An earlier law has been repealed. A law related to reporting requirements, effective through June 30, 2008, had mandated that a council on "chemically exposed infants and children" be created. One of the primary duties of the council included data collection with regard to the extent to which infants born in Iowa were chemically exposed. A "chemically exposed infant or child" was an infant or child who showed evidence of exposure to or the presence of alcohol. Iowa Code, §§ 235C.1, 235C.3. These laws were repealed as of July 1, 2008.
