A lawsuit filed by three farmers is aimed at ending electrical inspections at Iowa farm facilities.
The Carroll County farmers are challenging the state Electrical Examining Board's authority to require inspections and permits for electrical installations on farm property. The lawsuit says farm property is immune from board regulations and those issued the Iowa Department of Public Safety regarding the permits or inspections.
In defending the state, the Iowa Attorney General's Office says the board did not err in determining that electrical installations at farm buildings were regulated commercial applications that weren't exempt.
Court records don't show a trial date.
