Hospitals, regulators in battle over rules

From the Des Moines Register

In Iowa today, a state license to run a hospital costs $10. The cost of a state license to open a bait shop is three times that amount.

The state’s $10 hospital license fee has been the same since 1947, when President Harry Truman was in the White House.

The fee is not expected to change anytime soon. The reason, according to state regulators, is because of the unprecedented say that hospital officials have over proposed changes in Iowa’s laws and regulations governing hospitals.
