Under the legislation, the bureau of labor will be able to survey the 6.0(H) elevators in Iowa to make sure they meet safety standards. The bureau could close down some facilities if the elevators fail lo meet Hie .standards. Addy said he expects to have inspectors view elevators iii cities such as Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, Sioux City, Council Bluffs and Davenport and concentrate on some of the older buildings in those areas.
