the League is asking each city to have a proclamation regarding this anniversary and the significance of Home Rule. Below is more information on this exciting celebration including a sample proclamation. The League would also like a copy of your proclamation sent to mailbox@iowaleague.org.
