The Deputy preferences are merely preferences. Preferences are not intended to supplement or overrule any Agency Rules published in the Iowa Administrative Code or on the Hearing Assignment Order.   

Due to extenuating circumstances sometimes last minute changes in Deputy hearing assignments are necessary, it is presumed Deputy Commissioners will accommodate preferences listed by a previously assigned Deputy Commissioner.
