Boiler Inspection Bill – Senate Study Bill 3158 Passes out of Committee

Last week, Senate Study Bill 3158 (SSB 3158) passed out of the Senate Commerce Committee after a unanimous vote.  This bill extends the inspection period for unfired pressurized steam vessels from 2 to 4 years and is endorsed by the Iowa Department of Labor’s State Boiler Board.

The bill, now titled Senate File 2280 (SF 2280), has been introduced and is eligible for senate floor debate.  With bill passage, fertilizer plants will achieve increased production thru-put.  Additionally, fertilizer producers will realize significant cost savings without jeopardizing public or worker safety.

AAI supported SSB 3158 and worked with member representatives to secure its passage out of committee.  AAI and our lobbying team will monitor the progression of SF 2280 and keep our members informed of its progress through the legislature.
