On January 14, 2021, Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety (Advocates) sent a letter to the Iowa House Agriculture Committee in opposition to House Study Bill (HSB) 4.  The legislation would expand an exemption to the state’s graduated driver licensing (GDL) law for a special minor’s driver’s license to permit 14.5-year-old novice drivers to drive unsupervised up to 50 miles between destinations if they live or work on a farm and would remove a restriction preventing applicants who live within one mile of their school from qualifying.  To read the letter CLICK HERE.
