The IUB's Safety and Engineering Section is responsible for reviewing and processing all petitions for electric transmission line franchises under Iowa Code Chapter 478, Electric Transmission Lines and IUB rules at 199 Iowa Administrative Code chapter 11, Electric Lines and chapter 25, Iowa Electrical Safety Code. A franchise is the authorization of the IUB for the construction, erection, maintenance, and operation of an electric transmission line.
