STATEMENT FOR THE JOURNAL


      I am issuing this statement to discuss the status of my illness (AIDS-related non-Hodgkins lymphoma) and to dispel rumors or fears regarding my hospitalization.

      As many people know, I have been undergoing chemotherapy and treatment for non-Hodgkins lymphoma. I am pleased to report that a CAT scan Wednesday showed no sign of the cancer. This was not only good news for me from a medical standpoint, but also from a psychological perspective.

      At this point, I am resting and regaining my strength and energy. I hope to be able to return to my legislative duties in Olympia soon.       I appreciate all the care and concern I have received from Senate Majority Leader Marc Gaspard and colleagues in the Senate.

SENATOR CAL ANDERSON, 34th District

MESSAGE FROM THE HOUSE

April 6, 1995

MR. PRESIDENT:

      The House has passed SUBSTITUTE SENATE BILL NO. 5992 with the following amendment(s):

      Strike everything after the enacting clause and insert the following:

      "NEW SECTION. Sec. 1. (1) The legislature continues to recognize the vital role that work force development efforts play in equipping the state's workers with the skills they need to succeed in an economy that requires higher levels of skill and knowledge. The legislature also recognizes that businesses are increasingly relying on the state's work force development programs and expect them to be responsive to their changing skill requirements. The state benefits from a work force development system that allows firms and workers to be highly competitive in global markets.

      (2) The establishment of the work force training and education coordinating board was an integral step in developing a strategic approach to work force development. For the coordinating board to carry out its intended role, the board must be able to give unambiguous guidance to operating agencies, the governor, and the legislature. It is the intent of this act to clarify the preeminent role intended for the work force training and education coordinating board in coordination and policy development of the state's work force development efforts.

      (3) In the event that federal work force development funds are block granted to the state, it is the intent of the legislature to seek the broadest possible input, from local and state-wide organizations concerned with work force development, on the allocation of the federal funds.

      (4) For purposes of sections 2 and 4 through 6 of this act, the term "program" shall not refer to the activities of individual institutions such as individual community or technical colleges, common schools, service delivery areas, or job service centers; nor shall it refer to individual fields of study or courses.

      NEW SECTION. Sec. 2. (1) The state comprehensive plan for work force training and education shall be updated every two years and presented to the governor and the appropriate legislative policy committees. Following public hearings, the legislature shall, by concurrent resolution, approve or recommend changes to the initial plan and the updates. The plan shall then become the state's work force training policy unless legislation is enacted to alter the policies set forth in the plan.

      (2) The comprehensive plan shall include work force training role and mission statements for the work force development programs of operating agencies represented on the board and sufficient specificity regarding expected actions by the operating agencies to allow them to carry out actions consistent with the comprehensive plan.

      (3) Operating agencies represented on the board shall have operating plans for their work force development efforts that are consistent with the comprehensive plan and that provide detail on implementation steps they will take to carry out their responsibilities under the plan. Each operating agency represented on the board shall provide an annual progress report to the board.

      (4) The comprehensive plan shall include recommendations to the legislature and the governor on the modification, consolidation, initiation, or elimination of work force training and education programs in the state.

      (5) The board shall report to the appropriate legislative policy committees by December 1 of each year on its progress in implementing the comprehensive plan and on the progress of the operating agencies in meeting their obligations under the plan.

      Sec. 3. RCW 28C.18.050 and 1991 c 238 s 6 are each amended to read as follows:

      (1) The board shall be designated as the state board of vocational education as provided for in P.L. 98-524, as amended, and shall perform such functions as is necessary to comply with federal directives pertaining to the provisions of such law.

      (2) The board shall perform the functions of the human resource investment council as provided for in the federal job training partnership act, P.L. 97-300, as amended.

      (3) The board shall provide policy advice for any federal act pertaining to work force development that is not required by state or federal law to be provided by another state body.

      (4) Upon enactment of new federal initiatives relating to work force development, the board shall advise the governor and the legislature on mechanisms for integrating the federal initiatives into the state's work force development system and make recommendations on the legislative or administrative measures necessary to streamline and coordinate state efforts to meet federal guidelines.

      (5) The board shall monitor for consistency with the state comprehensive plan for work force training and education the policies and plans established by the state job training coordinating council, the advisory council on adult education, and the Washington state plan for adult basic education, and provide guidance for making such policies and plans consistent with the state comprehensive plan for work force training and education.

      NEW SECTION. Sec. 4. (1) The board shall specify, by December 31, 1995, the common core data to be collected by the operating agencies of the state training system and the standards for data collection and maintenance required in RCW 28C.18.060(8).

      (2) The minimum standards for program evaluation by operating agencies required in RCW 28C.18.060(9) shall include biennial program evaluations; the first of such evaluations shall be completed by the operating agencies July 1, 1996. The program evaluation of adult basic skills education shall be provided by the advisory council on adult education.

      (3) The board shall complete, by January 1, 1996, its first outcome-based evaluation and, by September 1, 1996, its nonexperimental net-impact and cost-benefit evaluations of the training system. The outcome, net-impact, and cost-benefit evaluations shall for the first evaluations, include evaluations of each of the following programs: Secondary vocational-technical education, work-related adult basic skills education, postsecondary work force training, job training partnership act titles II and III, as well as of the system as a whole.

      (4) The board shall use the results of its outcome, net-impact, and cost-benefit evaluations to develop and make recommendations to the legislature and the governor for the modification, consolidation, initiation, or elimination of work force training and education programs in the state.

      The board shall perform the requirements of this section in cooperation with the operating agencies.

      NEW SECTION. Sec. 5. The board shall, by January 1, 1996, and biennially thereafter: (1) Assess the total demand for training from the perspective of workers, and from the perspective of employers; (2) assess the available supply of publicly and privately provided training which workers and employers are demanding; (3) assess the costs to the state of meeting the demand; and (4) present the legislature and the governor with a strategy for bridging the gap between the supply and the demand for training services.

      NEW SECTION. Sec. 6. The board shall, in cooperation with the operating agencies, by January 1, 1996:

      (1) Identify policies to reduce administrative and other barriers to efficient operation of the state's work force development system and barriers to improved coordination of work force development in the state. These policies shall include waivers of statutory requirements and administrative rules, as well as implementation of one-stop access to work force development services and school-to-work transition;

      (2) Identify ways for operating agencies to share resources, instructors, and curricula through collaboration with other public and private entities to increase training opportunities and reduce costs; and

      (3) Report to the governor and the appropriate legislative committees its recommendations for any statutory changes necessary to enhance operational efficiencies or improve coordination. The board shall work with the operating agencies of the state's work force development system to reduce administrative barriers that do not require statutory changes.

      NEW SECTION. Sec. 7. Sections 2 and 4 through 6 of this act are each added to chapter 28C.18 RCW."

      Correct the title accordingly., and the same are herewith transmitted.

TIMOTHY A. MARTIN, Chief Clerk

      Strike everything after the enacting clause and insert the following:

      "Sec. 1. RCW 18.108.040 and 1991 c 3 s 255 are each amended to read as follows:

      It shall be unlawful to advertise the practice of massage using the term massage or any other term that implies a massage technique or method in any public or private publication or communication by a person not licensed by the secretary as a massage practitioner or without printing in display advertisement the license number of the massage practitioner. Any person who holds a license to practice as a massage practitioner in this state may use the title "licensed massage practitioner" and the abbreviation "L.M.P.". No other persons may assume such title or use such abbreviation or any other word, letters, signs, or figures to indicate that the person using the title is a licensed massage practitioner.

      Sec. 2. RCW 18.108.085 and 1991 c 3 s 259 are each amended to read as follows:

      (1) In addition to any other authority provided by law, the secretary may:

      (a) Adopt rules, in accordance with chapter 34.05 RCW necessary to implement this chapter;

      (b) Set all license, examination, and renewal fees in accordance with RCW 43.70.250;

No further hearing or procedure is required, and the secretary has no discretion with regard to the revocation of the license. The revocation shall be effective even though such conviction may be under appeal, or the time period for such appeal has not elapsed. However, upon presentation of a final appellate decision overturning such conviction or upon completion of a prostitution prevention and intervention program under sections 7 through 15 of this act, the license shall be reinstated, unless grounds for disciplinary action have been found pursuant to chapter 18.130 RCW. Unless an applicant demonstrates that he or she has completed a prostitution prevention and intervention program under sections 7 through 15 of this act, no license may be granted under this chapter to any person who has been convicted of violating RCW 9A.88.030, 9A.88.070, 9A.88.080, or 9A.88.090 or equivalent local ordinances within the eight years immediately preceding the date of application.

The superintendent, or his or her designee, shall summarize the information submitted by the districts and present a summary to the fiscal and education policy committees of the legislature before January 15, 1996. If one or more of the fiscal or policy committees find that adequate progress is not being made in redirecting resources to the classroom, the committee or committees shall recommend to the legislature additional measures that should be taken.

      (5) The process established in subsections (1) through (4) of this section shall be repeated during calendar year 1997, with the summary in subsection (4) of this section being submitted to the legislature before December 31, 1997.

      Strike everything after the enacting clause and insert the following:

      "Sec. 1. RCW 74.13.118 and 1985 c 7 s 138 are each amended to read as follows:

      At least ((annually)) once every five years, the secretary shall review the need of any adoptive parent or parents receiving continuing support pursuant to RCW 26.33.320 and 74.13.100 through 74.13.145, or the need of any parent who is to receive more than one lump sum payment where such payments are to be spaced more than one year apart. ((Such review shall be made not later than the anniversary date of the adoption support agreement.))

      At the time of such ((annual)) review and at other times ((during the year)) when changed conditions, including variations in medical opinions, prognosis and costs, are deemed by the secretary to warrant such action, appropriate adjustments in payments shall be made based upon changes in the needs of the child, in the adoptive parents' income, resources, and expenses for the care of such child or other members of the family, including medical and/or hospitalization expense not otherwise covered by or subject to reimbursement from insurance or other sources of financial assistance.

      Any parent who is a party to such an agreement may at any time in writing request, for reasons set forth in such request, a review of the amount of any payment or the level of continuing payments. Such review shall be begun not later than thirty days from the receipt of such request. Any adjustment may be made retroactive to the date such request was received by the secretary. If such request is not acted on within thirty days after it has been received by the secretary, such parent may invoke his rights under the hearing provisions set forth in RCW 74.13.127.

      Sec. 2. RCW 74.13.121 and 1985 c 7 s 139 are each amended to read as follows:

      So long as any adoptive parent is receiving support pursuant to RCW 26.33.320 and 74.13.100 through 74.13.145 he or she shall, ((not later than two weeks after it is filed with the United States government)) upon request, file with the secretary a copy of his or her federal income tax return. Such return and any information thereon shall be marked by the secretary "confidential", shall be used by the secretary solely for the purposes of RCW 26.33.320 and 74.13.100 through 74.13.145, and shall not be revealed to any other person, institution or agency, public or private, including agencies of the United States government, other than a superior court, judge or commissioner before whom a petition for adoption of a child being supported or to be supported pursuant to RCW 26.33.320 and 74.13.100 through 74.13.145 is then pending.

      In carrying on the review process authorized by RCW 26.33.320 and 74.13.100 through 74.13.145 the secretary may require the adoptive parent or parents to disclose such additional financial information, not privileged, as may enable him or her to make determinations and adjustments in support to the end that the purposes and policies of this state expressed in RCW 74.13.100 may be carried out, provided that no adoptive parent or parents shall be obliged, by virtue of this section, to sign any agreement or other writing waiving any constitutional right or privilege nor to admit to his or her home any agent, employee, or official of any department of this state, or of the United States government.

      Such information shall be marked "confidential" by the secretary, shall be used by him or her solely for the purposes of RCW 26.33.320 and 74.13.100 through 74.13.145, and shall not be revealed to any other person, institution, or agency, public or private, including agencies of the United States government other than a superior court judge or commission before whom a petition for adoption of a child being supported or to be supported pursuant to RCW 26.33.320 and 74.13.100 through 74.13.145 is then pending.

      NEW SECTION. Sec. 3. The legislature recognizes that some prospective adoptive parents may not have finalized the adoption of a foster child in their care because the adoption support program as it is presently structured may offer special children with complex needs fewer necessary services than the foster care program provides them through exceptional cost plans. Enhancement of the adoption support program could increase the likelihood that such special needs children could be adopted.

      The department of social and health services is directed to conduct a study to determine the costs, program impact, and appropriateness of extending exceptional cost rate foster care plans for special needs children to the adoption support program. The department of social and health services shall complete the study and report its findings to the legislature no later than September 1, 1995."

The legislature encourages the school districts that are ready to use the reading assessment system developed by the commission on student learning under RCW 28A.630.885 to use the system and the information provided from the assessments as tools to evaluate instructional practices and to initiate appropriate educational support for students who have not mastered the essential academic learning requirements in reading.

      (1) The elementary grades assessment developed by the commission on student learning under RCW 28A.630.885 shall be designed to assess students for reading literacy skills no later than the spring of third grade and at other appropriate grade levels.

      (1) To the extent funds are appropriated, the office of the superintendent of public instruction and the commission on student learning shall jointly establish a pilot program for the reading assessment system for elementary grades developed under RCW 28A.630.885. The program shall provide additional student learning improvement grants for elementary schools in one small school district, one medium-sized school district, and one large school district that are each ready to begin implementing the reading assessment system. The purpose of the grants is to provide funds for additional time and resources for site-based planning activities and staff development and planning to support the implementation of the reading assessment system and to improve reading literacy of students.

Funds from the grant may be used to pay for staff development and planning for certificated and classified staff and site-based planning activities to implement the reading assessment system and improve reading literacy. Use of the funds shall be governed by RCW 28A.300.138.

      (3) Districts participating in the reading assessment pilot program shall report the results of their participation to the commission on student learning.

      (b) To accomplish these purposes the institutes may, within funds appropriated for this purpose:

      (i) Enter joint operating agreements with state universities or other institutions of higher education to accomplish the placement and training of students and faculty in psychiatry, psychology, social work, occupational therapy, nursing, and other relevant professions at the state hospitals and community mental health programs;

      (ii) Design and implement clinical research projects to improve the quality and effectiveness of state hospital services and operations;

      (iii) Enter into agreements with community mental health service providers to accomplish the exchange of professional staff between the state hospitals and community mental health service providers;

      "WHEREAS, The federal government, in an effort to protect the national security of the United States, established the Hanford site in Central Washington in 1943; and

      WHEREAS, During the course of the past five decades, many dangerous, toxic, and nuclear wastes were disposed of or stored at the site; and

      WHEREAS, Two-thirds of the volume of nuclear waste in the entire United States is stored at Hanford; and

      WHEREAS, The Department of Energy has been tasked with overseeing the cleanup of the site; and

      WHEREAS, Millions of dollars have been expended at Hanford for environmental cleanup; and

      WHEREAS, The United States General Accounting Office estimates that a significant amount of the cleanup funds have been expended on administrative and legal activities; and

      WHEREAS, The federal government agreed under the "Tri-Party Agreement" to a series of milestones to clean up the site; and

      WHEREAS, Key milestones in this agreement cannot be met if the Department of Energy does not follow through on its proposal to reduce cleanup funding at the Hanford site; and

      WHEREAS, The federal government has now announced that four thousand five hundred jobs will be eliminated as a result of these cuts; and

      WHEREAS, These cuts will delay the cleanup and increase its cost.

      NOW, THEREFORE, Your Memorialists respectfully pray that the federal government work with Washington State and local officials to eliminate duplicative Department of Energy orders, streamline paperwork requirements, and otherwise reduce unnecessary costs so that full and adequate funding may be available for environmental cleanup; that it begin immediately to construct the facilities necessary to implement cleanup of the Hanford site; and that it maintain its commitment to funding and implementing all the key milestones of the "Tri-Party Agreement."

      If, after a fact-finding hearing pursuant to RCW 13.34.110, it has been proven by a preponderance of the evidence that the child is dependent within the meaning of RCW 13.34.030; after consideration of the predisposition report prepared pursuant to RCW 13.34.110 and after a disposition hearing has been held pursuant to RCW 13.34.110, the court shall enter an order of disposition pursuant to this section.

      (1) The court shall order one of the following dispositions of the case:

      (a) Order a disposition other than removal of the child from his or her home, which shall provide a program designed to alleviate the immediate danger to the child, to mitigate or cure any damage the child has already suffered, and to aid the parents so that the child will not be endangered in the future. In selecting a program, the court should choose those services that least interfere with family autonomy, provided that the services are adequate to protect the child.

      (b) Order that the child be removed from his or her home and ordered into the custody, control, and care of a relative or the department of social and health services or a licensed child placing agency for placement in a foster family home or group care facility licensed pursuant to chapter 74.15 RCW or in a home not required to be licensed pursuant to chapter 74.15 RCW. Unless there is reasonable cause to believe that the safety or welfare of the child would be jeopardized or that efforts to reunite the parent and child will be hindered, such child shall be placed with a grandparent, brother, sister, stepbrother, stepsister, uncle, aunt, or first cousin with whom the child has a relationship and is comfortable, and who is willing and available to care for the child. Placement of the child with a relative under this subsection shall be given preference by the court. An order for out-of-home placement may be made only if the court finds that reasonable efforts have been made to prevent or eliminate the need for removal of the child from the child's home and to make it possible for the child to return home, specifying the services that have been provided to the child and the child's parent, guardian, or legal custodian, and that preventive services have been offered or provided and have failed to prevent the need for out-of-home placement, unless the health, safety, and welfare of the child cannot be protected adequately in the home, and that:

      (i) There is no parent or guardian available to care for such child;

      (ii) The parent, guardian, or legal custodian is not willing to take custody of the child;

      (iii) A manifest danger exists that the child will suffer serious abuse or neglect if the child is not removed from the home and an order under RCW 26.44.063 would not protect the child from danger; or

      (iv) The extent of the child's disability is such that the parent, guardian, or legal custodian is unable to provide the necessary care for the child and the parent, guardian, or legal custodian has determined that the child would benefit from placement outside of the home.

      (2) If the court has ordered a child removed from his or her home pursuant to subsection (1)(b) of this section, the court may order that a petition seeking termination of the parent and child relationship be filed if the court finds it is recommended by the supervising agency, that it is in the best interests of the child and that it is not reasonable to provide further services to reunify the family because the existence of aggravated circumstances make it unlikely that services will effectuate the return of the child to the child's parents in the near future. In determining whether aggravated circumstances exist, the court shall consider one or more of the following:

      (a) Conviction of the parent of rape of the child in the first, second, or third degree as defined in RCW 9A.44.073, 9A.44.076, and 9A.44.079;

      (b) Conviction of the parent of criminal mistreatment of the child in the first or second degree as defined in RCW 9A.42.020 and 9A.42.030;

      (c) Conviction of the parent of one of the following assault crimes, when the child is the victim: Assault in the first or second degree as defined in RCW 9A.36.011 and 9A.36.021 or assault of a child in the first or second degree as defined in RCW 9A.36.120 or 9A.36.130;

      (d) Conviction of the parent of murder, manslaughter, or homicide by abuse of the child's other parent, sibling, or another child;

      (e) A finding by a court that a parent is a sexually violent predator as defined in RCW 71.09.020;

      (f) Failure of the parent to complete available treatment ordered under this chapter or the equivalent laws of another state, where such failure has resulted in a prior termination of parental rights to another child and the parent has failed to effect significant change in the interim.

      (3) Whenever a child is ordered removed from the child's home, the agency charged with his or her care shall provide the court with:

      (a) A permanency plan of care that shall identify one of the following outcomes as a primary goal and may identify additional outcomes as alternative goals: Return of the child to the home of the child's parent, guardian, or legal custodian; adoption; guardianship; or long-term relative or foster care, until the child is age eighteen, with a written agreement between the parties and the care provider.

      (b) Unless the court has ordered, pursuant to subsection (2) of this section, that a termination petition be filed, a specific plan as to where the child will be placed, what steps will be taken to return the child home, and what actions the agency will take to maintain parent-child ties. All aspects of the plan shall include the goal of achieving permanence for the child.

      (i) The agency plan shall specify what services the parents will be offered in order to enable them to resume custody, what requirements the parents must meet in order to resume custody, and a time limit for each service plan and parental requirement.

      (ii) The agency shall be required to encourage the maximum parent-child contact possible, including regular visitation and participation by the parents in the care of the child while the child is in placement. Visitation may be limited or denied only if the court determines that such limitation or denial is necessary to protect the child's health, safety, or welfare.

      (iii) A child shall be placed as close to the child's home as possible, preferably in the child's own neighborhood, unless the court finds that placement at a greater distance is necessary to promote the child's or parents' well-being.

      (iv) The agency charged with supervising a child in placement shall provide all reasonable services that are available within the agency, or within the community, or those services which the department of social and health services has existing contracts to purchase. It shall report to the court if it is unable to provide such services.

      (c) If the court has ordered, pursuant to subsection (2) of this section, that a termination petition be filed, a specific plan as to where the child will be placed, what steps will be taken to achieve permanency for the child, services to be offered or provided to the child, and, if visitation would be in the best interests of the child, a recommendation to the court regarding visitation between parent and child pending a fact-finding hearing on the termination petition. The agency shall not be required to develop a plan of services for the parents or provide services to the parents.

      (4) If there is insufficient information at the time of the disposition hearing upon which to base a determination regarding the suitability of a proposed placement with a relative, the child shall remain in foster care and the court shall direct the supervising agency to conduct necessary background investigations as provided in chapter 74.15 RCW and report the results of such investigation to the court within thirty days. However, if such relative appears otherwise suitable and competent to provide care and treatment, the criminal history background check need not be completed before placement, but as soon as possible after placement. Any placements with relatives, pursuant to this section, shall be contingent upon cooperation by the relative with the agency case plan and compliance with court orders related to the care and supervision of the child including, but not limited to, court orders regarding parent-child contacts and any other conditions imposed by the court. Noncompliance with the case plan or court order shall be grounds for removal of the child from the relative's home, subject to review by the court.

      (5) Except for children whose cases are reviewed by a citizen review board under chapter 13.70 RCW, the status of all children found to be dependent shall be reviewed by the court at least every six months from the beginning date of the placement episode or the date dependency is established, whichever is first, at a hearing in which it shall be determined whether court supervision should continue. The review shall include findings regarding the agency and parental completion of disposition plan requirements, and if necessary, revised permanency time limits.

      (a) A child shall not be returned home at the review hearing unless the court finds that a reason for removal as set forth in this section no longer exists. The parents, guardian, or legal custodian shall report to the court the efforts they have made to correct the conditions which led to removal. If a child is returned, casework supervision shall continue for a period of six months, at which time there shall be a hearing on the need for continued intervention.

      (b) If the child is not returned home, the court shall establish in writing:

      (i) Whether reasonable services have been provided to or offered to the parties to facilitate reunion, specifying the services provided or offered;

      (ii) Whether the child has been placed in the least-restrictive setting appropriate to the child's needs, including whether consideration and preference has been given to placement with the child's relatives;

      (iii) Whether there is a continuing need for placement and whether the placement is appropriate;

      (iv) Whether there has been compliance with the case plan by the child, the child's parents, and the agency supervising the placement;

      (v) Whether progress has been made toward correcting the problems that necessitated the child's placement in out-of-home care;

      (vi) Whether the parents have visited the child and any reasons why visitation has not occurred or has been infrequent;

      (vii) Whether additional services are needed to facilitate the return of the child to the child's parents; if so, the court shall order that reasonable services be offered specifying such services; and

      (viii) The projected date by which the child will be returned home or other permanent plan of care will be implemented.

      (c) The court at the review hearing may order that a petition seeking termination of the parent and child relationship be filed."

POINT OF ORDER


      Senator Owen: "I believe that this amendment expands the scope of the bill and I would ask you to rule appropriately.

      (2) On or before December 31, 1981, the department shall adjust, by rule under chapter 34.05 RCW, the forest land values contained in subsection (1) of this section in accordance with this subsection, and shall certify these adjusted values to the county assessor for his or her use in preparing the assessment rolls as of January 1, 1982. For the adjustment to be made on or before December 31, 1981, for use in the 1982 assessment year, the department shall:

      (a) Divide the aggregate value of all timber harvested within the state between July 1, 1976, and June 30, 1981, by the aggregate harvest volume for the same period, as determined from the harvester excise tax returns filed with the department under RCW 82.04.291 and 84.33.071; and

      (b) Divide the aggregate value of all timber harvested within the state between July 1, 1975, and June 30, 1980, by the aggregate harvest volume for the same period, as determined from the harvester excise tax returns filed with the department under RCW 82.04.291 and 84.33.071; and

      (c) Adjust the forest land values contained in subsection (1) of this section by a percentage equal to one-half of the percentage change in the average values of harvested timber reflected by comparing the resultant values calculated under (a) and (b) of this subsection.

      For the adjustments to be made on or before December 31, 1982, and each succeeding year thereafter, the same procedure shall be followed as described in this subsection utilizing harvester excise tax returns filed under RCW 82.04.291 and this chapter except that this adjustment shall be made to the prior year's adjusted value, and the five-year periods for calculating average harvested timber values shall be successively one year more recent.

      (3) In preparing the assessment roll for 1972 and each year thereafter, the assessor shall enter as the true and fair value of each parcel of forest land the appropriate grade value certified to him or her by the department of revenue, and he or she shall compute the assessed value of such land by using the same assessment ratio he or she applies generally in computing the assessed value of other property in his or her county. In preparing the assessment roll for 1975 and each year thereafter, the assessor shall assess and value as classified forest land all forest land that is not then designated pursuant to RCW 84.33.120(4) or 84.33.130 and shall make a notation of such classification upon the assessment and tax rolls. On or before January 15 of the first year in which such notation is made, the assessor shall mail notice by certified mail to the owner that such land has been classified as forest land and is subject to the compensating tax imposed by this section. If the owner desires not to have such land assessed and valued as classified forest land, he or she shall give the assessor written notice thereof on or before March 31 of such year and the assessor shall remove from the assessment and tax rolls the classification notation entered pursuant to this subsection, and shall thereafter assess and value such land in the manner provided by law other than this chapter 84.33 RCW.

      (4) In any year commencing with 1972, an owner of land which is assessed and valued by the assessor other than pursuant to the procedures set forth in RCW 84.33.110 and this section, and which has, in the immediately preceding year, been assessed and valued by the assessor as forest land, may appeal to the county board of equalization by filing an application with the board in the manner prescribed in subsection (2) of RCW 84.33.130. The county board shall afford the applicant an opportunity to be heard if the application so requests and shall act upon the application in the manner prescribed in subsection (3) of RCW 84.33.130.

      (5) Land that has been assessed and valued as classified forest land as of any year commencing with 1975 assessment year or earlier shall continue to be so assessed and valued until removal of classification by the assessor only upon the occurrence of one of the following events:

      (a) Receipt of notice from the owner to remove such land from classification as forest land;

      (b) Sale or transfer to an ownership making such land exempt from ad valorem taxation;

      (c) Determination by the assessor, after giving the owner written notice and an opportunity to be heard, that, because of actions taken by the owner, such land is no longer primarily devoted to and used for growing and harvesting timber. However, land shall not be removed from classification if a governmental agency, organization, or other recipient identified in subsection (9) of this section as exempt from the payment of compensating tax has manifested its intent in writing or by other official action to acquire a property interest in classified forest land by means of a transaction that qualifies for an exemption under subsection (9) of this section. The governmental agency, organization, or recipient shall annually provide the assessor of the county in which the land is located reasonable evidence in writing of the intent to acquire the classified land as long as the intent continues or within sixty days of a request by the assessor. The assessor may not request this evidence more than once in a calendar year;

      (d) Determination that a higher and better use exists for such land than growing and harvesting timber after giving the owner written notice and an opportunity to be heard;

      (e) Sale or transfer of all or a portion of such land to a new owner, unless the new owner has signed a notice of forest land classification continuance(([,])), except transfer to an owner who is an heir or devisee of a deceased owner, shall not, by itself, result in removal of classification. The signed notice of continuance shall be attached to the real estate excise tax affidavit provided for in RCW ((82.45.120, as now or hereafter amended)) 82.45.150. The notice of continuance shall be on a form prepared by the department of revenue. If the notice of continuance is not signed by the new owner and attached to the real estate excise tax affidavit, all compensating taxes calculated pursuant to subsection (7) of this section shall become due and payable by the seller or transferor at time of sale. The county auditor shall not accept an instrument of conveyance of classified forest land for filing or recording unless the new owner has signed the notice of continuance or the compensating tax has been paid. The seller, transferor, or new owner may appeal the new assessed valuation calculated under subsection (7) of this section to the county board of equalization. Jurisdiction is hereby conferred on the county board of equalization to hear these appeals.

      The assessor shall remove classification pursuant to ((subsections)) (c) or (d) ((above)) of this subsection prior to September 30 of the year prior to the assessment year for which termination of classification is to be effective. Removal of classification as forest land upon occurrence of ((subsection)) (a), (b), (d), or (e) ((above)) of this subsection shall apply only to the land affected, and upon occurrence of ((subsection)) (c) of this subsection shall apply only to the actual area of land no longer primarily devoted to and used for growing and harvesting timber: PROVIDED, That any remaining classified forest land meets necessary definitions of forest land pursuant to RCW 84.33.100 as now or hereafter amended.

      (6) Within thirty days after such removal of classification as forest land, the assessor shall notify the owner in writing setting forth the reasons for such removal. The owner of such land shall thereupon have the right to apply for designation of such land as forest land pursuant to subsection (4) of this section or RCW 84.33.130. The seller, transferor, or owner may appeal such removal to the county board of equalization.

      (7) Unless the owner successfully applies for designation of such land or unless the removal is reversed on appeal, notation of removal from classification shall immediately be made upon the assessment and tax rolls, and commencing on January 1 of the year following the year in which the assessor made such notation, such land shall be assessed on the same basis as real property is assessed generally in that county. Except as provided in subsections (5)(e) and (9) of this section and unless the assessor shall not have mailed notice of classification pursuant to subsection (3) of this section, a compensating tax shall be imposed which shall be due and payable to the county treasurer thirty days after the owner is notified of the amount of the compensating tax. As soon as possible, the assessor shall compute the amount of such compensating tax and mail notice to the owner of the amount thereof and the date on which payment is due. The amount of such compensating tax shall be equal to((: (a))) the difference, if any, between the amount of tax last levied on such land as forest land and an amount equal to the new assessed valuation of such land multiplied by the dollar rate of the last levy extended against such land, multiplied by (((b))) a number, in no event greater than ten, equal to the number of years, commencing with assessment year 1975, for which such land was assessed and valued as forest land.

      (8) Compensating tax, together with applicable interest thereon, shall become a lien on such land which shall attach at the time such land is removed from classification as forest land and shall have priority to and shall be fully paid and satisfied before any recognizance, mortgage, judgment, debt, obligation or responsibility to or with which such land may become charged or liable. Such lien may be foreclosed upon expiration of the same period after delinquency and in the same manner provided by law for foreclosure of liens for delinquent real property taxes as provided in RCW 84.64.050. Any compensating tax unpaid on its due date shall thereupon become delinquent. From the date of delinquency until paid, interest shall be charged at the same rate applied by law to delinquent ad valorem property taxes.

      (9) The compensating tax specified in subsection (7) of this section shall not be imposed if the removal of classification as forest land pursuant to subsection (5) of this section resulted solely from:

      (a) Transfer to a government entity in exchange for other forest land located within the state of Washington;

      (b) A taking through the exercise of the power of eminent domain, or sale or transfer to an entity having the power of eminent domain in anticipation of the exercise of such power;

      (c) A donation of fee title, development rights, or the right to harvest timber, to a government agency or organization qualified under RCW 84.34.210 and 64.04.130 for the purposes enumerated in those sections, or the sale or transfer of fee title to a governmental entity or a nonprofit nature conservancy corporation, as defined in RCW 64.04.130, exclusively for the protection and conservation of lands recommended for state natural area preserve purposes by the natural heritage council and natural heritage plan as defined in chapter 79.70 RCW: PROVIDED, That at such time as the land is not used for the purposes enumerated, the compensating tax specified in subsection (7) of this section shall be imposed upon the current owner;

      (d) The sale or transfer of fee title to the parks and recreation commission for park and recreation purposes.

      (10) With respect to any land that has been designated prior to May 6, 1974, pursuant to RCW 84.33.120(4) or 84.33.130, the assessor may, prior to January 1, 1975, on his or her own motion or pursuant to petition by the owner, change, without imposition of the compensating tax provided under RCW 84.33.140, the status of such designated land to classified forest land.

      Sec. 2. RCW 84.33.140 and 1992 c 69 s 2 are each amended to read as follows:

      (1) When land has been designated as forest land pursuant to RCW 84.33.120(4) or 84.33.130, a notation of such designation shall be made each year upon the assessment and tax rolls, a copy of the notice of approval together with the legal description or assessor's tax lot numbers for such land shall, at the expense of the applicant, be filed by the assessor in the same manner as deeds are recorded, and such land shall be graded and valued pursuant to RCW 84.33.110 and 84.33.120 until removal of such designation by the assessor upon occurrence of any of the following:

      (a) Receipt of notice from the owner to remove such designation;

      (b) Sale or transfer to an ownership making such land exempt from ad valorem taxation;

      (c) Sale or transfer of all or a portion of such land to a new owner, unless the new owner has signed a notice of forest land designation continuance(([,])), except transfer to an owner who is an heir or devisee of a deceased owner, shall not, by itself, result in removal of classification. The signed notice of continuance shall be attached to the real estate excise tax affidavit provided for in RCW ((82.45.120, as now or hereafter amended)) 82.45.150. The notice of continuance shall be on a form prepared by the department of revenue. If the notice of continuance is not signed by the new owner and attached to the real estate excise tax affidavit, all compensating taxes calculated pursuant to subsection (3) of this section shall become due and payable by the seller or transferor at time of sale. The county auditor shall not accept an instrument of conveyance of designated forest land for filing or recording unless the new owner has signed the notice of continuance or the compensating tax has been paid. The seller, transferor, or new owner may appeal the new assessed valuation calculated under subsection (3) of this section to the county board of equalization. Jurisdiction is hereby conferred on the county board of equalization to hear these appeals;

      (d) Determination by the assessor, after giving the owner written notice and an opportunity to be heard, that: (i) Such land is no longer primarily devoted to and used for growing and harvesting timber((,)). However, land shall not be removed from designation if a governmental agency, organization, or other recipient identified in subsection (5) of this section as exempt from the payment of compensating tax has manifested its intent in writing or by other official action to acquire a property interest in designated forest land by means of a transaction that qualifies for an exemption under subsection (5) of this section. The governmental agency, organization, or recipient shall annually provide the assessor of the county in which the land is located reasonable evidence in writing of the intent to acquire the designated land as long as the intent continues or within sixty days of a request by the assessor. The assessor may not request this evidence more than once in a calendar year;

      (ii) ((such)) The owner has failed to comply with a final administrative or judicial order with respect to a violation of the restocking, forest management, fire protection, insect and disease control and forest debris provisions of Title 76 RCW or any applicable regulations thereunder((,)); or

      (iii) Restocking has not occurred to the extent or within the time specified in the application for designation of such land.

Removal of designation upon occurrence of any of ((subsections)) (a) through (c) ((above)) of this subsection shall apply only to the land affected, and upon occurrence of ((subsection)) (d) of this subsection shall apply only to the actual area of land no longer primarily devoted to and used for growing and harvesting timber, without regard to other land that may have been included in the same application and approval for designation: PROVIDED, That any remaining designated forest land meets necessary definitions of forest land pursuant to RCW 84.33.100 as now or hereafter amended.

      (2) Within thirty days after such removal of designation of forest land, the assessor shall notify the owner in writing, setting forth the reasons for such removal. The seller, transferor, or owner may appeal such removal to the county board of equalization.

      (3) Unless the removal is reversed on appeal a copy of the notice of removal with notation of the action, if any, upon appeal, together with the legal description or assessor's tax lot numbers for the land removed from designation shall, at the expense of the applicant, be filed by the assessor in the same manner as deeds are recorded, and commencing on January 1 of the year following the year in which the assessor mailed such notice, such land shall be assessed on the same basis as real property is assessed generally in that county.

The amount of such compensating tax shall be equal to((: (a))) the difference between the amount of tax last levied on such land as forest land and an amount equal to the new assessed valuation of such land multiplied by the dollar rate of the last levy extended against such land, multiplied by (((b))) a number, in no event greater than ten, equal to the number of years for which such land was designated as forest land.

      (4) Compensating tax, together with applicable interest thereon, shall become a lien on such land which shall attach at the time such land is removed from designation as forest land and shall have priority to and shall be fully paid and satisfied before any recognizance, mortgage, judgment, debt, obligation or responsibility to or with which such land may become charged or liable. Such lien may be foreclosed upon expiration of the same period after delinquency and in the same manner provided by law for foreclosure of liens for delinquent real property taxes as provided in RCW 84.64.050. Any compensating tax unpaid on its due date shall thereupon become delinquent. From the date of delinquency until paid, interest shall be charged at the same rate applied by law to delinquent ad valorem property taxes.

      (5) The compensating tax specified in subsection (3) of this section shall not be imposed if the removal of designation pursuant to subsection (1) of this section resulted solely from:

      (a) Transfer to a government entity in exchange for other forest land located within the state of Washington;

      (b) A taking through the exercise of the power of eminent domain, or sale or transfer to an entity having the power of eminent domain in anticipation of the exercise of such power;
