Home Rule Anniversary - City Toolkit

HomeRuleLogo.jpgIn 1968 the Home Rule Amendment was passed by the citizens of Iowa and constitutionalized local control in the state of Iowa. 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.
