Strip club oversight bill gets Iowa House approval
DES MOINES (AP) — Iowa cities would have more authority to regulate strip clubs under legislation approved Monday in the state House.
The measure, approved 89-10, would allow local governments such as cities and counties to pass ordinances that prohibit nudity in local businesses. Currently, municipalities can only regulate strip clubs through city zoning laws or sales tax rules that bar alcohol sales by businesses that allow public nudity.
Rep. Julian Garrett, R-Indianola, a strong supporter of the bill, said the legislation would provide local officials with more power to oversee such businesses.
