The printed edition of the Iowa Code is published for sale each even numbered year. The printed edition of the Iowa Official Register or “Redbook” is published for sale each odd numbered year. Prior to the production and delivery of a new legal publication, its prior edition or version may be made available for sale at a reduced price while supplies last. The decision to reduce the price of a publication is usually made in July. Any reduced price takes effect on the day it is posted on this Internet site. Any price of a publication is reduced according to the following schedule:

a. Iowa Acts, Iowa Court Rules, and Iowa Law Infobase. Once each year.
b. Iowa Code. Twice, once in an odd numbered year and again in an even numbered year.
c. Iowa Official Register (“Redbook”). Once, in an odd numbered year.

A new edition or version of a legal publication, replacing the prior edition or version of that legal publication, is available for sale at the standard price on the date posted on this Internet site during the fall.
