Such special election shall not be held within ninety days next preceding any general election)). As an alternate method, the legislative body of the city or town may by resolution submit a proposal to the voters for excluding such a described area from the boundaries of the city or town.

             Promptly after adoption, the text of each ordinance or a summary of the content of each ordinance shall be published at least once in the official newspaper of the city. For purposes of this section, a summary shall mean a brief description which succinctly describes the main points of the ordinance. Publication of the title of an ordinance authorizing the issuance of bonds, notes, or other evidences of indebtedness shall constitute publication of a summary of that ordinance. When the city publishes a summary, the publication shall include a statement that the full text of the ordinance will be mailed upon request.

             An inadvertent mistake or omission in publishing the text or a summary of the content of an ordinance shall not render the ordinance invalid.

             In addition to the requirement that a city publish the text or a summary of the content of each adopted ordinance, every city shall establish a procedure for notifying the public of upcoming hearings and the preliminary agenda for the forthcoming council meeting. Such procedure may include, but not be limited to, written notification to the city's official newspaper, publication of a notice in the official newspaper, posting of upcoming council meeting agendas, or such other processes as the city determines will satisfy the intent of this requirement.


             Sec. 8. RCW 35.23.310 and 1988 c 168 s 2 are each amended to read as follows:

             Promptly after adoption, the text of each ordinance or a summary of the content of each ordinance shall be published at least once in the official newspaper of the city.

             An inadvertent mistake or omission in publishing the text or a summary of the content of an ordinance shall not render the ordinance invalid.

             In addition to the requirement that a city publish the text or a summary of the content of each adopted ordinance, every city shall establish a procedure for notifying the public of upcoming hearings and the preliminary agenda for the forthcoming council meeting.

             A certified copy of any ordinance certified to by the clerk, or a printed copy of any ordinance or compilation printed by authority of the city council and attested by the clerk shall be competent evidence in any court.


             Sec. 9. RCW 35.23.352 and 1993 c 198 s 10 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) Any second or third class city or any town may construct any public works, as defined in RCW 39.04.010, by contract or day labor without calling for bids therefor whenever the estimated cost of the work or improvement, including cost of materials, supplies and equipment will not exceed the sum of thirty thousand dollars if more than one craft or trade is involved with the public works, or twenty thousand dollars if a single craft or trade is involved with the public works or the public works project is street signalization or street lighting. A public works project means a complete project. The restrictions in this subsection do not permit the division of the project into units of work or classes of work to avoid the restriction on work that may be performed by day labor on a single project.

             Whenever the cost of the public work or improvement, including materials, supplies and equipment, will exceed these figures, the same shall be done by contract. All such contracts shall be let at public bidding upon publication of notice calling for sealed bids upon the work. The notice shall be published in the official newspaper, or a newspaper of general circulation most likely to bring responsive bids, at least thirteen days prior to the last date upon which bids will be received. The notice shall generally state the nature of the work to be done that plans and specifications therefor shall then be on file in the city or town hall for public inspections, and require that bids be sealed and filed with the council or commission within the time specified therein. Each bid shall be accompanied by a bid proposal deposit in the form of a cashier's check, postal money order, or surety bond to the council or commission for a sum of not less than five percent of the amount of the bid, and no bid shall be considered unless accompanied by such bid proposal deposit. The council or commission of the city or town shall let the contract to the lowest responsible bidder or shall have power by resolution to reject any or all bids and to make further calls for bids in the same manner as the original call.

             When the contract is let then all bid proposal deposits shall be returned to the bidders except that of the successful bidder which shall be retained until a contract is entered into and a bond to perform the work furnished, with surety satisfactory to the council or commission, in accordance with RCW 39.08.030. If the bidder fails to enter into the contract in accordance with his or her bid and furnish a bond within ten days from the date at which he or she is notified that he or she is the successful bidder, the check or postal money order and the amount thereof shall be forfeited to the council or commission or the council or commission shall recover the amount of the surety bond.

             If no bid is received on the first call the council or commission may readvertise and make a second call, or may enter into a contract without any further call or may purchase the supplies, material or equipment and perform the work or improvement by day labor.

             (2) The allocation of public works projects to be performed by city or town employees shall not be subject to a collective bargaining agreement.

             (3) In lieu of the procedures of subsection (1) of this section, a second or third class city or a town may use ((a)) the small works roster process ((and)) provided in RCW 39.04.155 to award public works contracts with an estimated value of one hundred thousand dollars or less ((as provided in RCW 39.04.155)).

             Whenever possible, the city or town shall invite at least one proposal from a minority or woman contractor who shall otherwise qualify under this section.

             (4) After September 1, 1987, each second class city, third class city, and town shall use the form required by RCW 43.09.205 to account and record costs of public works in excess of five thousand dollars that are not let by contract.

             NEW SECTION. Sec. 14. A new section is added to chapter 35.63 RCW to read as follows:

             No city may enact, enforce, or maintain an ordinance, development regulation, zoning regulation, or official control, policy, or administrative practice which prohibits the use of a residential dwelling, located in an area zoned for residential or commercial use, as a family day-care provider's home facility.

             A city may require that the facility: (1) Comply with all building, fire, safety, health code, and business licensing requirements; (2) conform to lot size, building size, setbacks, and lot coverage standards applicable to the zoning district except if the structure is a legal nonconforming structure; (3) is certified by the state department of licensing as providing a safe passenger loading area; (4) include signage, if any, that conforms to applicable regulations; and (5) limit hours of operations to facilitate neighborhood compatibility, while also providing appropriate opportunity for persons who use family day-care and who work a nonstandard work shift.

             A city may also require that the family day-care provider, before state licensing, require proof of written notification by the provider that the immediately adjoining property owners have been informed of the intent to locate and maintain such a facility. If a dispute arises between neighbors and the family day-care provider over licensing requirements, the licensor may provide a forum to resolve the dispute.

             Nothing in this section shall be construed to prohibit a city from imposing zoning conditions on the establishment and maintenance of a family day-care provider's home in an area zoned for residential or commercial use, so long as such conditions are no more restrictive than conditions imposed on other residential dwellings in the same zone and the establishment of such facilities is not precluded. As used in this section, "family day-care provider" is as defined in RCW 74.15.020.


             Sec. 15. RCW 35A.12.160 and 1988 c 168 s 7 are each amended to read as follows:

             (2) Subsection (1) of this section notwithstanding, whenever any publication is made under this section and the proposed or adopted ordinance contains provisions regarding taxation or penalties or contains legal descriptions of real property, then the sections containing this matter shall be published in full and shall not be summarized.

             (a) Twenty percent appropriated for distribution shall be distributed to cities with a three-year average violent crime rate for each one thousand in population in excess of one hundred fifty percent of the state-wide three-year average violent crime rate for each one thousand in population. The three-year average violent crime rate shall be calculated using the violent crime rates for each of the preceding three years from the annual reports on crime in Washington state as published by the Washington association of sheriffs and police chiefs. Moneys shall be distributed under this subsection (1)(a) ratably based on population as last determined by the office of financial management, but no city may receive more than one dollar per capita. Moneys remaining undistributed under this subsection at the end of each calendar year shall be distributed to the criminal justice training commission to reimburse participating city law enforcement agencies with ten or fewer full-time commissioned patrol officers the cost of temporary replacement of each officer who is enrolled in basic law enforcement training, as provided in RCW 43.101.200.

             (b) Sixteen percent shall be distributed to cities ratably based on population as last determined by the office of financial management, but no city may receive less than one thousand dollars.

             Moneys distributed under this subsection shall be expended exclusively for criminal justice purposes and shall not be used to replace or supplant existing funding. Criminal justice purposes are defined as activities that substantially assist the criminal justice system, which may include circumstances where ancillary benefit to the civil justice system occurs, and which includes domestic violence services such as those provided by domestic violence programs, community advocates, and legal advocates, as defined in RCW 70.123.020. Existing funding for purposes of this subsection is defined as calendar year 1989 actual operating expenditures for criminal justice purposes. Calendar year 1989 actual operating expenditures for criminal justice purposes exclude the following: Expenditures for extraordinary events not likely to reoccur, changes in contract provisions for criminal justice services, beyond the control of the local jurisdiction receiving the services, and major nonrecurring capital expenditures.

             (2) In addition to the distributions under subsection (1) of this section:

             Moneys distributed under this subsection shall be distributed to those cities that submit funding requests under this subsection to the department of community, trade, and economic development based on criteria developed under RCW 82.14.335. Allocation of funds shall be in proportion to the population of qualified jurisdictions, but the distribution to a city shall not exceed the amount of funds requested. Cities shall submit requests for program funding to the department of community, trade, and economic development by November 1 of each year for funding the following year. The department shall certify to the state treasurer the cities eligible for funding under this subsection and the amount of each allocation.

             ((One-half of the moneys distributed under (a) through (d) of this subsection shall be distributed on March 1st and the remaining one-half of the moneys shall be distributed on September 1st)) The moneys deposited in the municipal criminal justice assistance account for distribution under this subsection shall be distributed at the times as distributions are made under RCW 82.44.150. Moneys remaining undistributed under this subsection at the end of each calendar year shall be distributed to the criminal justice training commission to reimburse participating city law enforcement agencies with ten or fewer full-time commissioned patrol officers the cost of temporary replacement of each officer who is enrolled in basic law enforcement training, as provided in RCW 43.101.200.

The director may allow noncomplying use of moneys received under this subsection upon a showing of hardship or other emergent need.

             (3) Notwithstanding other provisions of this section, the distributions to any city that substantially decriminalizes or repeals its criminal code after July 1, 1990, and that does not reimburse the county for costs associated with criminal cases under RCW 3.50.800 or 3.50.805(2), shall be made to the county in which the city is located.


             Sec. 23. RCW 41.16.050 and 1986 c 296 s 3 are each amended to read as follows:

             There is hereby created and established in the treasury of each municipality a fund which shall be known and designated as the firemen's pension fund, which shall consist of: (1) All bequests, fees, gifts, emoluments, or donations given or paid thereto; (2) forty-five percent of all moneys received by the state from taxes on fire insurance premiums; (3) taxes paid pursuant to the provisions of RCW 41.16.060; (4) interest on the investments of the fund; and (5) contributions by ((firemen)) fire fighters as provided for herein. The moneys received from the tax on fire insurance premiums under the provisions of this chapter shall be distributed in the proportion that the number of paid ((firemen)) fire fighters in the city, town, or fire protection district bears to the total number of paid ((firemen)) fire fighters throughout the state to be ascertained in the following manner: The secretary of the firemen's pension board of each city, town, and fire protection district now or hereafter coming under the provisions of this chapter shall within thirty days after June 7, 1961, and on or before the fifteenth day of January thereafter, certify to the state treasurer the number of paid ((firemen)) fire fighters in the fire department in such city, town, or fire protection district. For any city or town annexed by a fire protection district at any time before, on, or after the effective date of this section, the city or town shall continue to certify to the state treasurer the number of paid fire fighters in the city or town fire department immediately before annexation until all obligations against the firemen's pension fund in the city or town have been satisfied. For the purposes of the calculation in this section, the state treasurer shall subtract the number certified by the annexed city or town from the number of paid fire fighters certified by an annexing fire protection district. The state treasurer shall on or before the first day of June of each year deliver to the treasurer of each city, town, and fire protection district coming under the provisions of this chapter his or her warrant, payable to each city, town, or fire protection district for the amount due such city, town or fire protection district ascertained as herein provided and the treasurer of each such city, town, or fire protection district shall place the amount thereof to the credit of the firemen's pension fund of such city, town, or fire protection district.

E2SSB 5468                                                                                                                                Date: March 9, 1994


Includes "new item": Yes


Mr. Speaker:

Mr. President:


             We of your Conference Committee, to whom was referred ENGROSSED SECOND SUBSTITUTE SENATE BILL NO. 5468, imposing requirements for businesses that receive public assistance, have had the same under consideration and we recommend that all previous amendments not be adopted and the attached amendment (5468-S2.E AMC CONF H4553.1) be adopted:


             Strike everything after the enacting clause and insert the following:


             "NEW SECTION. Sec. 1. The legislature finds that when public funds are used to support private enterprise, the public may gain through the creation of new jobs, the diversification of the economy, or higher quality jobs for existing workers. The legislature further finds that such returns on public investments are not automatic and that tax-based incentives, in particular, may result in a greater tax burden on businesses and individuals that are not eligible for the public support. It is the purpose of this chapter to collect information sufficient to allow the legislature and the executive branch to make informed decisions about the merits of existing tax-based incentives and loan programs intended to encourage economic development in the state.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 2. (1) The department of revenue and the department of community, trade, and economic development shall gather such base-line data as is necessary to measure the effect on businesses of any of the following benefits: (a) A loan of one hundred thousand dollars or more from the development loan fund; (b) fifty thousand dollars or more in tax credits under chapter 82.62 RCW; or (c) a deferral of one hundred thousand dollars or more in taxes under chapter 82.60 or 82.61 RCW. The departments shall measure the effect of the programs on job creation, company growth, the introduction of new products, the diversification of the state's economy, growth in investments, the movement of firms or the consolidation of firms' operation into the state, and such other factors as the departments select.

             (2) The departments shall also measure whether the businesses receiving the benefits: (a) Have complied with federal and state requirements for affirmative action in hiring and promotion of their employees; (b) have provided an average wage that is above the average wage paid by firms located in the same county that share the same two-digit standard industrial code; (c) have provided basic health coverage at a level at least equivalent to basic health coverage under chapter 70.47 RCW; (d) have complied with all applicable federal and state environmental and employment laws and regulations; and (e) have complied with the requirements of all federal and state plant closure laws if reducing operations at a facility or relocating a facility.

             (3) Businesses applying for one of the benefits specified in subsection (1) of this section shall submit employment impact estimates to the departments specifying the number and types of jobs, with wage rates and benefits for those jobs, that the business submitting the application expects to be eliminated, created, or retained on the project site and on other employment sites of the business in Washington as a result of the project that is the subject of the application.

             (4) The departments shall specify that upon a certain date or dates, the businesses that receive one of the benefits specified in subsection (1) of this section shall submit to the department an employment impact statement stating the net number and types of jobs eliminated, created, or retained, with the wage rates and benefits for those jobs, by the business in Washington as a result of the benefit received.

             (5) The information collected on individual businesses under this section is not subject to public disclosure.

             (6) The departments shall report their findings to the executive-legislative committee on economic development policy, or the appropriate legislative committees, if the executive-legislative committee on economic development policy is not created by statute, by September 1, 1995. The report shall provide aggregate information on businesses that share the same two-digit standard industrial code.

             (6) The executive-legislative committee on economic development policy shall evaluate the departments' report and make recommendations to the governor and the legislature on the continuation of the benefit programs and any conditions under which they should operate if they are to continue.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 3. Sections 1 and 2 of this act shall constitute a new chapter in Title 43 RCW.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 4. This act is necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health, or safety, or support of the state government and its existing public institutions, and shall take effect immediately."


             On page 1, line 2 of the title, after "assistance;" strike the remainder of the title and insert "adding a new chapter to Title 43 RCW; and declaring an emergency."

and that the bill do pass as recommended by the Conference Committee.

             Signed by Senators Skratek, Sheldon; Representatives Wineberry, Conway.


MOTION


             Representative Wineberry moved that the House adopt the Report of the Conference Committee on Engrossed Second Substitute Senate Bill No. 5468 and pass the bill as recommended by the Conference Committee.


             Representatives Finkbeiner, Kremen and Wineberry spoke in favor of the motion and Representatives Sheldon, Schoesler and Chandler spoke against it.


             Representative Sheldon again spoke against the motion.


POINT OF INQUIRY


             Representative Finkbeiner yielded to a question by Representative Dyer.


             Representative Dyer: Well, I'm trying to decide what to do on this and I noticed in the reports of the Committee, that hi-tech industries receiving tax credit deferrals are excluded from the study. I was wondering if you could help explain that before we moved to final passage.


             Representative Finkbeiner: That is correct. As I stated earlier, so far up to now, the hi-tech area has not received any support of this kind from the government, so there's no need to study the past. In the future, and in the hi-tech tax credit bill that is going to be before us soon, there are two studies included in that bill on this issue, so as I've said before we're already putting two studies in on this exact issue in that bill and we don't need a third.


             The Speaker (Representative R. Meyers presiding) divided the House. The results of the division was: 57-YEAS; 41-NAYS. The motion was carried.

Marty Brown, Secretary


             With the consent of the House, the House resumed consideration of Engrossed Senate Bill No. 6025.


SPEAKER'S RULING


             Mr. Speaker: The Speaker has examined the engrossed Senate Bill as it came to the House, the bill as it passed the House, and the provisions of the conference committee report relating to zoning of family day care homes in cities. As it came to the House, Engrossed Senate Bill No. 6025 "an act relating to cities and towns" included a wide array of provisions including changes to deannexation procedures and elections, authority of cities to lease property, timelines for review of payments of claims and warrants, and distribution of local criminal justice funding. As the bill passed the House, a variety of other provisions relating to cities and towns was added.

             Section 14 of the Conference Committee Report adds a new section to RCW Title 35, cities and towns. The Section limits the authority of cities to restrict zoning of family day care homes. The Speaker finds that the scope of the bill has been very broad in encompassing numerous miscellaneous provisions relating to cities and towns, and therefore that the Conference Committee Report is within the scope and object of the bill. The point of order is not well taken.


             The Speaker stated the question before the House to be the motion to adopt the Report of Conference Committee on House Bill No. 6025 and pass the bill as recommended by the Conference Committee.


             Representatives H. Myers and Edmondson spoke in favor of the motion. The motion was carried.

Includes "NEW ITEM": YES


             Coordinating watershed-based natural resource planning.


Mr. President:

Mr. Speaker:


             We of your CONFERENCE COMMITTEE, to whom was referred ENGROSSED SUBSTITUTE HOUSE BILL NO. 2741, Watershed-based nat res plan, have had the same under consideration and we recommend that:

 

All previous amendments not be adopted, and the striking amendment by the Conference Committee (See attached 2741-S.E AMC CONF S5964.1) be adopted:


             Strike everything after the enacting clause and insert the following:


             "NEW SECTION. Sec. 1. The legislature finds that:

             (1) Long-term sustainable and economically productive watersheds are necessary for the well-being of the citizens of the state of Washington. The legislature also finds that there is a need to develop consensus regarding the beneficial economic and natural values which watersheds provide. The legislature further finds that watershed units are the appropriate geographic planning and implementation element for addressing the health and economic productivity of the state's natural resources;

             (2) The ongoing efforts of public agencies and private parties in watershed planning and its implementation are having a far-reaching effect on lands and resources, and continued integrated and coordinated planning and its implementation is needed to achieve the most effective and efficient use of public funds;

             (3) In times of decreasing revenues and increasing demands, it is critically important to ensure the efficient and effective use of scarce financial resources by avoiding overlap and duplication of effort among watershed-based planning and implementation efforts;

             (4) The existing efforts implementing watershed-based planning are often complicated by multiple land ownerships, different management missions and objectives, different ways of collecting information, and legal constraints; and

             (5) Many different entities, including federal, state, and local governments, tribes, private landowners, and other groups are conducting planning, research, implementation, and monitoring programs relating to watersheds. To the greatest extent possible, coordinated planning and its implementation should be based on these efforts.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 2. The purpose of this act and the intent of the legislature is:

             (1) That sections 3 through 5 of this act do not grant any new rule-making authority nor direct any substantive changes to existing management policies established pursuant to law;

             (2) To provide mechanisms to make comprehensive watershed planning and implementation policy recommendations for consideration by the legislature;

             (3) To encourage coordination and integration of existing state agency and private party watershed planning and implementation; and

             (4) To develop a set of measurable objectives against which the effectiveness of watershed programs may be assessed.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 3. (1) The watershed coordinating council is hereby established. The council shall be comprised of the commissioner of public lands or the commissioner's designee and the director or the director's designee or the secretary or the secretary's designee of the following agencies: The department of transportation, the department of agriculture, the department of ecology, the department of fish and wildlife, the department of health, the department of community, trade, and economic development, the interagency committee for outdoor recreation, the Puget Sound water quality authority, and the conservation commission. The members of the council shall coordinate their watershed planning and implementation activities. Meetings of the council shall be subject to the provisions of the open public meetings act.

             (2) In conjunction with the council's efforts, the commissioner of public lands shall continue to coordinate the department of natural resources' landscape planning and implementation activities with landowners and other interested parties.

             (3) The council shall coordinate its activities set forth in section 4 of this act with federal, tribal, and local governments.

             (4) The directors of the departments of agriculture, fish and wildlife, and ecology and the commissioner of public lands shall organize meetings of the council and shall cooperatively ensure a reasonable level of staff support for the council and for the task force established in section 5 of this act.

             (5) The watershed coordinating council shall expire on June 30, 1997.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 4. By December 15, 1994, the watershed coordinating council shall provide to the legislature a summary of all state agency watershed programs, plans, and ongoing activities on a watershed-by-watershed basis. The council shall also prepare a report of its recommendations for consideration by the legislature. The report of recommendations shall include:

             (1) A recommended definition of the geographical unit for watershed planning and implementation processes, taking into account the relationships between smaller watersheds within larger watersheds and the relationships between adjacent watersheds;

             (2) Recommendations for the establishment of common protocols governing data collection and analysis and for a central depository of information which could be used by all state agencies involved in watershed planning and implementation processes;

             (3) Identification of data available from all existing sources regarding the condition of the state's watersheds;

             (4) Identification of any barriers to state agency cooperation in watershed planning and implementation, and recommendations to overcome such barriers;

             (5) Recommendations for minimizing duplication, segmentation, and overlap, and identification of proposals for improving efficiency in watershed planning and implementation; and

             (6) Recommendations for new sources of funding and reallocation of existing state funding sources for watershed planning and implementation.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 5. (1) The legislature establishes the watershed policy task force to make recommendations on policies for the legislature to consider. The task force shall be established by May 1, 1994, and shall complete its tasks and report to the legislature by December 1, 1995. The task force shall expire on June 30, 1996.

             (2) The watershed policy task force shall complete the following tasks:

             (a) The development of recommendations for goals and measurable objectives for watersheds in the state of Washington. Such goals and measurable objectives shall recognize the unique characteristics and circumstances of each watershed. The goals and measurable objectives recommended shall address at least the following values inherent in watersheds: Fish and wildlife, water, beneficial economic uses of natural resources including timber and fish harvest and agricultural use, wetlands protection, employment, recreation, and educational opportunities;

             (b) The identification of proposed strategies for establishing and funding locally or regionally based watershed planning and implementation activities which would help achieve the goals and measurable objectives proposed for adoption by the legislature;

             (c) Identification of barriers to cooperation and possible incentives to encourage local governments, tribal governments, private landowners, and citizen participation in watershed planning and implementation;

             (d) Recommendations for legislative policy changes to integrate state watershed planning and its implementation with land use planning and regulation responsibilities of local governments under the growth management act and other relevant acts; and

             (e) Recommendations for coordination with student and citizen watershed protection efforts.

             (3) Members may be appointed by May 1, 1994, to the task force as follows:

             (a) The watershed coordinating council shall appoint four of its members to the task force;

             (b) The speaker of the house of representatives shall appoint two members to the task force, one from the majority party and one from the minority party;

             (c) The president of the senate shall appoint two members to the task force, one from the majority party and one from the minority party; and

             (d) The governor, the speaker of the house of representatives, and the president of the senate shall jointly appoint twelve additional members to the task force. The members so appointed shall be selected to represent each of the following interests: Small private forest landowners, large private forest landowners, agricultural interests east of the crest of the Cascade mountains, agricultural interests west of the crest of the Cascade mountains, commercial fishing, recreational fishing, labor interests from a natural resource related union, federally recognized Indian tribes, the environmental community (two members), cities, and counties. The task force shall encourage a representative from federal land resource management agencies to attend and participate in task force meetings.

             (4) For the purposes of this section, "measurable objective" means a results-oriented objective against which general state goals and specific individual watershed goals can be evaluated as to current and continuing progress in meeting such goals."


             On page 1, line 2 of the title, after "planning;" strike the remainder of the title and insert "and creating new sections."

and that the bill do pass as recommended by the Conference Committee.

MESSAGE FROM THE SENATE


March 9, 1994


Mr. Speaker:


             Under Suspension of Rules, the Senate has adopted the report of the Conference Committee to SUBSTITUTE HOUSE BILL NO. 1743, and passed the bill as recommended by the Conference Committee,

and the same is herewith transmitted.


Brad Hendrickson, Deputy Secretary


REPORT OF CONFERENCE COMMITTEE


SHB 1743                                                                                                                                               March 9, 1994


Includes "NEW ITEM": YES


             Establishing a pilot multimedia program for pollution prevention.


Mr. President:

Mr. Speaker:


             We of your CONFERENCE COMMITTEE, to whom was referred SUBSTITUTE HOUSE BILL NO. 1743, Pollution prevention plans, have had the same under consideration and we recommend that:

 

All previous amendments not be adopted, and the striking amendment by the Conference Committee (See attached 1743-S AMC CONF S5954.2) be adopted:


             Strike everything after the enacting clause and insert the following:


             "NEW SECTION. Sec. 1. A new section is added to chapter 70.95C RCW to read as follows:

             (1) Not later than January 1, 1995, the department shall designate an industry type and up to ten individual facilities within that industry type to be the focus of a pilot multimedia program. The program shall be designed to coordinate department actions related to environmental permits, plans, approvals, certificates, registrations, technical assistance, and inspections. The program shall also investigate the feasibility of issuing facility-wide permits. The director shall determine the industry type and facilities based on:

             (a) A review of at least three industry types; and

             (b) Criteria which shall include at least the following factors:

             (i) The potential for the industry to serve as a state-wide model for multimedia environmental programs including pollution prevention;

             (ii) Whether the industry type is subject to regulatory requirements relating to at least two of the following subject areas: Air quality, water quality, or hazardous waste management;

             (iii) The existence within the industry type of a range of business sizes; and

             (iv) Voluntary participation in the program.

             (2) Not later than January 1, 1997, the department shall submit to the governor and the appropriate standing committees of the legislature:

             (a) A report evaluating the pilot multimedia program. The report shall consider the program's effect on the efficiency and effectiveness of program delivery and shall evaluate the feasibility of expanding the program to other industry types; and

             (b) A report analyzing the feasibility of a facility-wide permit program.

             (3) In developing the program, the department shall consult with and seek the cooperation of the environmental protection agency.

             (4) For purposes of this section, "facility-wide permit" means a single multimedia permit issued by the department to the owner or operator of a facility incorporating the permits and any other relevant department approvals previously issued to the owner or operator or currently required by the department.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 2. The purpose of this section and section 3 of this act is to establish a pilot program to encourage environmental permit program efficiency and pollution prevention through increased private sector participation in the preparation of wastewater discharge permits currently administered by the department of ecology.

             The legislature recognizes that pollution prevention can often be accomplished through cooperative partnerships between government and industry and through voluntary changes in industrial production methods. By using expertise available in the private sector, the pilot program provided for in this section and section 3 of this act is intended to reduce the backlog of expired wastewater discharge permits in order to better protect the water quality of the state.

             The legislature intends that the pilot program be implemented through the use of technical assistance and administrative guidelines; it is not the intent of this act to authorize additional rule making. The legislature also intends that the pilot program be implemented without causing a reduction in the number of state employees involved in administration of the wastewater discharge permit program.

             The provisions in this act do not affect the authority of the department to bring enforcement actions, nor do they affect provisions in existing law for public participation and rights of appeal of permit decisions.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 3. A new section is added to chapter 90.48 RCW to read as follows:

             (1) For the period beginning July 1, 1994, and ending July 1, 1996, the department shall conduct a pilot program to test the feasibility and effectiveness of allowing certain industries that require a permit, renewal, or modification under RCW 90.48.260 or 90.48.160 to submit an application in the form of a draft permit and fact sheet.

             (2) Within thirty days of the effective date of this section, the department shall request approval from the federal environmental protection agency to implement the pilot program as provided in this section. If the environmental protection agency grants approval, the department shall:

             (a) Establish criteria for a variety of types of applicants that are eligible to participate. Such criteria shall include:

             (i) Consideration of the applicant's compliance history; and

             (ii) The potential for the industry to serve as a model for increased private sector participation in permit preparation;

             (b) Develop guidelines specifying the elements of a complete draft permit and fact sheet;

             (c) Make available a list of approved contractors with whom applicants may contract for draft permit preparation;

             (d) Document cost and time savings that may or may not result from draft permit preparation by applicants and reflect such savings in the next revision of permit fees for such applicants. Any reduction in fees for permittees participating in the pilot program shall not cause an increase in fees for other permittees; and

             (e) Limit the number of facilities that will be eligible to participate in the pilot program to ten.

             (3) Nothing in this section affects the requirements for public participation and right of appeal under RCW 90.48.260 and chapter 43.21B RCW. The department shall retain full authority under this chapter to approve, modify, or disapprove any draft permit or fact sheet submitted under this section.

             (4) By July 1, 1995, the department shall provide an interim report to the appropriate standing committees of the legislature evaluating the effectiveness of the pilot program authorized under this section. A final report shall be submitted by December 1, 1996.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 4. (1) The legislature finds that utilization of private sector expertise may also benefit other administrative functions within the department of ecology's wastewater discharge permit program. The legislature therefore directs the department to conduct a study, in cooperation with the federal environmental protection agency, to evaluate the feasibility of utilizing private sector expertise for permit compliance assurance activities. By December 1, 1994, the department shall submit a report to the appropriate standing committees of the legislature that includes the following elements:

             (a) A review of options for utilizing the private sector in the performance of annual compliance inspections of facilities covered under wastewater discharge permits. Such options shall include a review of the feasibility of: (i) The department contracting for compliance inspection services; (ii) the permittee contracting for compliance inspection services; and (iii) any other options identified by the department;

             (b) An analysis of whether the options identified in (a) of this subsection are permissible under the federal clean water act and implementing regulations;

             (c) An evaluation of whether cost savings or other benefits would result from utilizing private sector resources;

             (d) An evaluation of whether staffing reductions would result from such privatization and, if so, what plan should be followed in order to transfer these employees to other appropriate classifications within the water quality program;

             (e) An analysis of changes that may be necessary in the wastewater discharge permit fee schedule to accomplish such privatization; and

             (f) Identification of any other alternative compliance strategies, in addition to privatization, that will improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the wastewater discharge permit program, and thereby improve the water quality of the state.

             (2) The department shall seek recommendations from the federal environmental protection agency as to what federal waivers or approvals, if any, may be required to implement the options identified in subsection (1)(a) of this section.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 5. If any part of this act is found to be in conflict with federal requirements, the conflicting part of this act is inoperative solely to the extent of the conflict and with respect to the agencies directly affected, and this finding does not affect the operation of the remainder of this act in its application to the agencies concerned."


             On page 1, line 1 of the title, after "prevention;" strike the remainder of the title and insert "adding a new section to chapter 70.95C RCW; adding a new section to chapter 90.48 RCW; and creating new sections."

and that the bill do pass as recommended by the Conference Committee.

             Signed by Senators Talmadge, Fraser; Representatives Rust, Fleming, Horn.

             (c) Sign three-year counseling agreements with its clients that provide for termination if adequate funding for the Pacific Northwest export assistance project is not provided in future appropriations. Counseling agreements shall not be renewed unless there are compelling reasons to do so, and under no circumstances shall they be renewed for more than two additional years. A counseling agreement may not be renewed more than once. The counseling agreements shall have mutual performance clauses, that if not met, will be grounds for releasing each party, without penalty, from the provisions of the agreement. Clients shall be immediately released from a counseling agreement with the Pacific Northwest export assistance project, without penalty, if a client wishes to switch to a private export management service and produces a valid contract signed with a private export management service, or if the president of the small business export finance assistance center determines there are compelling reasons to release a client from the provisions of the counseling agreement;

             (d) May contract with private or public international trade education services to provide Pacific Northwest export assistance project clients with training in international business.

             (e) May contract with the Washington state international trade fair to provide services for Pacific Northwest export assistance project clients to participate in one trade show annually. The president and board of directors shall decide the amount of funding allocated for trade fair assistance based on the availability of resources in the operating budget of the Pacific Northwest export assistance project;

             (f) Provide biennial assessments of its performance. Project personnel shall work with the department of revenue and employment security department to confidentially track the performance of the project's clients in increasing tax revenues to the state, increasing gross sales revenues and volume of products destined to foreign clients, and in creating new jobs for Washington citizens. A biennial report shall be prepared for the governor and legislature to assess the costs and benefits to the state from creating the project. The president of the small business export finance assistance center shall design an appropriate methodology for biennial assessments in consultation with the director of community, trade, and economic development and the director of the Washington state department of agriculture. The department of revenue and the employment security department shall provide data necessary to complete this biennial evaluation, if the data being requested is available from existing data bases. Client-specific information generated from the files of the department of revenue and the employment security department for the purposes of this evaluation shall be kept strictly confidential by each department and the small business export finance assistance center;

             (g) Take whatever action may be necessary to accomplish the purposes set forth in RCW 43.210.070 and 43.210.100 through 43.210.120; and

             (h) Limit its assistance to promoting the exportation of value-added manufactured goods. The project shall not provide counseling or assistance, under any circumstances, for the importation of foreign made goods into the United States.

             (2) The Pacific Northwest export assistance project shall not, under any circumstances, assume ownership or take title to the goods of its clients.

             (3) The Pacific Northwest export assistance project may not use any Washington state funds which come from the public treasury of the state of Washington to make loans or to make any payment under a loan guarantee agreement. Under no circumstances may the center use any funds received under RCW 43.210.050 to make or assist in making any loan or to pay or assist in paying any amount under a loan guarantee agreement. Debts of the center shall be center debts only and may be satisfied only from the resources of the center. The state of Washington shall not in any way be liable for such debts.

             (4) The Pacific Northwest export assistance project shall make every effort to seek nonstate funds to supplement its operations. The small business export finance assistance center and the project are authorized to charge reasonable fees for services and products provided and to expend the proceeds for the particular purposes for which they were collected.

             (5) The small business export finance assistance center and its Pacific Northwest export assistance project shall take whatever steps are necessary to provide its services, if requested, to the states of Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Alaska, and the Canadian provinces of British Columbia and Alberta. Interstate services shall not be provided by the Pacific Northwest export assistance project during its first biennium of operation. The provision of services may be temporary and subject to the payment of fees, or each state may request permanent services contingent upon a level of permanent funding adequate for services provided. Temporary services and fees may be negotiated by the small business export finance assistance center's president subject to approval of the board of directors. The president of the small business export finance assistance center may enter into negotiations with neighboring states to contract for delivery of the project's services. Final contracts for providing the project's counseling and services outside of the state of Washington on a permanent basis shall be subject to approval of the governor, appropriate legislative oversight committees, and the small business export finance assistance center's board of directors.

             (6) The small business export finance assistance center may receive such gifts, grants, and endowments from public or private sources as may be made from time to time, in trust or otherwise, for the use and benefit of the purposes of the Pacific Northwest export assistance project and expend the same or any income therefrom according to the terms of the gifts, grants, or endowments.

             (7) The president of the small business export finance assistance center, in consultation with the board of directors, may use the following formula in determining the number of clients that can be reasonably served by the Pacific Northwest export assistance project relative to its appropriation. Divide the amount appropriated for administration of the Pacific Northwest export assistance project by the marginal cost of adding each additional Pacific Northwest export assistance project client. For the purposes of this calculation, and only for the first biennium of operation, the biennial marginal cost of adding each additional Pacific Northwest export assistance project client shall be fifty-seven thousand ninety-five dollars. The biennial marginal cost of adding each additional client after the first biennium of operation shall be established from the actual operating experience of the Pacific Northwest export assistance project.

             (((8) All receipts from the Pacific Northwest export assistance project shall be deposited into the general fund. However, during the 1993-95 fiscal biennium, the receipts of the project shall be deposited into the small business export finance assistance center fund under RCW 43.210.070.))

             (e) That a vehicle will be sold upon a monthly payment of a certain amount, without including in the statement the number of payments of that same amount which are required to liquidate the unpaid purchase price.

             (2) To incorporate within the terms of any purchase and sale agreement any statement or representation with regard to the sale or financing of a vehicle which is false, deceptive, or misleading, including but not limited to terms that include as an added cost to the selling price of a vehicle an amount for licensing or transfer of title of that vehicle which is not actually due to the state, unless such amount has in fact been paid by the dealer prior to such sale.

             (3) To set up, promote, or aid in the promotion of a plan by which vehicles are to be sold to a person for a consideration and upon further consideration that the purchaser agrees to secure one or more persons to participate in the plan by respectively making a similar purchase and in turn agreeing to secure one or more persons likewise to join in said plan, each purchaser being given the right to secure money, credits, goods, or something of value, depending upon the number of persons joining the plan.

             (4) To commit, allow, or ratify any act of "bushing" which is defined as follows: Taking from a prospective buyer of a vehicle a written order or offer to purchase, or a contract document signed by the buyer, which:

             (a) Is subject to the dealer's, or his or her authorized representative's future acceptance, and the dealer fails or refuses within forty-eight hours, exclusive of Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, and prior to any further negotiations with said buyer, to deliver to the buyer either the dealer's signed acceptance or all copies of the order, offer, or contract document together with any initial payment or security made or given by the buyer, including but not limited to money, check, promissory note, vehicle keys, a trade-in, or certificate of title to a trade-in; or

             (a) Coerce or attempt to coerce any vehicle dealer to order or accept delivery of any vehicle or vehicles, parts or accessories, or any other commodities which have not been voluntarily ordered by the vehicle dealer: PROVIDED, That recommendation, endorsement, exposition, persuasion, urging, or argument are not deemed to constitute coercion;

Good faith is defined as the duty of each party to any franchise to act in a fair and equitable manner towards each other, so as to guarantee one party freedom from coercion, intimidation, or threats of coercion or intimidation from the other party: PROVIDED, That recommendation, endorsement, exposition, persuasion, urging, or argument are not deemed to constitute a lack of good faith.

             (e) Refuse to deliver any vehicle publicly advertised for immediate delivery to any duly licensed vehicle dealer having a franchise or contractual agreement for the retail sale of new and unused vehicles sold or distributed by such manufacturer within sixty days after such dealer's order has been received in writing unless caused by inability to deliver because of shortage or curtailment of material, labor, transportation, or utility services, or by any labor or production difficulty, or by any cause beyond the reasonable control of the manufacturer;

             (f) To provide under the terms of any warranty that a purchaser of any new or unused vehicle that has been sold, distributed for sale, or transferred into this state for resale by the vehicle manufacturer may only make any warranty claim on any item included as an integral part of the vehicle against the manufacturer of that item.

             Nothing in this section may be construed to impair the obligations of a contract or to prevent a manufacturer, distributor, representative, or any other person, whether or not licensed under this chapter, from requiring performance of a written contract entered into with any licensee hereunder, nor does the requirement of such performance constitute a violation of any of the provisions of this section if any such contract or the terms thereof requiring performance, have been freely entered into and executed between the contracting parties. This paragraph and subsection (((11)(b))) (14)(b) of this section do not apply to new motor vehicle manufacturers governed by chapter 46.96 RCW.

SENATE AMENDMENTS TO HOUSE BILL


March 9, 1994


Mr. Speaker:


             The Senate has passed ENGROSSED SECOND SUBSTITUTE HOUSE BILL NO. 2798 with the following amendment:


             Strike everything after the enacting clause and insert the following:


             "NEW SECTION. Sec. 1. The legislature finds that lengthy stays on welfare, lack of access to vocational education and training, the inadequate emphasis on employment by the social welfare system, and teen pregnancy are obstacles to achieving economic independence. Therefore, the legislature intends that:

             (1) Income and employment assistance programs emphasize the temporary nature of welfare and set goals of responsibility, work, and independence;

             (2) State institutions take an active role in preventing pregnancy in young teens;

             (3) Family planning assistance be readily available to welfare recipients;

             (4) Support enforcement be more effective and the level of responsibility of noncustodial parents be significantly increased; and

             (5) Job search, job skills training, and vocational education resources are to be used in the most cost-effective manner possible.


PART I. EMPHASIZING WORK AND FAMILY PLANNING IN PUBLIC ASSISTANCE


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 2. A new section is added to chapter 74.12 RCW to read as follows:

             The department shall train financial services and social work staff who provide direct service to recipients of aid to families with dependent children to:

             (1) Effectively communicate the transitional nature of aid to families with dependent children and the expectation that recipients will enter employment;

             (2) Actively refer clients to the job opportunities and basic skills program;

             (3) Provide social services needed to overcome obstacles to employability; and

             (4) Provide family planning information and assistance, including alternatives to abortion, which shall be conducted in consultation with the department of health.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 3. A new section is added to chapter 74.12 RCW to read as follows:

             At time of application or reassessment under this chapter the department shall offer or contract for family planning information and assistance, including alternatives to abortion, and any other available locally based teen pregnancy prevention programs, to prospective and current recipients of aid to families with dependent children.


PART II. TEEN PREGNANCY PREVENTION


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 4. For the 1994-95 school year, the office of the superintendent of public instruction shall administer a program that provides grants to school districts for media campaigns promoting sexual abstinence and addressing the importance of delaying sexual activity, pregnancy, and childbearing until individuals are ready to nurture and support their children. The messages shall be distributed in the school and community where produced. Grants to the school districts shall be for projects that are substantially designed and produced by students. The grants shall require a local private sector match equal to the state grant, which may include in-kind contribution of technical or other assistance from consultants or firms involved in public relations, advertising, broadcasting, and graphics or video production or other related fields. For purposes of evaluating the impact of the campaigns, applicants shall estimate student pregnancy and birth rates over the prior three to five years.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 5. A new section is added to chapter 70.190 RCW to read as follows:

             The community network's plan may include funding for a student designed media and community campaign promoting sexual abstinence and addressing the importance of delaying sexual activity and pregnancy or male parenting until individuals are ready to nurture and support their children. Under the campaign, which shall be substantially designed and produced by students, the same messages shall be distributed in schools, through the media, and in the community where the campaign is targeted. The campaign shall require local private sector matching funds equal to state funds. Local private sector funds may include in-kind contributions of technical or other assistance from consultants or firms involved in public relations, advertising, broadcasting, and graphics or video production or other related fields. The campaign shall be evaluated using the outcomes required of community networks under this chapter, in particular reductions in the number or rate of teen pregnancies and teen male parentage over a three to five year period.


PART III. REFOCUSING JOBS


             Sec. 6. RCW 74.25.010 and 1991 c 126 s 5 are each amended to read as follows:

             The legislature establishes as state policy the goal of economic self-sufficiency for employable recipients of public assistance, through employment, training, and education. In furtherance of this policy, the legislature intends to comply with the requirements of the federal social security act, as amended, by creating a job opportunities and basic skills training program for applicants and recipients of aid to families with dependent children. The purpose of this program is to provide recipients of aid to families with dependent children the opportunity to obtain ((a full range of necessary)) appropriate education, training, skills, and supportive services, including child care, consistent with their needs, that will help them enter or reenter gainful employment, thereby avoiding long-term welfare dependence and achieving economic self-sufficiency. The program shall be operated by the department of social and health services in conformance with federal law and consistent with the following legislative findings:

             (1) The legislature finds that the well-being of children depends not only on meeting their material needs, but also on the ability of parents to become economically self-sufficient. The job opportunities and basic skills training program is specifically directed at increasing the labor force participation and household earnings of aid to families with dependent children recipients, through the removal of barriers preventing them from achieving self-sufficiency. These barriers include, but are not limited to, the lack of recent work experience, supportive services such as affordable and reliable child care, adequate transportation, appropriate counseling, and necessary job-related tools, equipment, books, clothing, and supplies, the absence of basic literacy skills, the lack of educational attainment sufficient to meet labor market demands for career employees, and the nonavailability of useful labor market assessments.

             (2) The legislature also recognizes that aid to families with dependent children recipients must be acknowledged as active participants in self-sufficiency planning under the program. The legislature finds that the department of social and health services should communicate concepts of the importance of work and how performance and effort directly affect future career and educational opportunities and economic well-being, as well as personal empowerment, self-motivation, and self-esteem to program participants. The legislature further recognizes that informed choice is consistent with individual responsibility, and that parents should be given a range of options for available child care while participating in the program.

             (3) The legislature finds that current work experience is one of the most important factors influencing an individual's ability to work toward financial stability and an adequate standard of living in the long term, and that work experience should be the most important component of the program.

             (4) The legislature finds that education, including, but not limited to, literacy, high school equivalency, vocational, secondary, and postsecondary, is one of the most important tools an individual needs to achieve full independence, and that this should be an important component of the program.

             (((4))) (5) The legislature further finds that the objectives of this program are to assure that aid to families with dependent children recipients gain experience in the labor force and thereby enhance their long-term ability to achieve financial stability and an adequate standard of living at wages that will meet family needs.


             Sec. 7. RCW 74.25.020 and 1993 c 312 s 7 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) The department of social and health services is authorized to contract with public and private employment and training agencies and other public service entities to provide services prescribed or allowed under the federal social security act, as amended, to carry out the purposes of the jobs training program. In contracting for job placement, job search, and other job opportunities and basic skills services, the department is encouraged to structure payments to the contractor on a performance basis. The department of social and health services has sole authority and responsibility to carry out the job opportunities and basic skills training program. No contracting entity shall have the authority to review, change, or disapprove any administrative decision, or otherwise substitute its judgment for that of the department of social and health services as to the application of policies and rules adopted by the department of social and health services. The department shall maximize the federal matching funds available for the job opportunities and basic skills program by aggressively seeking private and public funds as match for federal funds.

             (2) To the extent feasible under federal law, the department of social and health services and all entities contracting with it shall ((give first priority of service to individuals volunteering for program participation)) require nonexempt parents to actively participate in the JOBS program, with an emphasis on job readiness activities and vocational education. Social services shall be offered to participants in accordance with federal law. The department shall adopt appropriate sanctions to ensure compliance with the requirement and policies of this chapter.

             (3) To the extent feasible under federal law, the department of social and health services and all entities contracting with it shall ensure that long-term recipients of aid to families with dependent children or those who are potentially long-term recipients as identified in federal job opportunities and basic skills (JOBS) target populations shall receive first priority for JOBS services. Federal JOBS targets are: (a) Applicants for assistance who have received such aid for thirty-six of the preceding sixty months; (b) recipients who have received assistance for thirty-six of the preceding sixty months; (c) custodial parents under the age of twenty-four who have not completed high school or its equivalent; (d) custodial parents under the age of twenty-four with little or no recent work experience; and (e) members of families in which the youngest child is within two years of being ineligible for assistance because of age.

             (4) The department shall prioritize JOBS service delivery according to the categories within the existing federal target groups as follows: (a) Custodial parents under the age of twenty-four with little or no recent work experience; (b) custodial parents under the age of twenty-four who have not completed high school or its equivalent may be required to do so; (c) recipients who have received assistance for thirty-six of the preceding sixty months; and (d) at least one parent in an aid to families with dependent children-employable household shall be required to participate in one of the following JOBS components for a minimum of sixteen hours per week: (i) Community work experience; (ii) work experience; (iii) on-the-job training; (iv) work supplementation; (v) those under the age of twenty-four who have not completed high school or its equivalent may be required to do so.

             (5) The department shall develop a realistic schedule for the phase-in of recipient participation in the JOBS program based on the availability of state, federal, and other relevant funding.

             (6) All job search, skills training, and postsecondary education shall be oriented towards local labor force needs as determined by the department in consultation with the local private industry council and the employment security department. Education and skills training shall emphasize basic, secondary, and vocational education. Aid to families with dependent children grants shall be provided to individuals attending a four-year college or university only if it can be demonstrated that it provides the fastest and most efficient path to employment for a particular recipient. Aid to families with dependent children recipients are prohibited from undertaking a postsecondary course of study oriented primarily towards liberal arts.

             (7) Job search assistance, whether provided by the department or an entity contracting with the department, shall include job development services. The services shall be provided by persons responsible for identifying existing and potential job openings and for developing relationships with existing and potential area employers.

             (((3))) (8) The department of social and health services shall adopt rules under chapter 34.05 RCW establishing criteria constituting circumstances of good cause for an individual failing or refusing to participate in an assigned program component, or failing or refusing to accept or retain employment. These criteria shall include, but not be limited to, the following circumstances: (a) If the individual is a parent or other relative personally providing care for a child under age ((six years, and the employment would require the individual to work more than twenty hours per week)) three; (b) if child care, or day care for an incapacitated individual living in the same home as a dependent child, is necessary for an individual to participate or continue participation in the program or accept employment, and such care is not available, and the department of social and health services fails to provide such care; (c) the employment would result in the family of the participant experiencing a net loss of cash income; (d) if the individual is engaged in at least fifteen hours per week of unsubsidized employment; or (((d))) (e) circumstances that are beyond the control of the individual's household, either on a short-term or on an ongoing basis.

             (((4))) (9) The department of social and health services shall adopt rules under chapter 34.05 RCW as necessary to effectuate the intent and purpose of this chapter.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 8. A new section is added to chapter 74.25 RCW to read as follows:

             Recipients of aid to families with dependent children who are not participating in an education or work training program may volunteer to work in a licensed child care facility, or other willing volunteer work site. Licensed child care facilities participating in this effort shall provide care for the recipient's children and provide for the development of positive child care skills.


PART IV. ELIGIBILITY AND BENEFIT PAYMENT REVISIONS


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 9. A new section is added to chapter 74.12 RCW to read as follows:

             The legislature recognizes that long-term recipients of aid to families with dependent children may require a period of several years to attain economic self-sufficiency. To provide incentives for long-term recipients to leave public assistance and accept paid employment, the legislature finds that less punitive and onerous sanctions than those required by the federal government are appropriate. The legislature finds that a ten percent reduction in grants for long-term recipients that may be replaced through earned income is a more positive approach than sanctions required by the federal government for long-term recipients who fail to comply with requirements of the job opportunities and basic skills program. A long-term recipient shall not be subject to two simultaneous sanctions for failure to comply with the participation requirements of the job opportunities and basic skills program and for exceeding the length of stay provisions of this section.

             (1) After forty-eight monthly benefit payments in a sixty-month period, and after each additional twelve monthly benefit payments, the aid to families with dependent children monthly benefit payment shall be reduced by ten percent of the payment standard, except that after forty-eight monthly payments in a sixty-month period, full monthly benefit payments may be made if:

             (a) The person is incapacitated or is needed in the home to care for a member of the household who is incapacitated;

             (b) The person is needed in the home to care for a child who is under three years of age;

             (c) There are no adults in the assistance unit;

             (d) The person is cooperating in the development and implementation of an employability plan while receiving aid to families with dependent children and no present full-time, part-time, or unpaid work experience job is offered; or

             (e) During a month in which a grant reduction would be imposed under this section, the person is participating in an unpaid work experience program.

             (2) For purposes of determining the amount of the food stamp benefit for recipients subject to benefit reductions provided for in subsection (1) of this section, countable income from the aid to families with dependent children program shall be set at the payment standard.

             (3) For purposes of determining monthly benefit payments for two-parent aid to families with dependent children households, the length of stay criterion will be applied to the parent with the longer history of public assistance receipt.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 10. A new section is added to chapter 74.12 RCW to read as follows:

             For purposes of determining the amount of monthly benefit payment to recipients of aid to families with dependent children who are subject to benefit reductions due to length of stay, all countable nonexempt earned income shall be subtracted from an amount equal to the payment standard.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 11. A new section is added to chapter 74.12 RCW to read as follows:

             The department shall amend the state plan to eliminate the one hundred hour work rule for recipients of aid to families with dependent children-employable.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 12. A new section is added to chapter 74.12 RCW to read as follows:

             The revisions to the aid to families with dependent children program and job opportunities and basic skills training program shall be implemented by the department of social and health services on a state-wide basis.


PART V. CHILD SUPPORT


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 13. The department of social and health services shall make a substantial effort to determine the identity of the noncustodial parent through consistent implementation of RCW 70.58.080. By December 1, 1994, the department of social and health services shall report to the fiscal committees of the legislature on the method for validating claims of good cause for refusing to establish paternity, the methods used in other states, and the national average rate of claims of good cause for refusing to establish paternity compared to the Washington state rate of claims of good cause for refusing to establish paternity, the reasons for differences in the rates, and steps that may be taken to reduce these differences.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 14. A new section is added to chapter 74.20A RCW to read as follows:

The court shall notify the department of licensing and the department of social and health services of any failure by an agency to so report noncompliance. Any agency with knowledge of noncompliance that fails to so report shall be fined two hundred fifty dollars by the department of social and health services. Upon three such failures by an agency within one year, the department of social and health services shall revoke the agency's approval under this section.

             (5) The department of licensing and the department of social and health services may adopt such rules as are necessary to carry out this section.


PART IV - ADMINISTRATIVE REVOCATION


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 10. A new section is added to chapter 46.20 RCW to read as follows:

             (1) Notwithstanding any other provision of this title, a person under the age of twenty-one may not drive, operate, or be in physical control of a motor vehicle while having alcohol in his or her system in a concentration of 0.02 or above.

             (2) A person under the age of twenty-one who drives or is in physical control of a motor vehicle within this state is deemed to have given consent, subject to the relevant portions of RCW 46.61.506, to be detained long enough, and be transported if necessary, to take a test or tests of that person's blood or breath for the purpose of determining the alcohol concentration in his or her system.

             (3) A test or tests may be administered at the direction of a law enforcement officer, who after stopping or detaining the driver, has reasonable grounds to believe that the driver was driving or in actual physical control of a motor vehicle while having alcohol in his or her system.

             (4) The law enforcement officer requesting the test or tests under subsection (2) of this section shall warn the person requested to submit to the test that a refusal to submit will result in that person's driver's license or driving privilege being revoked.

             (5) If the person refuses testing, or submits to a test that discloses an alcohol concentration of 0.02 or more, the law enforcement officer shall:

             (a) Serve the person notice in writing on behalf of the department of licensing of its intention to suspend, revoke, or deny the person's license, permit, or privilege to drive;

             (b) Serve the person notice in writing on behalf of the department of licensing of the person's right to a hearing, specifying the steps required to obtain a hearing;

             (c) Confiscate the person's Washington state license or permit to drive, if any, and issue a temporary license to replace any confiscated license or permit. The temporary license shall be valid for thirty days from the date of the traffic stop or until the suspension or revocation of the person's license or permit is sustained at a hearing as provided by subsection (7) of this section, whichever occurs first. No temporary license is valid to any greater degree than the license or permit it replaces;

             (d) Notify the department of licensing of the traffic stop, and transmit to the department any confiscated license or permit and a sworn report stating:

             (i) That the officer had reasonable grounds to believe the person was driving or in actual physical control of a motor vehicle within this state with alcohol in his or her system;

             (ii) That pursuant to this section a test of the person's alcohol concentration was administered or that the person refused to be tested;

             (iii) If administered, that the test indicated the person's alcohol concentration was 0.02 or higher; and

             (iv) Any other information that the department may require by rule.

             (6) Upon receipt of the sworn report of a law enforcement officer under subsection (5) of this section, the department shall suspend or revoke the driver's license or driving privilege beginning thirty days from the date of the traffic stop or beginning when the suspension, revocation, or denial is sustained at a hearing as provided by subsection (7) of this section. Within fifteen days after notice of a suspension or revocation has been given, the person may, in writing, request a formal hearing. If such a request is not made within the prescribed time the right to a hearing is waived. Upon receipt of such request, the department shall afford the person an opportunity for a hearing as provided in RCW 46.20.329 and 46.20.332. The hearing shall be conducted in the county of the arrest. For the purposes of this section, the hearing shall cover the issues of whether a law enforcement officer had reasonable grounds to believe the person had been driving or was in actual physical control of a motor vehicle within this state while having alcohol in his or her system, whether the person refused to submit to the test or tests upon request of the officer after having been informed that the refusal would result in the revocation of the person's driver's license or driving privilege, and, if the test or tests of the person's breath or blood was administered, whether the results indicated an alcohol concentration of 0.02 or more. The department shall order that the suspension or revocation of the person's driver's license or driving privilege either be rescinded or sustained. Any decision by the department suspending or revoking a person's driver's license or driving privilege is stayed and does not take effect while a formal hearing is pending under this section or during the pendency of a subsequent appeal to superior court so long as there is no conviction for a moving violation or no finding that the person has committed a traffic infraction that is a moving violation during the pendency of the hearing and appeal. If the suspension or revocation of the person's driver's license or driving privilege is sustained after the hearing, the person may file a petition in the superior court of the county of arrest to review the final order of suspension or revocation by the department in the manner provided in RCW 46.20.334.

             (7) The department shall suspend or revoke the driver's license or driving privilege of a person as required by this section as follows:

             (a) In the case of a person who has refused a test or tests:

             (i) For a first refusal within five years, revocation for one year;

             (ii) For a second or subsequent refusal within five years, revocation or denial for two years.

             (b) In the case of an incident where a person has submitted to a test or tests indicating an alcohol concentration of 0.02 or more:

             (i) For a first incident within five years, suspension for ninety days;

             (ii) For a second or subsequent incident within five years, revocation for one year or until the person reaches age twenty-one whichever occurs later.

             (8) For purposes of this section, "alcohol concentration" means (a) grams of alcohol per two hundred ten liters of a person's breath, or (b) the percent by weight of alcohol in a person's blood.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 11. A new section is added to chapter 46.61 RCW to read as follows:

             (1) Any person requested or signaled to stop by a law enforcement officer pursuant to section 10 of this act has a duty to stop.

             (2) Whenever any person is stopped pursuant to section 10 of this act, the officer may detain that person for a reasonable period of time necessary to: Identify the person; check the status of the person's license, insurance identification card, and the vehicle's registration; and transport the person, if necessary, to and administer a test or tests to determine the alcohol concentration in the person's system.

             (3) Any person requested to identify himself or herself to a law enforcement officer pursuant to an investigation under section 10 of this act has a duty to identify himself or herself, give his or her current address, and sign an acknowledgement of receipt of the warning required by section 10(4) of this act and receipt of the notice and temporary license issued under section 10(5) of this act.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 12. A new section is added to chapter 46.61 RCW to read as follows:

             (1) This section applies to any person arrested for a violation of RCW 46.61.502 or 46.61.504 who has an alcohol concentration of 0.10 or higher as shown by a test administered under RCW 46.20.308.

             (2) The arresting officer or other law enforcement officer at whose direction the test was given shall:

             (a) Serve the person notice in writing on behalf of the department of licensing of its intention to suspend, revoke, or deny the person's license, permit, or privilege to drive or to issue a probationary license;

             (b) Serve the person notice in writing on behalf of the department of the person's right to a hearing, specifying the steps required to obtain a hearing;

             (c) Confiscate the person's Washington state license or permit to drive, if any, and issue a temporary license to replace any confiscated license or permit. The temporary license shall be valid for thirty days from the date of arrest or until the suspension or revocation of the person's license or permit, or the issuance of a probationary license, is sustained at a hearing pursuant to subsection (5) of this section, whichever occurs first. If the person has not within the previous five years committed an offense for which he or she was granted a deferred prosecution under chapter 10.05 RCW, and within thirty days of the arrest the person petitions a court for a deferred prosecution on criminal charges arising out of the arrest, the court shall direct the department to extend the period of the temporary license by at least an additional thirty days but not more than an additional sixty days. If a deferred prosecution treatment plan is not recommended in the report made under RCW 10.05.050, or if treatment is rejected by the court, or if the person declines to accept an offered treatment plan, then the court shall immediately direct the department to cancel any period of extension of the temporary license. No temporary license is valid to any greater degree than the license or permit it replaces;

             (d) Notify the department of the arrest, and transmit to the department any confiscated license or permit and a sworn report stating:

             (ii) That pursuant to RCW 46.20.308 a test of the person's alcohol concentration was administered;

             (iii) That the test indicated that the person's alcohol concentration was 0.10 or higher; and

             (iv) Any other information that the department may require by rule.

             (3) Upon receipt of a sworn statement under subsection (2) of this section, the department shall suspend, revoke, or deny the person's license, permit, or driving privilege, or shall issue a probationary license, effective beginning thirty days from the date of the arrest or beginning when the suspension, revocation, denial, or issuance is sustained at a hearing pursuant to subsection (5) of this section, whichever occurs first. The suspension, revocation, or denial, or issuance of a probationary license, shall be as follows:

             (a) Upon receipt of a first sworn statement, issuance of a probationary license under section 8 of this act;

             (b) Upon receipt of a second or subsequent statement indicating an arrest date that is within five years of the arrest date indicated by a previous statement, revocation for two years.

             (4) A person receiving notification under subsection (2) of this section may, within five days after his or her arrest, request a hearing before the department under subsection (5) of this section.

             (5) Upon timely receipt of a request and a one hundred dollar fee under subsection (4) of this section, the department shall afford the person an opportunity for a hearing. Except as otherwise provided in this section, the hearing is subject to and shall be scheduled and conducted in accordance with RCW 46.20.329 and 46.20.332. The hearing shall be conducted in the county of arrest, except that all or part of the hearing may, at the discretion of the department, be conducted by telephone or other electronic means. The hearing shall be held within thirty days following the arrest, unless otherwise agreed to by the department and the person. The hearing shall cover the issues of:

             (a) Whether the law enforcement officer had reasonable grounds to believe the person was driving or in actual physical control of a motor vehicle within this state while under the influence of intoxicating liquor;

             (b) Whether the test of the person's alcohol concentration was administered in accordance with RCW 46.20.308; and

             (c) Whether the test indicated that the person's alcohol concentration was 0.10 or higher.

             (6) The period of any suspension, revocation, or denial imposed under this section shall run consecutively to the period of any suspension, revocation, or denial imposed pursuant to a criminal conviction arising out of the same incident. A suspension, revocation, or denial imposed under this section shall be stayed if the person is accepted for deferred prosecution as provided in chapter 10.05 RCW for the incident upon which the suspension, revocation, or denial is based. If the deferred prosecution is terminated, the stay shall be lifted and the suspension, revocation, or denial reinstated. If the deferred prosecution is completed, the stay shall be lifted and the suspension, revocation, or denial canceled.

             (7) If the suspension, revocation, denial, or issuance is sustained after such a hearing, the person whose license, privilege, or permit is suspended, revoked, or denied, or who has been issued a probationary license, has the right to file a petition in the superior court of the county of arrest in the same manner as an appeal from a decision of a court of limited jurisdiction. The appellant must pay the costs associated with obtaining the record of the hearing before the hearing officer. A court may stay the suspension, revocation, or denial if it finds that the appellant is likely to prevail in the appeal and that without a stay the appellant will suffer irreparable injury. If the court stays the suspension, revocation, or denial, it may impose conditions on such stay.

             (8) When it has been finally determined under the procedures of this section that a nonresident's privilege to operate a motor vehicle in this state has been suspended, revoked, or denied, the department shall give information in writing of the action taken to the motor vehicle administrator of the state of the person's residence and of any state in which he or she has a license.


PART V - IMPLIED CONSENT


             Sec. 13. RCW 46.20.308 and 1989 c 337 s 8 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) Any person who operates a motor vehicle within this state is deemed to have given consent, subject to the provisions of RCW 46.61.506, to a test or tests of his or her breath or blood for the purpose of determining the alcoholic content of his or her breath or blood if arrested for any offense where, at the time of the arrest, the arresting officer has reasonable grounds to believe the person had been driving or was in actual physical control of a motor vehicle while under the influence of intoxicating liquor.

             (2) The test or tests of breath shall be administered at the direction of a law enforcement officer having reasonable grounds to believe the person to have been driving or in actual physical control of a motor vehicle within this state while under the influence of intoxicating liquor. However, in those instances where: (a) The person is incapable due to physical injury, physical incapacity, or other physical limitation, of providing a breath sample; or (b) as a result of a traffic accident the person is being treated for a medical condition in a hospital, clinic, doctor's office, or other similar facility in which a breath testing instrument is not present, a blood test shall be administered by a qualified person as provided in RCW 46.61.506(4). The officer shall inform the person of his or her right to refuse the breath or blood test, and of his or her right to have additional tests administered by any qualified person of his or her choosing as provided in RCW 46.61.506. The officer shall warn the driver that (a) his or her privilege to drive will be revoked or denied if he or she refuses to submit to the test, and (b) that his or her refusal to take the test may be used in a criminal trial.

             (3) Except as provided in this section, the test administered shall be of the breath only. If an individual is unconscious or is under arrest for the crime of vehicular homicide as provided in RCW 46.61.520 or vehicular assault as provided in RCW 46.61.522, or if an individual is under arrest for the crime of driving while under the influence of intoxicating liquor or drugs as provided in RCW 46.61.502, which arrest results from an accident in which another person has been injured and there is a reasonable likelihood that such other person may die as a result of injuries sustained in the accident, a breath or blood test may be administered without the consent of the individual so arrested.

             (4) Any person who is dead, unconscious, or who is otherwise in a condition rendering him or her incapable of refusal, shall be deemed not to have withdrawn the consent provided by subsection (1) of this section and the test or tests may be administered, subject to the provisions of RCW 46.61.506, and the person shall be deemed to have received the warnings required under subsection (2) of this section.

             (5) If, following his or her arrest and receipt of warnings under subsection (2) of this section, the person arrested refuses upon the request of a law enforcement officer to submit to a test or tests of his or her breath or blood, no test shall be given except as authorized under subsection (3) or (4) of this section.

             (6) The department of licensing, upon the receipt of a sworn report of the law enforcement officer that the officer had reasonable grounds to believe the arrested person had been driving or was in actual physical control of a motor vehicle within this state while under the influence of intoxicating liquor and that the person had refused to submit to the test or tests upon the request of the law enforcement officer after being informed that refusal would result in the revocation of the person's privilege to drive, shall revoke the person's license or permit to drive or any nonresident operating privilege.

             (7) Upon revoking the license or permit to drive or the nonresident operating privilege of any person, the department shall immediately notify the person involved in writing by personal service or by certified mail of its decision and the grounds therefor, and of the person's right to a hearing, specifying the steps he or she must take to obtain a hearing. Within fifteen days after the notice has been given, the person may, in writing, request a formal hearing. The person shall pay a fee of one hundred dollars as part of the request. Upon receipt of such request and such fee, the department shall afford the person an opportunity for a hearing as provided in RCW 46.20.329 and 46.20.332. The hearing shall be conducted in the county of the arrest. For the purposes of this section, the scope of such hearing shall cover the issues of whether a law enforcement officer had reasonable grounds to believe the person had been driving or was in actual physical control of a motor vehicle within this state while under the influence of intoxicating liquor, whether the person was placed under arrest, and whether the person refused to submit to the test or tests upon request of the officer after having been informed that such refusal would result in the revocation of the person's privilege to drive. The department shall order that the revocation either be rescinded or sustained. Any decision by the department revoking a person's driving privilege shall be stayed and shall not take effect while a formal hearing is pending as provided in this section or during the pendency of a subsequent appeal to superior court so long as there is no conviction for a moving violation or no finding that the person has committed a traffic infraction that is a moving violation during pendency of the hearing and appeal.

             (8) If the revocation is sustained after such a hearing, the person whose license, privilege, or permit is revoked has the right to file a petition in the superior court of the county of arrest to review the final order of revocation by the department in the manner provided in RCW 46.20.334.

             (9) When it has been finally determined under the procedures of this section that a nonresident's privilege to operate a motor vehicle in this state has been revoked, the department shall give information in writing of the action taken to the motor vehicle administrator of the state of the person's residence and of any state in which he or she has a license.

             Every court of record shall also forward a like report to the director upon the conviction of any person of manslaughter or other felony in the commission of which a vehicle was used.

             The failure of any such judicial officer to comply with any of the requirements of this section shall constitute misconduct in office and shall be grounds for removal therefrom.

             The director shall keep all abstracts received hereunder at the director's office in Olympia and the same shall be open to public inspection during reasonable business hours.

             Venue in all district courts shall be before one of the two nearest district judges in incorporated cities and towns nearest to the point the violation allegedly occurred: PROVIDED, That in counties with populations of one hundred twenty-five thousand or more such cases may be tried in the county seat at the request of the defendant.

The court upon receiving such a report shall hold a hearing to determine whether the petitioner should be removed from the deferred prosecution program. At the hearing, evidence shall be taken of the petitioner's alleged failure to comply with the treatment plan and the petitioner shall have the right to present evidence on his or her own behalf. The court shall either order that the petitioner continue on the treatment plan or be removed from deferred prosecution. If removed from deferred prosecution, the court shall enter judgment pursuant to RCW 10.05.020 and, if the charge for which the deferred prosecution was granted was a misdemeanor or gross misdemeanor under Title 46 RCW, shall notify the department of licensing of the removal and entry of judgment.


             Sec. 19. RCW 10.05.120 and 1985 c 352 s 15 are each amended to read as follows:

             Upon proof of successful completion of the two-year treatment program, the court shall dismiss the charges pending against the petitioner.

             ((Five years from the date of the court's approval of a deferred prosecution program for an individual petitioner, those entries that remain in the department of licensing records relating to such petitioner shall be removed. A deferred prosecution may be considered for enhancement purposes when imposing mandatory penalties and suspensions under RCW 46.61.515 for subsequent offenses within a five-year period.))

PART IX - INTERLOCK


             Sec. 21. RCW 46.20.710 and 1987 c 247 s 1 are each amended to read as follows:

             The legislature finds and declares:

             (1) There is a need to reduce the incidence of drivers on the highways and roads of this state who, because of their use, consumption, or possession of alcohol, pose a danger to the health and safety of other drivers;

             (2) One method of dealing with the problem of drinking drivers is to discourage the use of motor vehicles by persons who possess or have consumed alcoholic beverages;

             (3) The installation of an ignition interlock breath alcohol device or other biological or technical device will provide a means of deterring the use of motor vehicles by persons who have consumed alcoholic beverages;

             (4) Ignition interlock and other biological and technical devices are designed to supplement other methods of punishment that prevent drivers from using a motor vehicle after using, possessing, or consuming alcohol;

             (5) It is economically and technically feasible to have an ignition interlock or other biological or technical device installed in a motor vehicle in such a manner that the vehicle will not start if the operator has recently consumed alcohol.


             Sec. 22. RCW 46.20.720 and 1987 c 247 s 2 are each amended to read as follows:

             The court may order any person convicted of any offense involving the use, consumption, or possession of alcohol while operating a motor vehicle to drive only a motor vehicle equipped with a functioning ignition interlock or other biological or technical device, and the restriction shall be for a period of not less than six months.

             The court shall establish a specific calibration setting at which the ignition interlock or other biological or technical device will prevent the motor vehicle from being started and the period of time that the person shall be subject to the restriction.

             For purposes of this section, "convicted" means being found guilty of an offense or being placed on a deferred prosecution program under chapter 10.05 RCW.


             Sec. 23. RCW 46.20.730 and 1987 c 247 s 3 are each amended to read as follows:

             For the purposes of RCW 46.20.720, 46.20.740, and 46.20.750, "ignition interlock device" means breath alcohol analyzed ignition equipment, certified by the state commission on equipment, designed to prevent a motor vehicle from being operated by a person who has consumed an alcoholic beverage, and "other biological or technical device" means any device meeting the standards of the national highway traffic safety administration or the state commission on equipment, designed to prevent the operation of a motor vehicle by a person who is impaired by alcohol or drugs. The commission shall by rule provide standards for the certification, installation, repair, and removal of the devices.


             Sec. 24. RCW 46.20.740 and 1987 c 247 s 4 are each amended to read as follows:

             The department shall attach or imprint a notation on the driver's license of any person restricted under RCW 46.20.720 stating that the person may operate only a motor vehicle equipped with an ignition interlock or other biological or technical device.


             Sec. 25. RCW 46.20.750 and 1987 c 247 s 5 are each amended to read as follows:

             A person who knowingly assists another person who is restricted to the use of an ignition interlock or other biological or technical device to start and operate that vehicle in violation of a court order is guilty of a gross misdemeanor.

             The provisions of this section do not apply if the starting of a motor vehicle, or the request to start a motor vehicle, equipped with an ignition interlock or other biological or technical device is done for the purpose of safety or mechanical repair of the device or the vehicle and the person subject to the court order does not operate the vehicle.


PART X - MISCELLANEOUS


             Sec. 26. RCW 46.61.506 and 1987 c 373 s 4 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) Upon the trial of any civil or criminal action or proceeding arising out of acts alleged to have been committed by any person while driving or in actual physical control of a vehicle while under the influence of intoxicating liquor or any drug, if the ((amount of alcohol in the person's blood or breath at the time alleged as shown by analysis of his blood or breath is less than 0.10 percent by weight of alcohol in his blood or 0.10 grams of alcohol per two hundred ten liters of the person's breath)) person's alcohol concentration is less than 0.10, it is evidence that may be considered with other competent evidence in determining whether the person was under the influence of intoxicating liquor or any drug.

             (2) The breath analysis shall be based upon grams of alcohol per two hundred ten liters of breath. The foregoing provisions of this section shall not be construed as limiting the introduction of any other competent evidence bearing upon the question whether the person was under the influence of intoxicating liquor or any drug.

             (3) Analysis of the person's blood or breath to be considered valid under the provisions of this section or RCW 46.61.502 or 46.61.504 shall have been performed according to methods approved by the state toxicologist and by an individual possessing a valid permit issued by the state toxicologist for this purpose. The state toxicologist is directed to approve satisfactory techniques or methods, to supervise the examination of individuals to ascertain their qualifications and competence to conduct such analyses, and to issue permits which shall be subject to termination or revocation at the discretion of the state toxicologist.

             (4) When a blood test is administered under the provisions of RCW 46.20.308, the withdrawal of blood for the purpose of determining its alcoholic content may be performed only by a physician, a registered nurse, or a qualified technician. This limitation shall not apply to the taking of breath specimens.

             (5) The person tested may have a physician, or a qualified technician, chemist, registered nurse, or other qualified person of his or her own choosing administer one or more tests in addition to any administered at the direction of a law enforcement officer. The failure or inability to obtain an additional test by a person shall not preclude the admission of evidence relating to the test or tests taken at the direction of a law enforcement officer.

             (6) Upon the request of the person who shall submit to a test or tests at the request of a law enforcement officer, full information concerning the test or tests shall be made available to him or her or his or her attorney.


             Sec. 27. RCW 46.20.311 and 1993 c 501 s 5 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) The department shall not suspend a driver's license or privilege to drive a motor vehicle on the public highways for a fixed period of more than one year, except as specifically permitted under RCW 46.20.342 or ((46.61.515)) other provision of law. Except for a suspension under RCW 46.20.289 and 46.20.291(5), whenever the license or driving privilege of any person is suspended by reason of a conviction, a finding that a traffic infraction has been committed, pursuant to chapter 46.29 RCW, or pursuant to RCW 46.20.291, the suspension shall remain in effect until the person gives and thereafter maintains proof of financial responsibility for the future as provided in chapter 46.29 RCW. The department shall not issue to the person a new, duplicate, or renewal license until the person pays a reissue fee of twenty dollars. If the suspension is the result of a violation of RCW 46.61.502 or 46.61.504, the reissue fee shall be fifty dollars.

             (2) Any person whose license or privilege to drive a motor vehicle on the public highways has been revoked, unless the revocation was for a cause which has been removed, is not entitled to have the license or privilege renewed or restored until: (a) After the expiration of one year from the date the license or privilege to drive was revoked; (b) after the expiration of the applicable revocation period provided by RCW ((46.61.515(3) (b) or (c))) 46.20.308 or section 5, 6, or 12 of this act; (c) after the expiration of two years for persons convicted of vehicular homicide; or (d) ((after the expiration of one year in cases of revocation for the first refusal within five years to submit to a chemical test under RCW 46.20.308; (e) after the expiration of two years in cases of revocation for the second or subsequent refusal within five years to submit to a chemical test under RCW 46.20.308; or (f))) after the expiration of the applicable revocation period provided by RCW 46.20.265. After the expiration of the appropriate period, the person may make application for a new license as provided by law together with a reissue fee in the amount of twenty dollars, but if the revocation is the result of a violation of RCW 46.20.308, 46.61.502, or 46.61.504 or is the result of administrative action under section 12 of this act, the reissue fee shall be fifty dollars. Except for a revocation under RCW 46.20.265, the department shall not then issue a new license unless it is satisfied after investigation of the driving ability of the person that it will be safe to grant the privilege of driving a motor vehicle on the public highways, and until the person gives and thereafter maintains proof of financial responsibility for the future as provided in chapter 46.29 RCW. For a revocation under RCW 46.20.265, the department shall not issue a new license unless it is satisfied after investigation of the driving ability of the person that it will be safe to grant that person the privilege of driving a motor vehicle on the public highways.

             (3) Whenever the driver's license of any person is suspended pursuant to Article IV of the nonresident violators compact or RCW 46.23.020 or 46.20.289 or 46.20.291(5), the department shall not issue to the person any new or renewal license until the person pays a reissue fee of twenty dollars. If the suspension is the result of a violation of the laws of this or any other state, province, or other jurisdiction involving (a) the operation or physical control of a motor vehicle upon the public highways while under the influence of intoxicating liquor or drugs, or (b) the refusal to submit to a chemical test of the driver's blood alcohol content, the reissue fee shall be fifty dollars.


             Sec. 28. RCW 46.04.580 and 1990 c 250 s 22 are each amended to read as follows:

             "Suspend," in all its forms and unless a different period is specified, means invalidation for any period less than one calendar year and thereafter until reinstatement. ((However, under RCW 46.61.515 the invalidation may last for more than one calendar year.))


             Sec. 29. RCW 46.20.391 and 1985 c 407 s 5 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) Any person licensed under this chapter who is convicted of an offense relating to motor vehicles for which suspension or revocation of the driver's license is mandatory, other than vehicular homicide or vehicular assault, may submit to the department an application for an occupational driver's license. The department, upon receipt of the prescribed fee and upon determining that the petitioner is engaged in an occupation or trade that makes it essential that the petitioner operate a motor vehicle, may issue an occupational driver's license and may set definite restrictions as provided in RCW 46.20.394. No person may petition for, and the department shall not issue, an occupational driver's license that is effective during the first thirty days of any suspension or revocation imposed ((under RCW 46.61.515)) for a violation of RCW 46.61.502 or 46.61.504. No person may petition for, and the department shall not issue, an occupational driver's license if the person is ineligible for such a license under section 5 or 6 of this act. A person aggrieved by the decision of the department on the application for an occupational driver's license may request a hearing as provided by rule of the department.

             (2) An applicant for an occupational driver's license is eligible to receive such license only if:

             (a) Within one year immediately preceding the date of the offense that gave rise to the present conviction, the applicant has not ((been convicted)) committed of any offense relating to motor vehicles for which suspension or revocation of a driver's license is mandatory; and

             (b) Within five years immediately preceding the date of the offense that gave rise to the present conviction, the applicant has not ((been convicted of)) committed any of the following offenses: (i) Driving or being in actual physical control of a motor vehicle while under the influence of intoxicating liquor ((under RCW 46.61.502 or 46.61.504, of)); (ii) vehicular homicide under RCW 46.61.520((, or of)); or (iii) vehicular assault under RCW 46.61.522; and

             (c) The applicant is engaged in an occupation or trade that makes it essential that he or she operate a motor vehicle; and

             Sec. 30. RCW 5.40.060 and 1987 c 212 s 1001 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) Except as provided in subsection (2) of this section, it is a complete defense to an action for damages for personal injury or wrongful death that the person injured or killed was under the influence of intoxicating liquor or any drug at the time of the occurrence causing the injury or death and that such condition was a proximate cause of the injury or death and the trier of fact finds such person to have been more than fifty percent at fault. The standard for determining whether a person was under the influence of intoxicating liquor or drugs shall be the same standard established for criminal convictions under RCW 46.61.502, and evidence that a person was under the influence of intoxicating liquor or drugs under the standard established by RCW 46.61.502 shall be conclusive proof that such person was under the influence of intoxicating liquor or drugs.

             (2) In an action for damages for personal injury or wrongful death that is brought against the driver of a motor vehicle who was under the influence of intoxicating liquor or any drug at the time of the occurrence causing the injury or death and whose condition was a proximate cause of the injury or death, subsection (1) of this section does not create a defense against the action notwithstanding that the person injured or killed was also under the influence so long as such person's condition was not a proximate cause of the occurrence causing the injury or death.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 31. Section 30 of this act is remedial in nature and shall apply retroactively.


             Sec. 32. RCW 46.55.113 and 1987 c 311 s 10 are each amended to read as follows:

             Whenever the driver of a vehicle is arrested for a violation of RCW 46.61.502 or 46.61.504, the arresting officer may take custody of the vehicle and provide for its prompt removal to a place of safety. In addition, a police officer may take custody of a vehicle and provide for its prompt removal to a place of safety under any of the following circumstances:

             (1) Whenever a police officer finds a vehicle standing upon the roadway in violation of any of the provisions of RCW 46.61.560, the officer may provide for the removal of the vehicle or require the driver or other person in charge of the vehicle to move the vehicle to a position off the roadway;

             (2) Whenever a police officer finds a vehicle unattended upon a highway where the vehicle constitutes an obstruction to traffic or jeopardizes public safety;

             (3) Whenever a police officer finds an unattended vehicle at the scene of an accident or when the driver of a vehicle involved in an accident is physically or mentally incapable((, or too intoxicated, to decide)) of deciding upon steps to be taken to protect his or her property;

             (4) Whenever the driver of a vehicle is arrested and taken into custody by a police officer((, and the driver, because of intoxication or otherwise, is mentally incapable of deciding upon steps to be taken to safeguard his or her property));

             (5) Whenever a police officer discovers a vehicle that the officer determines to be a stolen vehicle;

             (6) Whenever a vehicle without a special license plate, card, or decal indicating that the vehicle is being used to transport a disabled person under RCW 46.16.381 is parked in a stall or space clearly and conspicuously marked under RCW 46.61.581 which space is provided on private property without charge or on public property.

             Nothing in this section may derogate from the powers of police officers under the common law. For the purposes of this section, a place of safety may include the business location of a registered tow truck operator.

Brad Hendrickson, Deputy Secretary


REPORT OF CONFERENCE COMMITTEE


E2SHB 2510                                                                                                                                          March 9, 1994


Includes "NEW ITEM": YES


             Implementing regulatory reform.


Mr. President:

Mr. Speaker:


             We of your CONFERENCE COMMITTEE, to whom was referred ENGROSSED SECOND SUBSTITUTE HOUSE BILL NO. 2510, Regulatory reform, have had the same under consideration and we recommend that:

 

All previous amendments not be adopted, and the striking amendment by the Conference Committee (See attached 2510-S2.E AMC CONF S5935.4) be adopted:


             Strike everything after the enacting clause and insert the following:


             "Sec. 1. RCW 34.05.310 and 1993 c 202 s 2 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) To meet the intent of providing greater public access to administrative rule making and to promote consensus among interested parties, agencies ((are encouraged to:

             (1))) shall solicit comments from the public on a subject of possible rule making before publication of a notice of proposed rule adoption under RCW 34.05.320. ((This process can be accomplished by having a notice published in the state register of the subject under active consideration and indicating where, when, and how persons may comment; and)) The agency shall prepare a statement of intent that:

             (a) States the specific statutory authority for the new rule;

             (b) Identifies the reasons the new rule is needed;

             (c) Identifies the goals of the new rule;

             (d) Describes the process by which the rule will be developed, including, but not limited to, negotiated rule making, pilot rule making, or agency study; and

             (e) Specifies the process by which interested parties can effectively participate in the formulation of the new rule.

             The statement of intent shall be filed with the code reviser for publication in the state register and shall be sent to any party that has requested receipt of the agency's statements of intent.

             (2) Agencies are encouraged to develop and use new procedures for reaching agreement among interested parties before publication of notice and the adoption hearing on a proposed rule. Examples of new procedures include, but are not limited to:

             (a) Negotiated rule making which includes:

             (i) Identifying individuals and organizations that have a recognized interest in or will be significantly affected by the adoption of the proposed rule;

             (((b))) (ii) Soliciting participation by persons who are capable, willing, and appropriately authorized to enter into such negotiations;

             (((c))) (iii) Assuring that participants fully recognize the consequences of not participating in the process, are committed to negotiate in good faith, and recognize the alternatives available to other parties;

             (((d))) (iv) Establishing guidelines to encourage consideration of all pertinent issues, to set reasonable completion deadlines, and to provide fair and objective settlement of disputes that may arise;

             (((e))) (v) Agreeing on a reasonable time period during which the agency will be bound to the rule resulting from the negotiations without substantive amendment; and

             (((f))) (vi) Providing a mechanism by which one or more parties may withdraw from the process or the negotiations may be terminated if it appears that consensus cannot be reached on a draft rule that accommodates the needs of the agency, interested parties, and the general public and conforms to the legislative intent of the statute that the rule is intended to implement; and

             (b) Pilot rule making which includes testing the draft of a proposed rule through the use of volunteer pilot study groups in various areas and circumstances.

             (3)(a) An agency must make a determination whether negotiated rule making, pilot rule making, or another process for generating participation from interested parties prior to development of the rule is appropriate.

             (b) An agency must include a written justification in the rule-making file if an opportunity for interested parties to participate in the rule-making process prior to publication of the proposed rule has not been provided.


             Sec. 2. RCW 34.05.370 and 1988 c 288 s 313 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) Each agency shall maintain an official rule-making file for each rule that it (a) proposes by publication in the state register, or (b) adopts. The file and materials incorporated by reference shall be available for public inspection.

             (2) The agency rule-making file shall contain all of the following:

             (a) Copies of all publications in the state register with respect to the rule or the proceeding upon which the rule is based;

             (b) Copies of any portions of the agency's public rule-making docket containing entries relating to the rule or the proceeding on which the rule is based;

             (c) All written petitions, requests, submissions, and comments received by the agency and all other written material regarded by the agency as important to adoption of the rule or the proceeding on which the rule is based;

             (d) Any official transcript of oral presentations made in the proceeding on which the rule is based or, if not transcribed, any tape recording or stenographic record of them, and any memorandum prepared by a presiding official summarizing the contents of those presentations;

             (e) The concise explanatory statement required by RCW 34.05.355;

             (f) All petitions for exceptions to, amendment of, or repeal or suspension of, the rule; ((and))

             (g) Citations to data, factual information, studies, or reports on which the agency relies in the adoption of the rule, indicating where such data, factual information, studies, or reports are available for review by the public;

             (h) The written summary and response required by RCW 34.05.325(6); and

             (i) Any other material placed in the file by the agency.

             (3) Internal agency documents are exempt from inclusion in the rule-making file under subsection (2) of this section to the extent they constitute preliminary drafts, notes, recommendations, and intra-agency memoranda in which opinions are expressed or policies formulated or recommended, except that a specific document is not exempt from inclusion when it is publicly cited by an agency in connection with its decision.

             (4) Upon judicial review, the file required by this section constitutes the official agency rule-making file with respect to that rule. Unless otherwise required by another provision of law, the official agency rule-making file need not be the exclusive basis for agency action on that rule.


             Sec. 3. RCW 34.05.350 and 1989 c 175 s 10 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) If an agency for good cause finds:

             (a) That immediate adoption, amendment, or repeal of a rule is necessary for the preservation of the public health, safety, or general welfare, and that observing the time requirements of notice and opportunity to comment upon adoption of a permanent rule would be contrary to the public interest; or

             (b) That state or federal law or federal rule or a federal deadline for state receipt of federal funds requires immediate adoption of a rule,

the agency may dispense with those requirements and adopt, amend, or repeal the rule on an emergency basis. The agency's finding and a concise statement of the reasons for its finding shall be incorporated in the order for adoption of the emergency rule or amendment filed with the office of the code reviser under RCW 34.05.380 and with the rules review committee.

             (2) An emergency rule adopted under this section takes effect upon filing with the code reviser, unless a later date is specified in the order of adoption, and may not remain in effect for longer than one hundred twenty days after filing. Identical or substantially similar emergency rules may not be adopted in sequence unless conditions have changed or the agency has filed notice of its intent to adopt the rule as a permanent rule, and is actively undertaking the appropriate procedures to adopt the rule as a permanent rule. This section does not relieve any agency from compliance with any law requiring that its permanent rules be approved by designated persons or bodies before they become effective.

             (3) Within seven days after the rule is adopted, any person may petition the governor requesting the immediate repeal of a rule adopted on an emergency basis by any department listed in RCW 43.17.010. Within seven days after submission of the petition, the governor shall either deny the petition in writing, stating his or her reasons for the denial, or order the immediate repeal of the rule. In ruling on the petition, the governor shall consider only whether the conditions in subsection (1) of this section were met such that adoption of the rule on an emergency basis was necessary. If the governor orders the repeal of the emergency rule, any sanction imposed based on that rule is void. This subsection shall not be construed to prohibit adoption of any rule as a permanent rule.

             (4) In adopting an emergency rule, the agency shall comply with section 4 of this act or provide a written explanation for its failure to do so.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 4. A new section is added to chapter 34.05 RCW under the subchapter heading Part III to read as follows:

             (a) The rule is needed;

             (b) The likely benefits of the rule justify its likely costs;

             (c) There are no reasonable alternatives to the rule that were presented during the public comment period that would be as effective but less burdensome on those required to comply;

             (d) Any fee imposed will generate no more revenue than is necessary to achieve the objectives of the statute authorizing the fee;

             (e) The rule does not conflict with any other provision of federal or state law;

             (f) Any overlap or duplication of the rule with any other provision of federal or state law is necessary to achieve the objectives of the statute upon which the rule is based or expressly authorized by statute;

             (g) Any difference between the rule and any provision of federal law regulating the same activity or subject matter is necessary to achieve the objectives of the statute upon which the rule is based or expressly authorized by statute; and

             (h) Any difference between the rule's application to public and private entities is necessary to achieve the objectives of the statute upon which the rule is based or expressly authorized by statute.

             (2) The agency shall prepare a written description of its determinations under subsection (1) of this section. This description shall be part of the official rule-making file for the rule.

             (3) This section applies only to a rule the violation of which subjects a person to a penalty or administrative sanction; that establishes, alters, or revokes a qualification or standard for the issuance, suspension, or revocation of a license to pursue a commercial activity, trade, or profession; or that establishes, alters, or revokes a mandatory standard for a product or material that must be met before distribution or sale.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 5. A new section is added to chapter 34.05 RCW to read as follows:

If the agency is unable to do this, the agency shall report to the legislature pursuant to (c) of this subsection;

             (c) Report to the joint administrative rules review committee: (i) The existence of any overlap or duplication of other federal or state laws, any differences from federal law, and any known overlap, duplication, or conflict with local laws; and (ii) legislation that may be necessary to eliminate or mitigate any adverse effects of such overlap, duplication, or difference.

             (d) The extent to which technology, social or economic conditions, or other relevant factors have changed since the rule was adopted, and whether, given those changes, the rule continues to be necessary and appropriate;

             (e) Whether the statute that the rule implements has been amended or repealed by the legislature, or ruled invalid by a court.

             (4) The governor's office shall provide a copy of the governor's ruling under subsection (2) of this section to anyone upon request.


             Sec. 7. RCW 34.05.325 and 1992 c 57 s 1 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) The agency shall make a good faith effort to insure that the information on the proposed rule published pursuant to RCW 34.05.320 accurately reflects the rule to be presented and considered at the oral hearing on the rule. Written comment about a proposed rule, including supporting data, shall be accepted by an agency if received no later than the time and date specified in the notice, or such later time and date established at the rule-making hearing.

             (2) The agency shall provide an opportunity for oral comment to be received by the agency in a rule-making hearing.

             (3) If the agency possesses equipment capable of receiving telefacsimile transmissions or recorded telephonic communications, the agency may provide in its notice of hearing filed under RCW 34.05.320 that interested parties may comment on proposed rules by these means. If the agency chooses to receive comments by these means, the notice of hearing shall provide instructions for making such comments, including, but not limited to, appropriate telephone numbers to be used; the date and time by which comments must be received; required methods to verify the receipt and authenticity of the comments; and any limitations on the number of pages for telefacsimile transmission comments and on the minutes of tape recorded comments. The agency shall accept comments received by these means for inclusion in the official record if the comments are made in accordance with the agency's instructions.

             (4) The agency head, a member of the agency head, or a presiding officer designated by the agency head shall preside at the rule-making hearing. Rule-making hearings shall be open to the public. The agency shall cause a record to be made of the hearing by stenographic, mechanical, or electronic means. Unless the agency head presides or is present at substantially all the hearings, the presiding official shall prepare a memorandum for consideration by the agency head, summarizing the contents of the presentations made at the rule-making hearing. The summarizing memorandum is a public document and shall be made available to any person in accordance with chapter 42.17 RCW.

             (5) Rule-making hearings are legislative in character and shall be reasonably conducted by the presiding official to afford interested persons the opportunity to present comment.

             NEW SECTION. Sec. 9. A new section is added to chapter 19.85 RCW to read as follows:

             The legislature finds that administrative rules adopted by state agencies can have a disproportionate impact on the state's small businesses because of the size of those businesses. This disproportionate impact reduces competition, innovation, employment, and new employment opportunities, and threatens the very existence of some small businesses. The legislature therefore enacts the regulatory fairness act with the intent of reducing the disproportionate impact of state administrative rules on small business.


             Sec. 10. RCW 19.85.020 and 1993 c 280 s 34 are each amended to read as follows:

             Unless the context clearly indicates otherwise, the definitions in this section apply through this chapter.

             (1) "Small business" means any business entity, including a sole proprietorship, corporation, partnership, or other legal entity, that is owned and operated independently from all other businesses, that has the purpose of making a profit, and that has fifty or fewer employees.

             (2) "Small business economic impact statement" means a statement meeting the requirements of RCW 19.85.040 prepared by a state agency pursuant to RCW 19.85.030.

             (3) "Industry" means all of the businesses in this state in any one ((three-digit)) four-digit standard industrial classification as published by the United States department of commerce. However, if the use of a four-digit standard industrial classification would result in the release of data that would violate state confidentiality laws, "industry" means all businesses in a three-digit standard industrial classification.


             Sec. 11. RCW 19.85.030 and 1989 c 374 s 2 and 1989 c 175 s 72 are each reenacted and amended to read as follows:

             (1) In the adoption of any rule pursuant to RCW 34.05.320 that will ((have an economic impact)) impose more than minor costs on more than twenty percent of all industries, or more than ten percent of any one industry, the adopting agency:

             (((1))) (a) Shall reduce the economic impact of the rule on small business by doing one or more of the following when it is legal and feasible in meeting the stated objective of the statutes which are the basis of the proposed rule:

             (((a))) (i) Establish differing compliance or reporting requirements or timetables for small businesses;

             (((b))) (ii) Clarify, consolidate, or simplify the compliance and reporting requirements under the rule for small businesses;

             (((c))) (iii) Establish performance rather than design standards;

             (((d))) (iv) Exempt small businesses from any or all requirements of the rule;

             (v) Reduce or modify fine schedules for noncompliance; and

             (vi) Other mitigation techniques;

             (((2))) (b) Before filing notice of a proposed rule, shall prepare a small business economic impact statement in accordance with RCW 19.85.040 and file ((such)) notice of how the person can obtain the statement with the code reviser ((along with)) as part of the notice required under RCW 34.05.320;

             (2) If requested to do so by a majority vote of the joint administrative rules review committee within thirty days after notice of the proposed rule is published in the state register, an agency shall prepare a small business economic impact statement on the proposed rule before adoption of the rule. Upon completion, an agency shall provide a copy of the small business economic impact statement to any person requesting it.

             (3) An agency may request assistance from the business assistance center in the preparation of the small business economic impact statement.

             (4) The business assistance center shall develop guidelines to assist agencies in determining whether a proposed rule will impose more than minor costs on businesses in an industry and therefore require preparation of a small business economic impact statement. The business assistance center may review an agency determination that a proposed rule will not impose such costs, and shall advise the joint administrative rules review committee on disputes involving agency determinations under this section.


             Sec. 12. RCW 19.85.040 and 1989 c 374 s 3 and 1989 c 175 s 73 are each reenacted and amended to read as follows:

             (1) A small business economic impact statement must include a brief description of the reporting, recordkeeping, and other compliance requirements of the proposed rule, and the kinds of professional services that a small business is likely to need in order to comply with such requirements. ((A small business economic impact statement)) It shall analyze((, based on existing data,)) the costs of compliance for businesses required to comply with the ((provisions of a)) proposed rule adopted pursuant to RCW 34.05.320, including costs of equipment, supplies, labor, and increased administrative costs((, and)). It shall consider, based on input received, whether compliance with the rule will cause businesses to lose sales or revenue. To determine whether the proposed rule will have a disproportionate impact on small businesses, the impact statement must compare ((to the greatest extent possible)) the cost of compliance for small business with the cost of compliance for the ten percent of ((firms which)) businesses that are the largest businesses required to comply with the proposed ((new or amendatory)) rules((. The small business economic impact statement shall use)) using one or more of the following as a basis for comparing costs:

             (((1))) (a) Cost per employee;

             (((2))) (b) Cost per hour of labor; or

             (((3))) (c) Cost per one hundred dollars of sales((;

             (4) Any combination of (1), (2), or (3))).

             (2) A small business economic impact statement must also include:

             (a) A statement of the steps taken by the agency to reduce the costs of the rule on small businesses as required by RCW 19.85.030(1), or reasonable justification for not doing so, addressing the options listed in RCW 19.85.030(1);

             (b) A description of how the agency will involve small businesses in the development of the rule; and

             (c) A list of industries that will be required to comply with the rule. However, this subsection (2)(c) shall not be construed to preclude application of the rule to any business or industry to which it would otherwise apply.

             (3) To obtain information for purposes of this section, an agency may survey a representative sample of affected businesses or trade associations and should, whenever possible, appoint a committee under RCW 34.05.310(2) to assist in the accurate assessment of the costs of a proposed rule, and the means to reduce the costs imposed on small business.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 13. A new section is added to chapter 19.85 RCW to read as follows:

             Unless so requested by a majority vote of the joint administrative rules review committee under RCW 19.85.030, an agency is not required to comply with this chapter when adopting any rule solely for the purpose of conformity or compliance, or both, with federal law. In lieu of the statement required under RCW 19.85.030, the agency shall file a statement citing, with specificity, the federal law with which the rule is being adopted to conform or comply, and describing the consequences to the state if the rule is not adopted.


             Sec. 14. RCW 34.05.320 and 1992 c 197 s 8 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) At least twenty days before the rule-making hearing at which the agency receives public comment regarding adoption of a rule, the agency shall cause notice of the hearing to be published in the state register. The publication constitutes the proposal of a rule. The notice shall include all of the following:

             (a) A title, a description of the rule's purpose, and any other information which may be of assistance in identifying the rule or its purpose;

             (d) The agency personnel, with their office location and telephone number, who are responsible for the drafting, implementation, and enforcement of the rule;

             (e) The name of the person or organization, whether private, public, or governmental, proposing the rule;

             (h) When, where, and how persons may present their views on the proposed rule;

             (i) The date on which the agency intends to adopt the rule;

An agency may charge for the actual cost of providing individual mailed copies of these notices.

             (4) In addition to the notice required by subsections (1) and (2) of this section, an institution of higher education shall cause the notice to be published in the campus or standard newspaper of the institution at least seven days before the rule-making hearing.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 15. A new section is added to chapter 43.31 RCW to read as follows:

             (1) RCW 19.85.010 and 1982 c 6 s 1;

             (2) RCW 19.85.060 and 1989 c 374 s 5; and

             (3) RCW 19.85.080 and 1992 c 197 s 2.


             Sec. 17. RCW 34.05.620 and 1988 c 288 s 602 are each amended to read as follows:

             Whenever a majority of the members of the rules review committee determines that a proposed rule is not within the intent of the legislature as expressed in the statute which the rule implements, or that an agency may not be adopting a proposed rule in accordance with all applicable provisions of law, including section 4 of this act and chapter 19.85 RCW, the committee shall give the affected agency written notice of its decision. The notice shall be given at least seven days prior to any hearing scheduled for consideration of or adoption of the proposed rule pursuant to RCW 34.05.320. The notice shall include a statement of the review committee's findings and the reasons therefor. When the agency holds a hearing on the proposed rule, the agency shall consider the review committee's decision.

             (1) All rules required to be filed pursuant to RCW 34.05.380, and emergency rules adopted pursuant to RCW 34.05.350, are subject to selective review by the legislature.

             (2) The rules review committee may review an agency's use of policy statements, guidelines, and issuances that are of general applicability, or their equivalents to determine whether or not an agency has failed to adopt a rule or whether they are within the intent of the legislature as expressed by the governing statute.

             Sec. 19. RCW 34.05.640 and 1993 c 277 s 2 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) Within seven days of an agency hearing held after notification of the agency by the rules review committee pursuant to RCW 34.05.620 or 34.05.630, the affected agency shall notify the committee of its action on a proposed or existing rule to which the committee objected or on a committee finding of the agency's failure to adopt rules. If the rules review committee determines, by a majority vote of its members, that the agency has failed to provide for the required hearings or notice of its action to the committee, the committee may file notice of its objections, together with a concise statement of the reasons therefor, with the code reviser within thirty days of such determination.

             (4) If the governor disapproves the recommendation of the rules review committee to suspend the rule, the transmittal of such decision, along with the findings of the rules review committee, shall be treated by the agency as a petition by the rules review committee to repeal the rule under RCW 34.05.330.

             (5) The code reviser shall publish transmittals from the rules review committee or the governor issued pursuant to subsection (1), (2), or (3) of this section in the Washington state register and shall publish in the next supplement and compilation of the Washington Administrative Code a reference to the committee's objection or recommended suspension and the governor's action on it and to the issue of the Washington state register in which the full text thereof appears.

             (2) Notwithstanding subsection (1) of this section, if the joint administrative rules review committee, by a two-thirds vote of its members, recommends to the governor that an existing rule be suspended because it does not conform with the intent of the legislature, the recommendation shall establish a rebuttable presumption in any proceeding challenging the validity of the rule that the rule is invalid. The burden of demonstrating the rule's validity is then on the adopting agency.

Where a penalty is otherwise provided, but may not be imposed under this subsection, the agency shall issue a statement of deficiency.

             (3) A statement of deficiency shall specify: (a) The particular rule violated; (b) the steps the entity must take to comply with the rule; (c) any agency personnel designated by the agency to provide technical assistance regarding compliance with the rule; and (d) a date by which the entity is required to comply with the rule. The date specified shall provide a reasonable period of time for the entity to comply with the rule, considering the size of the entity, its available resources, and the threat posed by the violation.

             (4) Subsection (2) of this section shall not apply to any violation that places a person in danger of death or bodily harm, is causing or is likely to cause more than minor environmental harm, or has caused or is likely to cause physical damage to the property of others in an amount exceeding one thousand dollars. With regard to a statute or rule requiring the payment of a tax, subsection (2) of this section shall not apply if the amount of taxes actually owed by the business entity exceeds the amount paid by more than one thousand dollars and shall not be construed to relieve anyone from the obligation to pay interest on taxes owed.

             (5) The state, the agency, and officers or employees of the state shall not be liable for damages to any person to the extent that liability is asserted to arise from the technical assistance provided under this section, or if liability is asserted to arise from the failure of the agency to supply technical assistance.

             (6) An agency need not comply with this section if compliance may be in conflict with a requirement of federal law for obtaining or maintaining state authority to administer a federally delegated program; however, the agency shall submit a written petition to the appropriate federal agency for authorization to comply with this section for all inspections while obtaining or maintaining the state's federal delegation and shall comply with this section to the extent authorized by the appropriate federal agency.


             Sec. 24. RCW 34.05.220 and 1989 c 175 s 4 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) In addition to other rule-making requirements imposed by law:

             (a) Each agency may adopt rules governing the formal and informal procedures prescribed or authorized by this chapter and rules of practice before the agency, together with forms and instructions. If an agency has not adopted procedural rules under this section, the model rules adopted by the chief administrative law judge under RCW 34.05.250 govern procedures before the agency.

             (b) To assist interested persons dealing with it, each agency shall adopt as a rule a description of its organization, stating the general course and method of its operations and the methods whereby the public may obtain information and make submissions or requests. No person may be required to comply with agency procedure not adopted as a rule as herein required.

             (2) To the extent not prohibited by federal law or regulation, nor prohibited for reasons of confidentiality by state law, each agency shall keep on file for public inspection all final orders, decisions, and opinions in adjudicative proceedings, interpretive statements, policy statements, and any digest or index to those orders, decisions, opinions, or statements prepared by or for the agency.

             (3) No agency order, decision, or opinion is valid or effective against any person, nor may it be invoked by the agency for any purpose, unless it is available for public inspection. This subsection is not applicable in favor of any person who has actual knowledge of the order, decision, or opinion. The agency has the burden of proving that knowledge, but may meet that burden by proving that the person has been properly served with a copy of the order.

             (4) Each agency that is authorized by law to exercise discretion in deciding individual cases is encouraged to formalize the general principles that may evolve from these decisions by adopting the principles as rules that the agency will follow until they are amended or repealed.

             (5) To the extent practicable, any rule proposed or adopted by an agency should be clearly and simply stated, so that it can be understood by those required to comply.


             Sec. 25. RCW 34.05.534 and 1988 c 288 s 507 are each amended to read as follows:

             A person may file a petition for judicial review under this chapter only after exhausting all administrative remedies available within the agency whose action is being challenged, or available within any other agency authorized to exercise administrative review, except:

             (1) A petitioner for judicial review of a rule need not have participated in the rule-making proceeding upon which that rule is based, ((or)) have petitioned for its amendment or repeal, or have appealed a petition for amendment or repeal to the governor;

             (2) A petitioner for judicial review need not exhaust administrative remedies to the extent that this chapter or any other statute states that exhaustion is not required; or

             (3) The court may relieve a petitioner of the requirement to exhaust any or all administrative remedies upon a showing that:

             (a) The remedies would be patently inadequate;

             (b) The exhaustion of remedies would be futile; or

             (c) The grave irreparable harm that would result from having to exhaust administrative remedies would clearly outweigh the public policy requiring exhaustion of administrative remedies.


             Sec. 26. RCW 36.70A.290 and 1991 sp.s. c 32 s 10 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) All requests for review to a growth ((planning)) management hearings board shall be initiated by filing a petition that includes a detailed statement of issues presented for resolution by the board.

             (2) All petitions relating to whether or not an adopted comprehensive plan, development regulation, or permanent amendment thereto, is in compliance with the goals and requirements of this chapter or chapter 43.21C RCW must be filed within sixty days after publication by the legislative bodies of the county or city. The date of publication for a city shall be the date the city publishes the ordinance, or summary of the ordinance, adopting the comprehensive plan or development regulations, or amendment thereto, as is required to be published. Promptly after adoption, a county shall publish a notice that it has adopted the comprehensive plan or development regulations, or amendment thereto. The date of publication for a county shall be the date the county publishes the notice that it has adopted the comprehensive plan or development regulations, or amendment thereto.

             (3) Unless the board dismisses the petition as frivolous or finds that the person filing the petition lacks standing, the board shall, within ten days of receipt of the petition, set a time for hearing the matter.

             (4) The board shall base its decision on the record developed by the city, county, or the state and supplemented with additional evidence if the board determines that such additional evidence would be necessary or of substantial assistance to the board in reaching its decision.

             (5) The board, shall consolidate, when appropriate, all petitions involving the review of the same comprehensive plan or the same development regulation or regulations.


             Sec. 27. RCW 36.70A.110 and 1993 sp.s. c 6 s 2 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) Each county that is required or chooses to plan under RCW 36.70A.040 shall designate an urban growth area or areas within which urban growth shall be encouraged and outside of which growth can occur only if it is not urban in nature. Each city that is located in such a county shall be included within an urban growth area. An urban growth area may include more than a single city. An urban growth area may include territory that is located outside of a city only if such territory already is characterized by urban growth or is adjacent to territory already characterized by urban growth.

             (2) Based upon the population growth management planning population projection made for the county by the office of financial management, the urban growth areas in the county shall include areas and densities sufficient to permit the urban growth that is projected to occur in the county for the succeeding twenty-year period. Each urban growth area shall permit urban densities and shall include greenbelt and open space areas. Within one year of July 1, 1990, each county that as of June 1, 1991, was required or chose to plan under RCW 36.70A.040, shall begin consulting with each city located within its boundaries and each city shall propose the location of an urban growth area. Within sixty days of the date the county legislative authority of a county adopts its resolution of intention or of certification by the office of financial management, all other counties that are required or choose to plan under RCW 36.70A.040 shall begin this consultation with each city located within its boundaries. The county shall attempt to reach agreement with each city on the location of an urban growth area within which the city is located. If such an agreement is not reached with each city located within the urban growth area, the county shall justify in writing why it so designated the area an urban growth area. A city may object formally with the department over the designation of the urban growth area within which it is located. Where appropriate, the department shall attempt to resolve the conflicts, including the use of mediation services.

             (3) Urban growth should be located first in areas already characterized by urban growth that have existing public facility and service capacities to serve such development, and second in areas already characterized by urban growth that will be served by a combination of both existing public facilities and services and any additional needed public facilities and services that are provided by either public or private sources. Further, it is appropriate that urban government services be provided by cities, and urban government services should not be provided in rural areas.

             (4) On or before October 1, 1993, each county that was initially required to plan under RCW 36.70A.040(1) shall adopt development regulations designating interim urban growth areas under this chapter. Within three years and three months of the date the county legislative authority of a county adopts its resolution of intention or of certification by the office of financial management, all other counties that are required or choose to plan under RCW 36.70A.040 shall adopt development regulations designating interim urban growth areas under this chapter. Adoption of the interim urban growth areas may only occur after public notice; public hearing; and compliance with the state environmental policy act, chapter 43.21C RCW, and RCW 36.70A.110. Such action may be appealed to the appropriate growth ((planning)) management hearings board under RCW 36.70A.280. Final urban growth areas shall be adopted at the time of comprehensive plan adoption under this chapter.

             (5) Each county shall include designations of urban growth areas in its comprehensive plan.


             Sec. 28. RCW 36.70A.210 and 1993 sp.s. c 6 s 4 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) The legislature recognizes that counties are regional governments within their boundaries, and cities are primary providers of urban governmental services within urban growth areas. For the purposes of this section, a "county-wide planning policy" is a written policy statement or statements used solely for establishing a county-wide framework from which county and city comprehensive plans are developed and adopted pursuant to this chapter. This framework shall ensure that city and county comprehensive plans are consistent as required in RCW 36.70A.100. Nothing in this section shall be construed to alter the land-use powers of cities.

             (2) The legislative authority of a county that plans under RCW 36.70A.040 shall adopt a county-wide planning policy in cooperation with the cities located in whole or in part within the county as follows:

             (a) No later than sixty calendar days from July 16, 1991, the legislative authority of each county that as of June 1, 1991, was required or chose to plan under RCW 36.70A.040 shall convene a meeting with representatives of each city located within the county for the purpose of establishing a collaborative process that will provide a framework for the adoption of a county-wide planning policy. In other counties that are required or choose to plan under RCW 36.70A.040, this meeting shall be convened no later than sixty days after the date the county adopts its resolution of intention or was certified by the office of financial management.

             (b) The process and framework for adoption of a county-wide planning policy specified in (a) of this subsection shall determine the manner in which the county and the cities agree to all procedures and provisions including but not limited to desired planning policies, deadlines, ratification of final agreements and demonstration thereof, and financing, if any, of all activities associated therewith.

             (c) If a county fails for any reason to convene a meeting with representatives of cities as required in (a) of this subsection, the governor may immediately impose any appropriate sanction or sanctions on the county from those specified under RCW 36.70A.340.

             (d) If there is no agreement by October 1, 1991, in a county that was required or chose to plan under RCW 36.70A.040 as of June 1, 1991, or if there is no agreement within one hundred twenty days of the date the county adopted its resolution of intention or was certified by the office of financial management in any other county that is required or chooses to plan under RCW 36.70A.040, the governor shall first inquire of the jurisdictions as to the reason or reasons for failure to reach an agreement. If the governor deems it appropriate, the governor may immediately request the assistance of the department of community, trade, and economic development to mediate any disputes that preclude agreement. If mediation is unsuccessful in resolving all disputes that will lead to agreement, the governor may impose appropriate sanctions from those specified under RCW 36.70A.340 on the county, city, or cities for failure to reach an agreement as provided in this section. The governor shall specify the reason or reasons for the imposition of any sanction.

             (e) No later than July 1, 1992, the legislative authority of each county that was required or chose to plan under RCW 36.70A.040 as of June 1, 1991, or no later than fourteen months after the date the county adopted its resolution of intention or was certified by the office of financial management the county legislative authority of any other county that is required or chooses to plan under RCW 36.70A.040, shall adopt a county-wide planning policy according to the process provided under this section and that is consistent with the agreement pursuant to (b) of this subsection, and after holding a public hearing or hearings on the proposed county-wide planning policy.

             (3) A county-wide planning policy shall at a minimum, address the following:

             (a) Policies to implement RCW 36.70A.110;

             (b) Policies for promotion of contiguous and orderly development and provision of urban services to such development;

             (c) Policies for siting public capital facilities of a county-wide or state-wide nature;

             (d) Policies for county-wide transportation facilities and strategies;

             (e) Policies that consider the need for affordable housing, such as housing for all economic segments of the population and parameters for its distribution;

             (f) Policies for joint county and city planning within urban growth areas;

             (g) Policies for county-wide economic development and employment; and

             (h) An analysis of the fiscal impact.

             (4) Federal agencies and Indian tribes may participate in and cooperate with the county-wide planning policy adoption process. Adopted county-wide planning policies shall be adhered to by state agencies.

             (5) Failure to adopt a county-wide planning policy that meets the requirements of this section may result in the imposition of a sanction or sanctions on a county or city within the county, as specified in RCW 36.70A.340. In imposing a sanction or sanctions, the governor shall specify the reasons for failure to adopt a county-wide planning policy in order that any imposed sanction or sanctions are fairly and equitably related to the failure to adopt a county-wide planning policy.

             (6) Cities and the governor may appeal an adopted county-wide planning policy to the growth ((planning)) management hearings board within sixty days of the adoption of the county-wide planning policy.

             (7) Multicounty planning policies shall be adopted by two or more counties, each with a population of four hundred fifty thousand or more, with contiguous urban areas and may be adopted by other counties, according to the process established under this section or other processes agreed to among the counties and cities within the affected counties throughout the multicounty region.


             Sec. 29. RCW 36.70A.250 and 1991 sp.s. c 32 s 5 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) There are hereby created three growth ((planning)) management hearings boards for the state of Washington. The boards shall be established as follows:

             (b) A Central Puget Sound board with jurisdictional boundaries including King, Pierce, Snohomish, and Kitsap counties; and

             (c) A Western Washington board with jurisdictional boundaries including all counties that are required or choose to plan under RCW 36.70A.040 and are located west of the crest of the Cascade mountains and are not included in the Central Puget Sound board jurisdictional boundaries. Skamania county, should it be required or choose to plan under RCW 36.70A.040, may elect to be included within the jurisdictional boundaries of either the Western or Eastern board.

             (2) Each board shall only hear matters pertaining to the cities and counties located within its jurisdictional boundaries.

At least one member of each board must be admitted to practice law in this state and at least one member must have been a city or county elected official. Each board shall be appointed by the governor and not more than two members at the time of appointment or during their term shall be members of the same political party. No more than two members at the time of appointment or during their term shall reside in the same county.

             (2) Each member of a board shall be appointed for a term of six years. A vacancy shall be filled by appointment by the governor for the unexpired portion of the term in which the vacancy occurs. The terms of the first three members of a board shall be staggered so that one member is appointed to serve until July 1, 1994, one member until July 1, 1996, and one member until July 1, 1998.


             Sec. 31. RCW 36.70A.280 and 1991 sp.s. c 32 s 9 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) A growth ((planning)) management hearings board shall hear and determine only those petitions alleging either:

             (a) That a state agency, county, or city is not in compliance with the requirements of this chapter, or chapter 43.21C RCW as it relates to plans, regulations, ((and)) or amendments ((thereto)), adopted under RCW 36.70A.040; or

             (b) That the twenty-year growth management planning population projections adopted by the office of financial management pursuant to RCW 43.62.035 should be adjusted.

             (2) A petition may be filed only by the state, a county or city that plans under this chapter, a person who has either appeared before the county or city regarding the matter on which a review is being requested or is certified by the governor within sixty days of filing the request with the board, or a person qualified pursuant to RCW 34.05.530.

             (3) For purposes of this section "person" means any individual, partnership, corporation, association, governmental subdivision or unit thereof, or public or private organization or entity of any character.

             (4) When considering a possible adjustment to a growth management planning population projection prepared by the office of financial management, a board shall consider the implications of any such adjustment to the population forecast for the entire state.

             The rationale for any adjustment that is adopted by a board must be documented and filed with the office of financial management within ten working days after adoption.

             If adjusted by a board, a county growth management planning population projection shall only be used for the planning purposes set forth in this chapter and shall be known as a "board adjusted population projection". None of these changes shall affect the official state and county population forecasts prepared by the office of financial management, which shall continue to be used for state budget and planning purposes.


             Sec. 32. RCW 36.70A.310 and 1991 sp.s. c 32 s 12 are each amended to read as follows:

             A request for review by the state to a growth ((planning)) management hearings board may be made only by the governor, or with the governor's consent the head of an agency, or by the commissioner of public lands as relating to state trust lands, for the review of whether: (1) A county or city that is required or chooses to plan under RCW 36.70A.040 has failed to adopt a comprehensive plan or development regulations, or county-wide planning policies within the time limits established by this chapter; or (2) a county or city that is required or chooses to plan under this chapter has adopted a comprehensive plan, development regulations, or county-wide planning policies, that are not in compliance with the requirements of this chapter.

             The governor may impose a sanction or sanctions specified under RCW 36.70A.340 on: (1) A county or city that fails to designate critical areas, agricultural lands, forest lands, or mineral resource lands under RCW 36.70A.170 by the date such action was required to have been taken; (2) a county or city that fails to adopt development regulations under RCW 36.70A.060 protecting critical areas or conserving agricultural lands, forest lands, or mineral resource lands by the date such action was required to have been taken; (3) a county that fails to designate urban growth areas under RCW 36.70A.110 by the date such action was required to have been taken; and (4) a county or city that fails to adopt its comprehensive plan or development regulations when such actions are required to be taken.

             Imposition of a sanction or sanctions under this section shall be preceded by written findings by the governor, that either the county or city is not proceeding in good faith to meet the requirements of the act; or that the county or city has unreasonably delayed taking the required action. The governor shall consult with and communicate his or her findings to the appropriate growth ((planning)) management hearings board prior to imposing the sanction or sanctions. For those counties or cities that are not required to plan or have not opted in, the governor in imposing sanctions shall consider the size of the jurisdiction relative to the requirements of this chapter and the degree of technical and financial assistance provided.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 34. A new section is added to chapter 35.21 RCW to read as follows:

             (1) Before a city or town adopts a law that regulates the same activity or subject matter as another provision of federal or state law, the city or town shall:

and that the bill do pass as recommended by the Conference Committee.

             Signed by Senators Moore, Sheldon; Representatives R. Meyers, Anderson.


MOTION


             Representative Anderson moved that the House adopt the Report of the Conference Committee on Engrossed Second Substitute House Bill No. 2510 and pass the bill as recommended by the Conference Committee.


             Representatives Anderson, B. Thomas, Mastin and Patterson spoke in favor of the motion and Representatives Dyer, Ballard, Edmondson, Stevens, L. Thomas, Backlund and Forner spoke against it.


             Representative Anderson again spoke in favor of the motion and Representative Dyer again spoke against it. The motion was carried.


FINAL PASSAGE OF HOUSE BILL

AS RECOMMENDED BY THE CONFERENCE COMMITTEE


             The Speaker stated before the House to be final passage of Engrossed Second Substitute House Bill No. 2510 as recommended by the Conference Committee.


POINT OF ORDER


             Representative Padden: Mr. Speaker, the gentleman from the 26th District has accomplished his purpose of getting us to object, but he has strayed far from the bill and is impugning the motives of the gentleman from the 48th District. I'd ask him to restrict his remarks to the bill at hand and not the motives.


POINT OF INQUIRY


             Representative R. Meyers yielded to a question by Representative Anderson.


             Representative Anderson: Would sections 34 and 35 of the bill prohibit cities, towns and counties from adopting ordinances and resolutions that treat an activity or subject matter differently, or more or less stringently, than the state or federal government?


             Representative R. Meyers: No. The requirements to contact other governments are intended to be read reasonably and would only require cities, towns and counties to use reasonable efforts to coordinate their regulations with those of the state and federal governments.


             Representative Anderson: Would sections 34 and 35 prevent a city, town or county from adopting emergency ordinances or resolutions without contacting state and federal agencies?


             Representative R. Meyers: No. A city, town or county would not have to contact a state or federal agencies before adopting emergency ordinances when it is not feasible to do so.


ROLL CALL


             The Clerk called the roll on the final passage of Engrossed Second Substitute House Bill No. 2510 as recommended by the Conference Committee, and the bill passed the House by the following vote: Yeas - 62, Nays - 34, Absent - 0, Excused - 2.

Mr. Speaker:

Mr. President:


We of your Conference Committee, to whom was referred SUBSTITUTE SENATE BILL 6243, an act relating to the capital budget, have had the same under consideration and we recommend that the House amendment (H4427.2) adopted February 26, 1994, not be adopted and that the following Conference Committee striking amendment (attached H-4572.2) be adopted:

             NEW SECTION. Sec. 3. A new section is added to 1993 sp.s. c 22 to read as follows:


             Watershed Restoration Partnership Program: For watershed and fish and wildlife habitat restoration


The appropriation in this section is subject to the following conditions and limitations:

             (1) The legislature finds that it has already appropriated more than $40,000,000 in the 1993-1995 operating and capital budgets for watershed restoration and protection programs and that the federal government has also begun to invest funds in a long-term program to restore and preserve watersheds on nonstate lands in the state. The appropriations in this section shall be deposited in the watershed restoration account, which is hereby created in the state treasury. The intent of the legislature in making this appropriation, and the purposes of the watershed restoration account, are to:

             (a) Restore and protect watersheds in accordance with priorities established to benefit fish stocks in critical or depressed condition as determined by the department of fish and wildlife;

             (b) Avoid, to the greatest extent feasible, additional federal regulation of potentially endangered species;

             (c) Provide a mechanism to accept federal funds dedicated to the state of Washington for watershed restoration;

             (d) Conduct watershed restoration and protection projects primarily on state lands in coordination with federal, local, tribal, and private sector efforts;

             (e) Demonstrate the state's commitment to watershed restoration and protection while seeking additional federal funding; and

             (f) Expedite the expenditure of funds on a scientific basis for fish stock recovery and, to that end, contracted services and other techniques for providing accelerated local construction services should be utilized.

             (2) Except as provided in subsection (4) of this section, this appropriation is solely for capital projects jointly selected by the department of natural resources and fish and wildlife. Funds may be expended for directly associated planning, design and engineering for capital projects, which restore and protect priority watersheds which have been jointly identified, and selected by the department of fish and wildlife and the department of natural resources. Funds from the watershed recovery account shall be expended for projects which conform to priorities for fish stock recovery developed through watershed analysis conducted by the department of natural resources and the department of fish and wildlife's salmon and steelhead stock inventory. Funds expended from the watershed recovery account shall be used for specific projects and not for ongoing operational costs. Examples of the types of eligible projects include, but are not limited to, closure or improvement of forest roads, repair of culverts, clean-up of stream beds, removal of fish barriers, installation of fish screens, fencing of streams, and construction and planting of fish cover.

             (3) Subject to the requirements of subsection (2) of this section, at least $2,000,000 shall be allocated for local initiative grants for environmental and forest restoration projects.

             (4) The department of natural resources and the department of fish and wildlife, in consultation with the watershed coordinating council, the office of financial management, and other appropriate agencies, shall report to the appropriate committees of the legislature by January 1, 1995, on any expenditures made from this appropriation and a plan for future use of the moneys provided in this section. The plan shall include a prioritized list of watersheds and future watershed projects. The plan shall also consider future funding needs, the availability of federal funding, the integration and coordination of existing watershed and protection programs, and the possibility of submitting a referendum to the voters of the state to provide future state funding.

             (5) All projects shall be consistent with any development regulations or comprehensive plans adopted under the growth management act for the project areas. No funds shall be expended to acquire land through condemnation.

             The appropriation in this section is subject to the following conditions and limitations:

             (1) The appropriation is provided solely for the state's share of costs for Grays Harbor dredging, dike construction, bridge relocation, and related expenses.

             (2) Expenditure of moneys from this appropriation is contingent on the authorization of $40,000,000 and an initial appropriation of at least $13,000,000 from the United States army corps of engineers and the authorization of at least $10,000,000 from the local government for the project. Up to $3,500,000 of the local government contribution for the first year on the project may be composed of property, easements, rent adjustments, and other expenditures specifically for the purposes of this appropriation if approved by the army corps of engineers. State funds shall be disbursed at a rate not to exceed one dollar for every four dollars of federal funds expended by the army corps of engineers and one dollar from other nonstate sources.

             (3) Expenditure of moneys from this appropriation is contingent on a cost-sharing arrangement and the execution of a local cooperation agreement between the port of Grays Harbor and the army corps of engineers pursuant to P.L. 99-662, the federal water resources development act of 1986, whereby the corps of engineers will construct the project as authorized by that federal act.

             (4) The port of Grays Harbor shall make the best possible effort to acquire additional project funding from nonstate public grants and/or other governmental sources other than those in subsection (2) of this section. Any money, up to $10,000,000 provided from such sources other than those in subsection (2) of this section, shall be used to reimburse or replace state building construction account money.
