Certified abstracts furnished to prosecutors and alcohol/drug assessment or treatment agencies shall also indicate whether a recorded violation is an alcohol-related offense as defined in RCW 46.01.260(2) that was originally charged as one of the alcohol-related offenses designated in RCW 46.01.260(2)(a)(i).

             The abstract provided to the insurance company shall exclude any information, except that related to the commission of misdemeanors or felonies by the individual, pertaining to law enforcement officers or fire fighters as defined in RCW 41.26.030, or any officer of the Washington state patrol, while driving official vehicles in the performance of occupational duty.

If the person appears in person before the court or submits by mail written proof that he or she obtained a valid license after being cited, the court shall reduce the penalty to fifty dollars.

             (2) For the purposes of obtaining a valid driver's license, a resident is a person who manifests an intent to live or be located in this state on more than a temporary or transient basis. Evidence of residency includes but is not limited to:

Programs which are not included within the term "Washington public assistance programs" pursuant to the above criteria include, but are not limited to the food stamp program under the federal food stamp act of 1964; programs under the child nutrition act of 1966, 42 U.S.C. Secs. 1771 through 1788; and aid to families with dependent children, 42 U.S.C. Secs. 601 through 606.

             (4) No person shall receive a driver's license unless and until he or she surrenders to the department all valid driver's licenses in his or her possession issued to him or her by any other jurisdiction. The department shall establish a procedure to invalidate the surrendered photograph license and return it to the person. The invalidated license, along with the valid temporary Washington driver's license provided for in RCW 46.20.055(3), shall be accepted as proper identification. The department shall notify the issuing department that the licensee is now licensed in a new jurisdiction. No person shall be permitted to have more than one valid driver's license at any time.

             (5) New Washington residents are allowed thirty days from the date they become residents as defined in this section to procure a valid Washington driver's license.

             (6) Any person licensed as a driver under this chapter may exercise the privilege thereby granted upon all streets and highways in this state and shall not be required to obtain any other license to exercise such privilege by any county, municipal or local board, or body having authority to adopt local police regulations.


             Sec. 6. RCW 46.63.020 and 1995 1st sp.s. c 16 s 1, 1995 c 332 s 16, and 1995 c 256 s 25 are each reenacted and amended to read as follows:

POINT OF ORDER


             Representative Rust: Thank you Mr. Speaker. I would request a ruling on the scope and object on the committee amendment to Substitute Senate Bill No. 6637.


             There being no objection, the House deferred further consideration of Substitute Senate Bill No. 6637 and the bill held it's place on the second reading calendar.


             There being no objection, the House resumed consideration of Senate Bill No. 6672.


SPEAKER'S RULING


             Representative Tokuda, the Speaker is prepared to rule on your point of order which requested a scope and object ruling on amendment 432 to Senate Bill No. 6672.

             The title of the bill is: AN ACT Relating to reports of abuse of children and adult dependent and developmentally disabled person." The title is broad. The act amends RCW 26.44.030 and adds department of correction personnel to the list of professionals who must report suspected cases of abuse or neglect.

             The act does not alter in any manner how reports of suspected abuse are made or kept.

             Amendment 432 would not only amend RCW 26.44.030, as does the Senate Bill and the committee amendment, but would go on to amend RCW 26.44.035, 26.44.060, and RCW 10.97.060. These other sections are amended for purposes unrelated to and not limited to reports of suspected abuse that might be made by department of corrections personnel.

             Amendment 432 is beyond the object of Senate Bill No. 6672.


             Representative Tokuda, your point of order is well taken.


             There being no objection, the rules were suspended, the second reading considered the third and the bill was placed on final passage.


             Representatives Cooke and Tokuda spoke in favor of passage of the bill.


MOTION


             On motion of Representative Kessler, Representative H. Sommers was excused.


             The Speaker (Representative Horn presiding) stated the question before the House to be final passage of Senate Bill No. 6672 as amended by the House.


ROLL CALL


             The Clerk called the roll on the final passage of Senate Bill No. 6672 as amended by the House and the bill passed the House by the following vote: Yeas - 93, Nays - 0, Absent - 0, Excused - 5.

             Voting yea: Representatives Appelwick, Backlund, Ballasiotes, Basich, Beeksma, Benton, Blanton, Boldt, Brown, Brumsickle, Buck, Cairnes, Carlson, Carrell, Casada, Chandler, Chappell, Chopp, Clements, Cody, Cole, Conway, Cooke, Costa, Crouse, Dellwo, Delvin, Dickerson, Dyer, Elliot, Fisher, R., Fuhrman, Goldsmith, Grant, Hankins, Hargrove, Hatfield, Hickel, Honeyford, Horn, Hymes, Jacobsen, Johnson, Keiser, Kessler, Koster, Lambert, Linville, Lisk, Mason, Mastin, McMahan, McMorris, Mitchell, Morris, Mulliken, Murray, Ogden, Patterson, Pelesky, Poulsen, Quall, Radcliff, Reams, Regala, Robertson, Romero, Rust, Scheuerman, Schmidt, D., Schmidt, K., Schoesler, Scott, Sehlin, Sheahan, Sheldon, Sherstad, Silver, Skinner, Smith, Sommers, D., Sterk, Stevens, Talcott, Thomas, B., Thomas, L., Thompson, Tokuda, Valle, Van Luven, Veloria, Wolfe and Mr. Speaker - 93.

             Excused: Representatives Campbell, Foreman, Huff, Pennington and Sommers, H. - 5.


             Senate Bill No. 6672 as amended by the House, having received the constitutional majority, was declared passed.


             There being no objection, the House resumed consideration of Substitute Senate Bill No. 6078.


SPEAKER'S RULING


             Representative Ogden, the Speaker is prepared to rule on your point of order which raised scope and object objections to the transportation committee amendments to Substitute Senate Bill No. 6078.

             The title of Substitute Senate Bill No. 6078 is: AN ACT Relating to the public presentation of information regarding regional transit authority projects. The title is not broad.

             The bill and the committee amendment both amend RCW 81.104.140.

             That chapter of law deals with High capacity transportation systems. As explained in both the Senate and House Bill reports the chapter deals with all transit agencies that are authorized to impose voter approved taxes to develop a high capacity transportation system.

             Under the Senate Bill as introduced and as passed, all transit agencies subject to chapter 81.104 RCW, not just regional transit authorities, were relieved of the duty to publish a broacher describing their proposal. A review of the Senate Bill report shows that transit agencies, other than regional transit authorities, understood that this act applied to them and testified in favor of the act.

             The Senate transportation committee added language that said an Regional transportation authority could not assume or imply the availability of state or federal funds. That amendment was adopted and became Substitute Senate Bill No. 6078.

             The House transportation committee amendment simply applies the same restriction that the Senate added to regional transit authorities to any other transit agencies subject to RCW 81.104.140.

             As noted above, transit agencies, other than regional transit authorities, were in Senate Bill No. 6078 as it was introduced and passed by the Senate.

             The Speaker finds that the House committee amendment is not beyond the scope and object of Substitute Senate Bill No. 6078.


             Representative Ogden, your point of order is not well taken.


             There being no objection the committee amendment was moved.


             Representative Ogden moved the adoption of the following amendment to the committee amendment by Representative Ogden:


             On page 3, at the beginning of line 1 of the amendment, strike "agencies" and insert "regional transit authorities"


             Representative Ogden spoke in favor of adoption of the amendment to the committee amendment.


             Representative K. Schmidt spoke against adoption of the amendment to the committee amendment.


             Representative Ogden again spoke in favor of adoption of the amendment to the committee amendment.


             The amendment to the committee amendment was not adopted.


             The committee amendment was adopted.


             There being no objection, the rules were suspended, the second reading considered the third and the bill was placed on final passage.


             Representatives K. Schmidt and Cairnes spoke in favor of passage of the bill.

             "Sec. 1. RCW 36.70A.010 and 1990 1st ex.s. c 17 s 1 are each amended to read as follows:

             The legislature finds that uncoordinated and unplanned growth, together with a lack of common goals expressing the public's interest in the conservation and the wise use of our lands, pose a threat to the environment, sustainable economic development, and the health, safety, and high quality of life enjoyed by residents of this state. It is in the public interest that citizens, communities, local governments, and the private sector cooperate and coordinate with one another in comprehensive land use planning. The legislature further finds that many of the decisions by the growth management hearings boards have not accorded adequate deference to planning choices made by counties and cities. The legislature restates its intention that implementation of the growth management act focus on locally developed and locally implemented strategies to manage population growth, rather than planning decisions made at the state or regional level. Further, the legislature finds that it is in the public interest that economic development programs be shared with communities experiencing insufficient economic growth.


             Sec. 2. RCW 36.70A.020 and 1990 1st ex.s. c 17 s 2 are each amended to read as follows:

             The following goals are adopted to guide the development and adoption of comprehensive plans and development regulations of those counties and cities that are required or choose to plan under RCW 36.70A.040. This chapter does not establish or require that the following goals be given any particular priority. The growth management hearings boards, in any of their decisions, shall have no discretion to prioritize, balance, or rank these goals. The following goals are not listed in order of priority and shall be used exclusively for the purpose of guiding the development of comprehensive plans and development regulations:

             (1) Urban growth. Encourage development in urban areas where adequate public facilities and services exist or can be provided in an efficient manner.

             (2) Reduce sprawl. Reduce the inappropriate conversion of undeveloped land into sprawling, low-density development.

             (3) Transportation. Encourage efficient multimodal transportation systems that are based on regional priorities and coordinated with county and city comprehensive plans.

             (4) Housing. Encourage the availability of affordable housing to all economic segments of the population of this state, promote a variety of residential densities and housing types, and encourage preservation of existing housing stock.

             (5) Economic development. Encourage economic development throughout the state that is consistent with adopted comprehensive plans, promote economic opportunity for all citizens of this state, especially for unemployed and for disadvantaged persons, and encourage growth in areas experiencing insufficient economic growth, all within the capacities of the state's natural resources, public services, and public facilities.

             (6) Property rights. Private property shall not be taken for public use without just compensation having been made. The property rights of landowners shall be protected from arbitrary and discriminatory actions.

             (7) Permits. Applications for both state and local government permits should be processed in a timely and fair manner to ensure predictability.

             (8) Natural resource industries. Maintain and enhance natural resource-based industries, including productive timber, agricultural, and fisheries industries. Encourage the conservation of productive forest lands and productive agricultural lands, and discourage incompatible uses.

             (9) Open space and recreation. Encourage the retention of open space and development of recreational opportunities, conserve fish and wildlife habitat, increase access to natural resource lands and water, and develop parks.

             (10) Environment. Protect the environment and enhance the state's high quality of life, including air and water quality, and the availability of water.

             (11) Citizen participation and coordination. Encourage the involvement of citizens in the planning process and ensure coordination between communities and jurisdictions to reconcile conflicts.

             (12) Public facilities and services. Ensure that those public facilities and services necessary to support development shall be adequate to serve the development at the time the development is available for occupancy and use without decreasing current service levels below locally established minimum standards.

             (13) Historic preservation. Identify and encourage the preservation of lands, sites, and structures, that have historical or archaeological significance.


             Sec. 3. RCW 36.70A.280 and 1995 c 347 s 108 are each amended to read as follows:

             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".

For purposes of this section, the date of publication for the adoption or amendment of a shoreline master program is the date the local government publishes notice that the shoreline master program or amendment thereto has been approved or disapproved by the department of ecology.

             (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.

             Sec. 6. RCW 36.70A.320 and 1995 c 347 s 111 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) Except as provided in subsection (2) of this section, comprehensive plans and development regulations, ((and)) amendments thereto, and any other required actions adopted under this chapter are presumed valid upon adoption. In any petition ((under this chapter, the board, after full consideration of the petition, shall determine whether there is compliance with the requirements of this chapter.

             Representative Scheuerman spoke against adoption of the amendment to the committee amendment.


POINT OF INQUIRY


             Representative Reams yielded to a question by Representative Morris.


             Representative Morris: This striking amendment is relatively new to our desks. I wonder if you could outline the differences between the striking amendment that you are supporting and the committee amendment.


             Representative Reams: Yes. This is already done by Representative Van Luven who did outline that and were talking about sections number 1 and number 3. Those are the changes to this and I'd call your attention to those two sections. This get's to the issue of requiring that the boards respect the local elected officials planning choices. That's number one, so that we don't end up with super planners, that super impose their thoughts upon the local government that have the elected officials make this original decision so that's one of the main parts of this and then the second one is going to the question of evidence of on the record. What we're hoping is that we can build a record at the local government level and if local governments need help to do that we will help them. Last year we included additional hearings examiners to make it easier on people that do this, so that we can build a record that then can go to the (if it's appealed) can then go to the growth hearings boards. And the growth hearings boards will be hearing the same record with the same information as the local government had and we think that will improve the process.


             The amendment to the committee amendment was adopted.


             The committee amendment as amended was adopted.


             There being no objection, the rules were suspended, the second reading considered the third and the bill was placed on final passage.

             With the consent of the House, amendment numbers 440 and 437 to Engrossed Third Substitute Senate Bill No. 6062 were withdrawn.


             Representative Cooke moved the adoption of the following amendment by Representative Cooke:


             Strike everything after the enacting clause and insert the following:


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 1. INTENT. The legislature finds that it is important for the well-being of society, and for the families receiving aid to families with dependent children, that the provision of welfare from the public treasury reflects the values of mainstream American culture, specifically the importance of work, personal responsibility, and accountability for individual actions, and the value of the marriage commitment to each member of the family, including the children.

             Therefore, it is the public policy of the state of Washington, through its aid to families with dependent children program, to require every able-bodied citizen on aid to families with dependent children to engage in paid employment or engage in short-term training directed towards employment, to require accountability of all parents, and to discourage teen pregnancy by unwed parents as an action that is destructive to society.

             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) Employment assistance resources focus on employable recipients who are most at risk of a long-term stay on welfare;

             (3) Caretakers receiving public assistance sign a contract delineating their obligation and responsibility to comply with requirements for work, training, and personal responsibility;

             (4) Specific time limits for the receipt of public assistance be set for recipients of aid to families with dependent children;

             (5) Unmarried parents who are minors generally will be ineligible for direct assistance under the aid to families with dependent children program; and

             (6) Community-based organizations such as churches, synagogues, nonprofit service providers, and business and labor organizations, have a greater role and responsibility in helping to meet the needs of children and families.


PART I. TARGET GROUPS


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 101. A new section is added to chapter 74.25 RCW to read as follows:

             TARGET GROUP CONTRACTS. The department shall assess each caretaker and, based on this assessment, refer the caretaker to the appropriate target group as provided under sections 102, 103, and 104 of this act, unless the caretaker is not or would not be required to sign a contract under section 301(3) of this act. Assessments shall be based upon age, age of dependents, education, condition of incapacity, and employment history. The assessment and referral of caretakers who are applicants for assistance on or after the effective date of this section shall be made as part of the application approval process. The assessment and referral of caretakers who have been approved for assistance before the effective date of this section shall be completed within twelve months after that date.


A. JOB-READY TARGET GROUP


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 102. A new section is added to chapter 74.25 RCW to read as follows:

             JOB-READY TARGET GROUP. All caretakers who are age eighteen or older and have an employment history in which the most recent job paid six dollars and fifty cents per hour or more, already possess job skills, or are likely to be reemployed with minimal services, shall be referred to the job-ready target group. Caretakers shall be entitled to grant assistance if they participate in sixteen weeks of job search within the first twenty-six weeks after signing an initial contract under section 301 of this act. All caretakers receiving aid to families with dependent children-employable shall be included in the job-ready target group. It is the intent of the legislature to refrain from excess expenditures on this group of aid to families with dependent children caretakers, as studies have demonstrated that job-ready individuals leave aid to families with dependent children quickly with minimal public help. Assessment and administrative costs shall be kept to a minimal level for this target group. Any caretakers in this group who do not have paid employment after sixteen weeks of job search within the first twenty-six weeks shall contract with the department for participation in the job preparation target group.


B. JOB PREPARATION TARGET GROUP


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 103. A new section is added to chapter 74.25 RCW to read as follows:

             JOB PREPARATION TARGET GROUP. All caretakers who are age eighteen or older and do not meet the qualifications for participation in the job-ready target group or who have been in the job-ready target group for twenty-six weeks without obtaining employment, shall be required, as a condition of benefit receipt, to enroll and participate in a program required by chapter . . ., Laws of 1996 (this act) under the job opportunities and basic skills training program.


C. YOUNG PARENT TARGET GROUP


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 104. A new section is added to chapter 74.25 RCW to read as follows:

             YOUNG PARENT TARGET GROUP. All caretakers under the age of twenty-four years who do not possess a high school diploma or a GED shall, as a condition of receiving benefits, actively progress toward the completion of a high school diploma or a GED.


PART II. JOB OPPORTUNITIES AND BASIC SKILLS TRAINING PROGRAM


             Sec. 201. RCW 74.25.010 and 1994 c 299 s 6 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)) aid to families with dependent children, 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 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 job opportunities and basic skills training program shall provide employment and training and education support services to assist caretakers under chapter 74.12 RCW to obtain employment. 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. It is in this way that the material needs of children can best be met. 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)) are participants in self-sufficiency planning under the program. The legislature finds that the department of social and health services should clearly communicate ((concepts of the importance)) the requirement of work, the time-limited nature of public assistance, 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)) an important tool((s)) an individual needs to achieve full independence, and that this should be ((an important)) a component of the program.

             (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.

             (6) The legislature finds that a critical component for successful reductions in the aid to families with dependent children caseloads is employment. Employment opportunities must be increased through public-private partnerships. The department shall work with the private sector to meet market needs, increase employability through on-the-job training opportunities, and develop incentives for employers to hire and train recipients.

             NEW SECTION. Sec. 405. A new section is added to chapter 74.12 RCW to read as follows:

             The parents of an unmarried minor who has a child are responsible for the support of the minor and child. The unmarried minor and the minor's child shall be considered to be part of the household of the minor's parents or parent for purposes of determining eligibility for aid to families with dependent children and general assistance for pregnant women as defined in RCW 74.04.005(6)(a)(ii)(A); and as such, the income and resources of the entire household are considered to be available to support the unmarried minor and his or her child.

             (1) In an action brought under this chapter, the court may inquire into the ability of the parent or parents of the child to pay child support and may enter an order of child support as set forth in chapter 26.19 RCW.

             (2) For purposes of this section, if a dependent child's parent is an unmarried minor, then the parent or parents of the minor shall also be deemed a parent or parents of the dependent child. However, liability for child support under this subsection only exists if the parent or parents of the unmarried minor parent are provided the opportunity for a hearing on their ability to provide support. Any child support order requiring such a parent or parents to provide support for the minor parent's child may be effective only until the minor parent reaches eighteen years of age.


             Sec. 407. RCW 74.12.250 and 1963 c 228 s 21 are each amended to read as follows:

             If the department, after investigation, finds that any applicant for assistance under this chapter or any recipient of funds under ((an aid to families with dependent children grant)) this chapter would not use, or is not utilizing, the grant adequately for the needs of ((the)) his or her child or children or would dissipate the grant or is ((otherwise)) dissipating such grant, or would be or is unable to manage adequately the funds paid on behalf of said child and that to provide or continue ((said)) payments to ((him)) the applicant or recipient would be contrary to the welfare of the child, the department may make such payments to another individual who is interested in or concerned with the welfare of such child and relative: PROVIDED, That the department shall provide such counseling and other services as are available and necessary to develop greater ability on the part of the relative to manage funds in such manner as to protect the welfare of the family.

Such petition shall set forth the facts warranting such appointment. Notice of the hearing on such petition shall be served upon the recipient and the department not less than ten days before the date set for such hearing.

If upon the hearing of such petition the court is satisfied that it is for the best interest of the child or children, and all parties concerned, that a guardian be appointed, he shall order the appointment, and may require the guardian to render to the court a detailed itemized account of expenditures of such assistance payments at such time as the court may deem advisable.

             It is the intention of this section that the guardianship herein provided for shall be a special and limited guardianship solely for the purpose of safeguarding the assistance grants made to dependent children. Such guardianship shall terminate upon the termination of such assistance grant, or sooner on order of the court, upon good cause shown.


PART V. LICENSE SUSPENSION


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 501. The legislature recognizes that the current statutory procedures for the collection of child support do not apply to all persons owing child support. In order to further insure that child support obligations are met, this act establishes a program by which certain licenses may be suspended, not issued, or not renewed if a person is one hundred eighty days or more in arrears on child support payments. With this program, it is the intent of the legislature to provide a strong incentive for persons owing support to make timely payments, and to cooperate with the department of social and health services to establish an appropriate schedule for the payment of any arrears. In addition, the legislature finds that disputes over child visitation comprises an often-cited reason why child support is unpaid. It is the intent of the legislature to include custodial parents who deny visitation as persons subject to license suspension, nonrenewal, and denial.

             In the implementation and management of this program, it is the legislature's intent that the objective of the department of social and health services be to obtain payment in full of arrears, or where that is not possible, to enter into agreements with delinquent obligors to make timely support payments and make reasonable payments towards the arrears. The legislature intends that if the obligor refuses to cooperate in establishing a fair and reasonable payment schedule for arrears, or if such payment schedule would cause a substantial hardship, or refuses to make timely support payments, the department shall proceed with certification to a licensing entity or the department of licensing that the person is not in compliance with a child support order.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 502. A new section is added to chapter 74.20A RCW to read as follows:

             (1) As used in this section, unless the context indicates otherwise, the following terms have the following meanings.

             (a) "Licensing entity" includes any department, board, commission, or other organization of the state authorized to issue, renew, suspend, or revoke a license authorizing an individual to engage in a business, occupation, profession, industry, or the operation of a motor vehicle, and includes the Washington state supreme court, to the extent that a rule has been adopted by the court to implement suspension of licenses related to the practice of law.

             (b) "Noncompliance with a child support order" means a responsible parent has:

             (i) Accumulated arrears totaling more than six months of child support payments;

             (ii) Failed to make payments pursuant to a written agreement with the department towards a support arrearage in an amount that exceeds six months of payments; or

             (d) "Licensee" means any individual holding a license, certificate, registration, permit, approval, or other similar document issued by a licensing entity evidencing admission to or granting authority to engage in a profession, occupation, business, industry, or the operation of a motor vehicle.

             (2) The department may serve upon a responsible parent a notice informing the responsible parent of the department's intent to submit the parent's name to the department of licensing and any appropriate licensing entity as a licensee who is not in compliance with a child support order. The department shall attach a copy of the responsible parent's child support order to the notice. Service of the notice must be by certified mail, return receipt requested. If, after seven mailing days, the department does not receive a return receipt, service shall be by personal service.

             (3) The notice of noncompliance must include the address and telephone number of the department's division of child support office that issues the notice and must inform the responsible parent that:

             (a) The parent may request an adjudicative proceeding to contest the issue of compliance. The only issues that may be considered at the adjudicative proceeding are whether the parent is required to pay child support under a child support order and whether the parent is in compliance with that order;

             (b) A request for an adjudicative proceeding shall be in writing and must be received by the department within twenty days of the date of service of the notice;

             (c) If the parent requests an adjudicative proceeding within twenty days of service, the department will stay action to certify the parent to the department of licensing and any licensing entity for noncompliance with a child support order pending entry of a written decision after the adjudicative proceeding;

             (d) If the parent does not request an adjudicative proceeding within twenty days of service and remains in noncompliance with a child support order, the department will certify the parent's name to the department of licensing and any appropriate licensing entity for noncompliance with a child support order;

             (e) The department will stay action to certify the parent to the department of licensing and any licensing entity for noncompliance if the parent agrees to make timely payments of current support and agrees to a reasonable payment schedule for payment of the arrears. It is the parent's responsibility to contact in person or by mail the department's division of child support office indicated on the notice within twenty days of service of the notice to arrange for a payment schedule. The department may stay certification for up to thirty days after contact from a parent to arrange for a payment schedule;

             (f) If the department certifies the responsible parent to the department of licensing and a licensing entity for noncompliance with a child support order, the licensing entity will suspend, not renew, or not issue the parent's license and the department of licensing will suspend, not renew, or not issue any driver's license that the parent holds until the parent provides the department of licensing and the licensing entity with a written release from the department stating that the responsible parent is in compliance with the child support order;

             (g) Suspension of a license will affect insurability if the responsible parent's insurance policy excludes coverage for acts occurring after the suspension of a license;

             (h) If after receiving the notice of noncompliance with a child support order, the responsible parent files a motion to modify support with the court or requests the department to amend a support obligation established by an administrative decision, the department or the court shall stay action to certify the parent to the department of licensing and any licensing entity for noncompliance with a child support order until a final decision or order is entered. If a motion for modification of a court or administrative order for child support is pending prior to service of the notice, any action to certify the parent to a licensing entity for noncompliance with a child support order shall be automatically stayed until entry of a final order or decision in the modification proceedings. The responsible parent has the obligation to notify the department that a modification proceeding is pending and provide a copy of the motion or request for modification; and

             (i) If the responsible parent subsequently becomes in compliance with the child support order, the department will promptly provide the parent with a written release stating that the parent is in compliance with the order, and the parent may request that the licensing entity or the department of licensing reinstate the suspended license.

             (4) A responsible parent may request an adjudicative proceeding upon service of the notice described in subsection (2) of this section. The request for an adjudicative proceeding must be received by the department within twenty days of service. The request must be in writing and indicate the current mailing address and daytime phone number, if available, of the responsible parent. The proceedings under this subsection shall be conducted in accordance with the requirements of chapter 34.05 RCW. The issues that may be considered at the adjudicative proceeding are limited to whether the responsible parent is required to pay child support under a child support order and whether the responsible parent is in compliance with the order.

             (5) The decision resulting from the adjudicative proceeding must be in writing and inform the responsible parent of all rights to review. The parent's copy of the decision may be sent by regular mail to the parent's most recent address of record.

             (6) If a responsible parent contacts the department's division of child support office indicated on the notice of noncompliance within twenty days of service of the notice and requests arrangement of a payment schedule, the department shall stay the certification of noncompliance during negotiation of the schedule for payment of arrears. In no event shall the stay continue for more than thirty days from the date of contact by the parent. The department shall establish a schedule for payment of arrears that is fair and reasonable, and that considers the financial situation of the responsible parent and the needs of all children who rely on the responsible parent for support. At the end of the thirty days, if no payment schedule has been agreed to in writing, the department shall proceed with certification of noncompliance.

             (7) If a responsible parent timely requests an adjudicative proceeding to contest the issue of compliance, the department may not certify the name of the parent to the department of licensing or a licensing entity for noncompliance with a child support order unless the adjudicative proceeding results in a finding that the responsible parent is not in compliance with the order.

             (8) The department may certify in writing to the department of licensing and any appropriate licensing entity the name of a responsible parent who is not in compliance with a child support order if:

             (a) The responsible parent does not timely request an adjudicative proceeding upon service of a notice issued under subsection (2) of this section and is not in compliance with a child support order twenty-one days after service of the notice;

             (b) An adjudicative proceeding results in a decision that the responsible parent is not in compliance with a child support order;

             (c) The court enters a judgment on a petition for judicial review that finds the responsible parent is not in compliance with a child support order; or

             (d) The department and the responsible parent have been unable to agree on a fair and reasonable schedule for payment of the arrears.

             The department shall send by certified mail, return receipt requested a copy of any certification of noncompliance filed with the department of licensing or a licensing entity to the responsible parent at the responsible parent's most recent address of record.

             (9) The department of licensing and a licensing entity shall notify a responsible parent certified by the department under subsection (8) of this section, without undue delay, that the parent's driver's license or other license has been suspended because the parent's name has been certified by the department as a responsible parent who is not in compliance with a child support order.

             (10) When a responsible parent who is served notice under subsection (2) of this section subsequently complies with the child support order, the department shall promptly provide the parent with a written release stating that the responsible parent is in compliance with the order. A copy of that release shall be transmitted to the appropriate licensing entities.

             (11) The department may adopt rules to implement and enforce the requirements of this section.

             (12) Nothing in this section prohibits a responsible parent from filing a motion to modify support with the court or from requesting the department to amend a support obligation established by an administrative decision. If there is a reasonable likelihood that the motion or request will significantly change the amount of the child support obligation, the department or the court may stay action to certify the responsible parent to the department of licensing and any licensing entity for noncompliance with a child support order until a final decision or order is entered. If a motion for modification of a court or administrative order for child support is pending prior to service of the notice, any action to certify the parent to a licensing entity for noncompliance with a child support order shall be automatically stayed until entry of a final order or decision in the modification proceedings. The responsible parent has the obligation to notify the department that a modification proceeding is pending and provide a copy of the motion or request for modification.

             (13) The department of licensing and a licensing entity may issue, renew, reinstate, or otherwise extend a license in accordance with the licensing entity's or the department of licensing's rules after the licensing entity or the department of licensing receives a copy of the written release specified in subsection (10) of this section. The department of licensing and a licensing entity may waive any applicable requirement for reissuance, renewal, or other extension if it determines that the imposition of that requirement places an undue burden on the person and that waiver of the requirement is consistent with the public interest.

             (14) Consistent with the intent of chapter . . ., Laws of 1996 (this act), the department shall develop rules and procedures for implementing the requirements of this section and applying the standards provided in this section. The department shall deliver a copy of these rules and procedures to the appropriate committees of the senate and the house of representatives no later than June 30, 1997.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 503. A new section is added to chapter 74.20A RCW to read as follows:

             (1) The department of social and health services and all of the various licensing entities subject to section 502 of this act shall enter into such agreements as are necessary to carry out the requirements of the license suspension program established in section 502 of this act, but only to the extent the departments and the licensing entities determine it is cost-effective.

             (2) On or before January 1, 1997, and quarterly thereafter, the department of social and health services and all licensing entities subject to section 502 of this act shall perform a comparison of responsible parents who are not in compliance with a child support order, as defined in section 502 of this act, with all licensees subject to chapter . . ., Laws of 1996 (this act). The comparison may be conducted electronically, or by any other means that is jointly agreeable between the department and the particular licensing entity. The data shared shall be limited to those items necessary to implementation of chapter . . ., Laws of 1996 (this act). The purpose of the comparison shall be to identify current licensees who are not in compliance with a child support order, and to provide to the department of social and health services the following information regarding those licensees:

             (1) The number of responsible parents identified as licensees subject to section 502 of this act;

             (2) The number of responsible parents identified by the department as not in compliance with a child support order;

             Sec. 505. RCW 46.20.291 and 1993 c 501 s 4 are each amended to read as follows:

             The department is authorized to suspend the license of a driver upon a showing by its records or other sufficient evidence that the licensee:

             (1) Has committed an offense for which mandatory revocation or suspension of license is provided by law;

             (2) Has, by reckless or unlawful operation of a motor vehicle, caused or contributed to an accident resulting in death or injury to any person or serious property damage;

             (5) Has failed to respond to a notice of traffic infraction, failed to appear at a requested hearing, violated a written promise to appear in court, or has failed to comply with the terms of a notice of traffic infraction or citation, as provided in RCW 46.20.289; ((or))

             Sec. 506. RCW 46.20.311 and 1995 c 332 s 11 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 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 or 46.20.308, 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. If the suspension is the result of a violation of RCW 46.61.502 or 46.61.504, the department shall determine the person's eligibility for licensing based upon the reports provided by the alcoholism agency or probation department designated under RCW 46.61.5056 and shall deny reinstatement until enrollment and participation in an approved program has been established and the person is otherwise qualified. Whenever the license or driving privilege of any person is suspended as a result of certification of noncompliance with a child support order under chapter 74.20A RCW or a residential or visitation order as provided in section 607 of this act, the suspension shall remain in effect until the person provides a written release issued by the department of social and health services or a court stating that the person is in compliance with the order. 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, or is the result of administrative action under RCW 46.20.308, 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 46.20.3101 or 46.61.5055; (c) after the expiration of two years for persons convicted of vehicular homicide; or (d) 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, the reissue fee shall be fifty dollars. If the revocation is the result of a violation of RCW 46.61.502 or 46.61.504, the department shall determine the person's eligibility for licensing based upon the reports provided by the alcoholism agency or probation department designated under RCW 46.61.5056 and shall deny reissuance of a license, permit, or privilege to drive until enrollment and participation in an approved program has been established and the person is otherwise qualified. 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.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 507. A new section is added to chapter 48.22 RCW to read as follows:

             A motor vehicle liability insurance policy that contains any provision excluding insurance coverage for an unlicensed driver shall not apply for ninety days from the date of suspension in the event that the department of licensing suspends a driver's license solely for the nonpayment of child support as provided in chapter 74.20A RCW or for noncompliance with a residential or visitation order as provided in chapter 26.09 RCW.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 508. ATTORNEYS. The legislature intends that the license suspension program established in chapter 74.20A RCW be implemented fairly to ensure that child support obligations are met. However, being mindful of the separations of powers and responsibilities among the branches of government, the legislature strongly encourages the state supreme court to adopt rules providing for suspension and denial of licenses related to the practice of law to those individuals who are in noncompliance with a support order.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 509. A new section is added to chapter 2.48 RCW to read as follows:

             ATTORNEYS. The Washington state supreme court may provide by rule that no person who has been certified by the department of social and health services as a person who is in noncompliance with a support order as provided in section 502 of this act, or is certified by a court as a person who is not in compliance with a residential or visitation order as provided in section 607 of this act may be admitted to the practice of law in this state, and that any member of the Washington state bar association who has been certified by the department of social and health services as a person who is in noncompliance with a support order as provided in section 502 of this act or by a court as in noncompliance with a residential or visitation order under section 607 of this act shall be immediately suspended from membership.

             (1) No person who has been certified by the department of social and health services as a person who is not in compliance with a support order as provided in section 502 of this act, or is certified by a court as a person who is not in compliance with a residential or visitation order as provided in section 607 of this act may be issued a certificate of "certified public accountant." The application of a person so certified by the department of social and health services or by a court may be reviewed for issuance of a certificate under this chapter after the person provides the board a written release issued by the department of social and health services or a court stating that the person is in compliance with the order.

             (2) The board shall immediately suspend the certificate or license of a person who either (a) has been certified pursuant to section 502 of this act by the department of social and health services as a person who is not in compliance with a support order, or (b) has been certified pursuant to section 607 of this act by a court as a person who is not in compliance with a residential or visitation order.

             (2) In the case of suspension for failure to comply with a support order under chapter 74.20A RCW, or a residential or visitation order as provided in section 607 of this act if the person has continued to meet all other requirements for reinstatement during the suspension, reissuance of a certificate or license shall be automatic upon the board's receipt of a written release issued by the department of social and health services or a court stating that the individual is in compliance with the order.

Nothing in this chapter prevents such a person from designing buildings for four years after July 28, 1992, or the five-year period allowed for completion of the examination process, after that person has applied for registration. A person who has been designing buildings and is qualified under this subsection shall, upon application to the board of registration for architects, be allowed to take the examination for architect registration on an equal basis with other applicants.

The application of a person so certified by the department of social and health services or by a court may be reviewed for issuance of a certificate of registration under this chapter after the person provides the board a written release issued by the department of social and health services or a court stating that the person is in compliance with the order.

             (2) The board shall immediately suspend the certificate of registration or certificate of authorization to practice architecture of a person who either (a) has been certified pursuant to section 502 of this act by the department of social and health services as a person who is not in compliance with a support order, or (b) has been certified pursuant to section 607 of this act by a court as a person who is not in compliance with a residential or visitation order.

             (4)(a) If the department gives a licensee twenty-eight or more days notice of revocation, suspension, or modification and the licensee files an appeal before its effective date, the department shall not implement the adverse action until the final order has been entered. The presiding or reviewing officer may permit the department to implement part or all of the adverse action while the proceedings are pending if the appellant causes an unreasonable delay in the proceeding, if the circumstances change so that implementation is in the public interest, or for other good cause.

             (b) If the department gives a licensee less than twenty-eight days notice of revocation, suspension, or modification and the licensee timely files a sufficient appeal, the department may implement the adverse action on the effective date stated in the notice. The presiding or reviewing officer may order the department to stay implementation of part or all of the adverse action while the proceedings are pending if staying implementation is in the public interest or for other good cause.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 554. A new section is added to chapter 28A.410 RCW to read as follows:

             (1) No person who has been certified by the department of social and health services as a person who is not in compliance with a support order as provided in section 502 of this act, or is certified by a court as a person who is not in compliance with a residential or visitation order as provided in section 607 of this act may be issued a certificate or permit under this chapter. The application of a person so certified by the department of social and health services or by a court may be reviewed for issuance of a certificate or permit after the person provides the authority authorized to grant the certificate or permit a written release issued by the department of social and health services or a court stating that the person is in compliance with the order.

             (2) Any certificate or permit authorized under this chapter or chapter 28A.405 RCW shall be suspended by the authority authorized to grant the certificate or permit if (a) either the department of social and health services certifies that the person is not in compliance with a support order as provided in section 502 of this act or (b) a court certifies that the person is not in compliance with a residential or visitation order under chapter 26.09 RCW. If the person continues to meet other requirements for reinstatement during the suspension, reissuance of the certificate or permit shall be automatic after the person provides the authority a written release issued by the department of social and health services or a court stating that the person is in compliance with the order.


             Sec. 555. RCW 43.70.115 and 1991 c 3 s 377 are each amended to read as follows:

             This section governs the denial of an application for a license or the suspension, revocation, or modification of a license by the department. This section does not govern actions taken under chapter 18.130 RCW.

             (1) The department shall give written notice of the denial of an application for a license to the applicant or his or her agent. The department shall give written notice of revocation, suspension, or modification of a license to the licensee or his or her agent. The notice shall state the reasons for the action.

             (b) The department may make the date the action is effective sooner than twenty-eight days after receipt when necessary to protect the public health, safety, or welfare. When the department does so, it shall state the effective date and the reasons supporting the effective date in the written notice given to the licensee or agent.

             (c) When the department has received certification pursuant to either (i) chapter 74.20A RCW from the department of social and health services that the licensee is a person who is not in compliance with a child support order or (ii) chapter 26.09 RCW from a court that the licensee is a person who is not in compliance with a residential or visitation order, the department shall provide that the suspension is effective immediately upon receipt of the suspension notice by the licensee.

             (3) Except for licensees suspended for noncompliance with a child support order under chapter 74.20A RCW or a residential or visitation order under chapter 26.09 RCW, a license applicant or licensee who is aggrieved by a department denial, revocation, suspension, or modification has the right to an adjudicative proceeding. The proceeding is governed by the Administrative Procedure Act, chapter 34.05 RCW. The application must be in writing, state the basis for contesting the adverse action, include a copy of the adverse notice, be served on and received by the department within twenty-eight days of the license applicant's or licensee's receiving the adverse notice, and be served in a manner that shows proof of receipt.

             (4)(a) If the department gives a licensee twenty-eight or more days notice of revocation, suspension, or modification and the licensee files an appeal before its effective date, the department shall not implement the adverse action until the final order has been entered. The presiding or reviewing officer may permit the department to implement part or all of the adverse action while the proceedings are pending if the appellant causes an unreasonable delay in the proceeding, if the circumstances change so that implementation is in the public interest, or for other good cause.

             (b) If the department gives a licensee less than twenty-eight days notice of revocation, suspension, or modification and the licensee timely files a sufficient appeal, the department may implement the adverse action on the effective date stated in the notice. The presiding or reviewing officer may order the department to stay implementation of part or all of the adverse action while the proceedings are pending if staying implementation is in the public interest or for other good cause.


             Sec. 556. RCW 19.28.120 and 1992 c 217 s 2 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) It is unlawful for any person, firm, partnership, corporation, or other entity to engage in, conduct, or carry on the business of installing or maintaining wires or equipment to convey electric current, or installing or maintaining equipment to be operated by electric current as it pertains to the electrical industry, without having an unrevoked, unsuspended, and unexpired electrical contractor license, issued by the department in accordance with this chapter. All electrical contractor licenses expire twenty-four calendar months following the day of their issue. The department may issue an electrical contractors license for a period of less than twenty-four months only for the purpose of equalizing the number of electrical contractor licenses which expire each month. Application for an electrical contractor license shall be made in writing to the department, accompanied by the required fee. The application shall state:

             (a) The name and address of the applicant; in case of firms or partnerships, the names of the individuals composing the firm or partnership; in case of corporations, the names of the managing officials thereof;

             (b) The location of the place of business of the applicant and the name under which the business is conducted;

             (c) Employer social security number;

             (d) As applicable: (i) The industrial insurance account number covering employees domiciled in Washington; and (ii) evidence of workers' compensation coverage in the applicant's state of domicile for the applicant's employees working in Washington who are not domiciled in Washington;

             (e) Employment security department number;

             (f) State excise tax registration number;

             (g) Unified business identifier (UBI) account number may be substituted for the information required by (d), (e), and (f) of this subsection; and

             (h) Whether a general or specialty electrical contractor license is sought and, if the latter, the type of specialty. Electrical contractor specialties include, but are not limited to: Residential, domestic appliances, pump and irrigation, limited energy system, signs, nonresidential maintenance, and a combination specialty. A general electrical contractor license shall grant to the holder the right to engage in, conduct, or carry on the business of installing or maintaining wires or equipment to carry electric current, and installing or maintaining equipment, or installing or maintaining material to fasten or insulate such wires or equipment to be operated by electric current, in the state of Washington. A specialty electrical contractor license shall grant to the holder a limited right to engage in, conduct, or carry on the business of installing or maintaining wires or equipment to carry electrical current, and installing or maintaining equipment; or installing or maintaining material to fasten or insulate such wires or equipment to be operated by electric current in the state of Washington as expressly allowed by the license.

             (2) The department may verify the workers' compensation coverage information provided by the applicant under subsection (1)(d) of this section, including but not limited to information regarding the coverage of an individual employee of the applicant. If coverage is provided under the laws of another state, the department may notify the other state that the applicant is employing employees in Washington.

             (3) The application for a contractor license shall be accompanied by a bond in the sum of four thousand dollars with the state of Washington named as obligee in the bond, with good and sufficient surety, to be approved by the department. The bond shall at all times be kept in full force and effect, and any cancellation or revocation thereof, or withdrawal of the surety therefrom, suspends the license issued to the principal until a new bond has been filed and approved as provided in this section. Upon approval of a bond, the department shall on the next business day deposit the fee accompanying the application in the electrical license fund and shall file the bond in the office. The department shall upon request furnish to any person, firm, partnership, corporation, or other entity a certified copy of the bond upon the payment of a fee that the department shall set by rule. The fee shall cover but not exceed the cost of furnishing the certified copy. The bond shall be conditioned that in any installation or maintenance of wires or equipment to convey electrical current, and equipment to be operated by electrical current, the principal will comply with the provisions of this chapter and with any electrical ordinance, building code, or regulation of a city or town adopted pursuant to RCW 19.28.010(((2))) (3) that is in effect at the time of entering into a contract. The bond shall be conditioned further that the principal will pay for all labor, including employee benefits, and material furnished or used upon the work, taxes and contributions to the state of Washington, and all damages that may be sustained by any person, firm, partnership, corporation, or other entity due to a failure of the principal to make the installation or maintenance in accordance with this chapter or any applicable ordinance, building code, or regulation of a city or town adopted pursuant to RCW 19.28.010(((2))) (3). In lieu of the surety bond required by this section the license applicant may file with the department a cash deposit or other negotiable security acceptable to the department. If the license applicant has filed a cash deposit, the department shall deposit the funds in a special trust savings account in a commercial bank, mutual savings bank, or savings and loan association and shall pay annually to the depositor the interest derived from the account.

             (4) Except as provided in subsection (6) of this section, the department shall issue general or specialty electrical contractor licenses to applicants meeting all of the requirements of this chapter. The provisions of this chapter relating to the licensing of any person, firm, partnership, corporation, or other entity including the requirement of a bond with the state of Washington named as obligee therein and the collection of a fee therefor, are exclusive, and no political subdivision of the state of Washington may require or issue any licenses or bonds or charge any fee for the same or a similar purpose. No person, firm, partnership, corporation, or other entity holding more than one specialty contractor license under this chapter may be required to pay an annual fee for more than one such license or to post more than one four thousand dollar bond, equivalent cash deposit, or other negotiable security.

             (5) To obtain a general or specialty electrical contractor license the applicant must designate an individual who currently possesses an administrator's certificate as a general electrical contractor administrator or as a specialty electrical contractor administrator in the specialty for which application has been made. Administrator certificate specialties include but are not limited to: Residential, domestic, appliance, pump and irrigation, limited energy system, signs, nonresidential maintenance, and combination specialty. To obtain an administrator's certificate an individual must pass an examination as set forth in RCW 19.28.123 unless the applicant was a licensed electrical contractor at any time during 1974. Applicants who were electrical contractors licensed by the state of Washington at any time during 1974 are entitled to receive a general electrical contractor administrator's certificate without examination if the applicants apply prior to January 1, 1984. The board of electrical examiners shall certify to the department the names of all persons who are entitled to either a general or specialty electrical contractor administrator's certificate.

             (6) No person who has been certified by the department of social and health services as a person who is not in compliance with a support order as provided in section 502 of this act, or is certified by a court as a person who is not in compliance with a residential or visitation order as provided in section 607 of this act may be issued a license or certificate under this chapter. The application of a person so certified by the department of social and health services or by a court may be reviewed for issuance of a license or certificate under this chapter after the person provides the department with a written release issued by the department of social and health services or a court stating that the person is in compliance with the order.


             Sec. 557. RCW 19.28.125 and 1988 c 81 s 6 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) Each applicant for an electrical contractor's license, other than an individual, shall designate a supervisory employee or member of the firm to take the required administrator's examination. Effective July 1, 1987, a supervisory employee designated as the administrator shall be a full-time supervisory employee. This person shall be designated as administrator under the license. No person may qualify as administrator for more than one contractor. If the relationship of the administrator with the electrical contractor is terminated, the contractor's license is void within ninety days unless another administrator is qualified by the board. However, if the administrator dies, the contractor's license is void within one hundred eighty days unless another administrator is qualified by the board. A certificate issued under this section is valid for two years from the nearest birthdate of the administrator, unless revoked or suspended, and further is nontransferable. The certificate may be renewed for a two-year period without examination by appropriate application unless the certificate has been revoked, suspended, or not renewed within ninety days after the expiration date. If the certificate is not renewed before the expiration date, the individual shall pay twice the usual fee. An individual holding more than one administrator's certificate under this chapter shall not be required to pay annual fees for more than one certificate. A person may take the administrator's test as many times as necessary without limit.

             (2) The administrator shall:

             (a) Be a member of the firm or a supervisory employee and shall be available during working hours to carry out the duties of an administrator under this section;

The application of a person so certified by the department of social and health services or by a court may be reviewed for issuance of a license or certificate under this chapter after the person provides the department with a written release issued by the department of social and health services or a court stating that the person is in compliance with the order.


             Sec. 558. RCW 19.28.310 and 1988 c 81 s 10 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) The department has the power, in case of continued noncompliance with the provisions of this chapter, to revoke or suspend for such a period as it determines, any electrical contractor license or electrical contractor administrator certificate issued under this chapter. The department shall notify the holder of the license or certificate of the revocation or suspension by certified mail. A revocation or suspension is effective fifteen days after the holder receives the notice. Any revocation or suspension is subject to review by an appeal to the board. The filing of an appeal stays the effect of a revocation or suspension until the board makes its decision. The appeal shall be filed within fifteen days after notice of the revocation or suspension is given by certified mail sent to the address of the holder of the license or certificate as shown on the application for the license or certificate, and shall be effected by filing a written notice of appeal with the department, accompanied by a certified check for two hundred dollars, which shall be returned to the holder of the license or certificate if the decision of the department is not sustained by the board. The hearing shall be conducted in accordance with chapter 34.05 RCW. If the board sustains the decision of the department, the two hundred dollars shall be applied by the department to the payment of the per diem and expenses of the members of the board incurred in the matter, and any balance remaining after payment of per diem and expenses shall be paid into the electrical license fund.

             (2) The department shall immediately suspend the license or certificate of a person who either (a) has been certified pursuant to section 502 of this act by the department of social and health services as a person who is not in compliance with a support order, or (b) has been certified pursuant to section 607 of this act by a court as a person who is not in compliance with a residential or visitation order. If the person has continued to meet all other requirements for reinstatement during the suspension, reissuance of the license or certificate shall be automatic upon the department's receipt of a written release issued by the department of social and health services or a court stating that the licensee is in compliance with the order.

             (a) The contents and requirements for satisfactory completion of the continuing education course shall be determined by the director and approved by the board.

             (b) The department shall accept proof of a certificate holder's satisfactory completion of a continuing education course offered in another state as meeting the requirements for maintaining a current Washington state certificate of competency if the department is satisfied the course is comparable in nature to that required in Washington state for maintaining a current certificate of competency.

             (3) If the certificate is not renewed before the expiration date, the individual shall pay twice the usual fee. The department shall set the fees by rule for issuance and renewal of a certificate of competency. The fees shall cover but not exceed the costs of issuing the certificates and of administering and enforcing the electrician certification requirements of this chapter.

             (4) The certificates of competency and temporary permits provided for in this chapter grant the holder the right to work in the electrical construction trade as a journeyman electrician or specialty electrician in accordance with their provisions throughout the state and within any of its political subdivisions without additional proof of competency or any other license, permit, or fee to engage in such work.

             (5) No person who has been certified by the department of social and health services as a person who is not in compliance with a support order as provided in section 502 of this act, or is certified by a court as a person who is not in compliance with a residential or visitation order as provided in section 607 of this act may be issued a license or certificate under this chapter.

             (c) The holder thereof has violated any of the provisions of RCW 19.28.510 through 19.28.620 or any rule adopted under this chapter.

             (2) Before any certificate of competency shall be revoked, the holder shall be given written notice of the department's intention to do so, mailed by registered mail, return receipt requested, to the holder's last known address. The notice shall enumerate the allegations against the holder, and shall give the holder the opportunity to request a hearing before the board. At the hearing, the department and the holder may produce witnesses and give testimony. The hearing shall be conducted in accordance with chapter 34.05 RCW. The board shall render its decision based upon the testimony and evidence presented, and shall notify the parties immediately upon reaching its decision. A majority of the board shall be necessary to render a decision.

However, the director of labor and industries may issue a license if the person suffering a drug or alcohol related dependency is participating in or has completed an alcohol or drug recovery program acceptable to the department of labor and industries and has established control of their alcohol or drug dependency. The director of labor and industries shall require the applicant to provide proof of such participation and control; ((or))

             (3) The director of labor and industries may establish reasonable licensing fees for the manufacture, dealing, purchase, use, and storage of explosives.

However, the department of labor and industries may condition renewal of the license to any convicted person suffering a drug or alcohol dependency who is participating in an alcoholism or drug recovery program acceptable to the department of labor and industries and has established control of their alcohol or drug dependency. The department of labor and industries shall require the licensee to provide proof of such participation and control;

             (e) A crime relating to possession, use, transfer, or sale of explosives under this chapter or any other chapter of the Revised Code of Washington.

             (6) Upon receipt of notification by the department of labor and industries of revocation or suspension, a licensee must surrender immediately to the department any or all such licenses revoked or suspended.


             Sec. 598. RCW 66.24.010 and 1995 c 232 s 1 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) Every license shall be issued in the name of the applicant, and the holder thereof shall not allow any other person to use the license.

             (2) For the purpose of considering any application for a license, the board may cause an inspection of the premises to be made, and may inquire into all matters in connection with the construction and operation of the premises. For the purpose of reviewing any application for a license and for considering the denial, suspension or revocation of any license, the liquor control board may consider any prior criminal conduct of the applicant and the provisions of RCW 9.95.240 and of chapter 9.96A RCW shall not apply to such cases. The board may, in its discretion, grant or refuse the license applied for. Authority to approve an uncontested or unopposed license may be granted by the board to any staff member the board designates in writing. Conditions for granting such authority shall be adopted by rule. No retail license of any kind may be issued to:

             (a) A person who has not resided in the state for at least one month prior to making application, except in cases of licenses issued to dining places on railroads, boats, or aircraft;

             (b) A copartnership, unless all of the members thereof are qualified to obtain a license, as provided in this section;

             (c) A person whose place of business is conducted by a manager or agent, unless such manager or agent possesses the same qualifications required of the licensee;

             (d) A corporation, unless it was created under the laws of the state of Washington or holds a certificate of authority to transact business in the state of Washington; or

             (e) Any person who has been certified by the department of social and health services as a person who is not in compliance with a support order as provided in section 502 of this act, or is certified by a court as a person who is not in compliance with a residential or visitation order as provided in section 607 of this act. The application of a person so certified by the department of social and health services or by a court may be reviewed for issuance of a license or certificate under this chapter after the person provides the board with a written release issued by the department of social and health services or a court stating that the person is in compliance with the order.

             (3)(a) The board may, in its discretion, subject to the provisions of RCW 66.08.150, suspend or cancel any license; and all rights of the licensee to keep or sell liquor thereunder shall be suspended or terminated, as the case may be.

             (b) The board shall immediately suspend the license or certificate of a person who either (i) has been certified pursuant to section 502 of this act by the department of social and health services as a person who is not in compliance with a support order, or (ii) has been certified pursuant to section 607 of this act by a court as a person who is not in compliance with a residential or visitation order. If the person has continued to meet all other requirements for reinstatement during the suspension, reissuance of the license or certificate shall be automatic upon the board's receipt of a written release issued by the department of social and health services or a court stating that the licensee is in compliance with the order.

             (c) The board may request the appointment of administrative law judges under chapter 34.12 RCW who shall have power to administer oaths, issue subpoenas for the attendance of witnesses and the production of papers, books, accounts, documents, and testimony, examine witnesses, and to receive testimony in any inquiry, investigation, hearing, or proceeding in any part of the state, under such rules and regulations as the board may adopt.

             (d) Witnesses shall be allowed fees and mileage each way to and from any such inquiry, investigation, hearing, or proceeding at the rate authorized by RCW 34.05.446, as now or hereafter amended. Fees need not be paid in advance of appearance of witnesses to testify or to produce books, records, or other legal evidence.

             (e) In case of disobedience of any person to comply with the order of the board or a subpoena issued by the board, or any of its members, or administrative law judges, or on the refusal of a witness to testify to any matter regarding which he or she may be lawfully interrogated, the judge of the superior court of the county in which the person resides, on application of any member of the board or administrative law judge, shall compel obedience by contempt proceedings, as in the case of disobedience of the requirements of a subpoena issued from said court or a refusal to testify therein.

             (4) Upon receipt of notice of the suspension or cancellation of a license, the licensee shall forthwith deliver up the license to the board. Where the license has been suspended only, the board shall return the license to the licensee at the expiration or termination of the period of suspension. The board shall notify all vendors in the city or place where the licensee has its premises of the suspension or cancellation of the license; and no employee may allow or cause any liquor to be delivered to or for any person at the premises of that licensee.

             (5)(a) At the time of the original issuance of a class H license, the board shall prorate the license fee charged to the new licensee according to the number of calendar quarters, or portion thereof, remaining until the first renewal of that license is required.

             (b) Unless sooner canceled, every license issued by the board shall expire at midnight of the thirtieth day of June of the fiscal year for which it was issued. However, if the board deems it feasible and desirable to do so, it may establish, by rule pursuant to chapter 34.05 RCW, a system for staggering the annual renewal dates for any and all licenses authorized by this chapter. If such a system of staggered annual renewal dates is established by the board, the license fees provided by this chapter shall be appropriately prorated during the first year that the system is in effect.

             (6) Every license issued under this section shall be subject to all conditions and restrictions imposed by this title or by the regulations in force from time to time. All conditions and restrictions imposed by the board in the issuance of an individual license shall be listed on the face of the individual license along with the trade name, address, and expiration date.

             (7) Every licensee shall post and keep posted its license, or licenses, in a conspicuous place on the premises.

             (8) Before the board shall issue a license to an applicant it shall give notice of such application to the chief executive officer of the incorporated city or town, if the application be for a license within an incorporated city or town, or to the county legislative authority, if the application be for a license outside the boundaries of incorporated cities or towns; and such incorporated city or town, through the official or employee selected by it, or the county legislative authority or the official or employee selected by it, shall have the right to file with the board within twenty days after date of transmittal of such notice, written objections against the applicant or against the premises for which the license is asked, and shall include with such objections a statement of all facts upon which such objections are based, and in case written objections are filed, may request and the liquor control board may in its discretion hold a formal hearing subject to the applicable provisions of Title 34 RCW. Upon the granting of a license under this title the board shall send a duplicate of the license or written notification to the chief executive officer of the incorporated city or town in which the license is granted, or to the county legislative authority if the license is granted outside the boundaries of incorporated cities or towns.

             (9) Before the board issues any license to any applicant, it shall give (a) due consideration to the location of the business to be conducted under such license with respect to the proximity of churches, schools, and public institutions and (b) written notice by certified mail of the application to churches, schools, and public institutions within five hundred feet of the premises to be licensed. The board shall issue no beer retailer license class A, B, D, or E or wine retailer license class C or F or class H license covering any premises not now licensed, if such premises are within five hundred feet of the premises of any tax-supported public elementary or secondary school measured along the most direct route over or across established public walks, streets, or other public passageway from the outer property line of the school grounds to the nearest public entrance of the premises proposed for license, and if, after receipt by the school or public institution of the notice as provided in this subsection, the board receives written notice, within twenty days after posting such notice, from an official representative or representatives of the school within five hundred feet of said proposed licensed premises, indicating to the board that there is an objection to the issuance of such license because of proximity to a school. For the purpose of this section, church shall mean a building erected for and used exclusively for religious worship and schooling or other activity in connection therewith. No liquor license may be issued or reissued by the board to any motor sports facility or licensee operating within the motor sports facility unless the motor sports facility enforces a program reasonably calculated to prevent alcohol or alcoholic beverages not purchased within the facility from entering the facility and such program is approved by local law enforcement agencies. It is the intent under this subsection that a retail license shall not be issued by the board where doing so would, in the judgment of the board, adversely affect a private school meeting the requirements for private schools under Title 28A RCW, which school is within five hundred feet of the proposed licensee. The board shall fully consider and give substantial weight to objections filed by private schools. If a license is issued despite the proximity of a private school, the board shall state in a letter addressed to the private school the board's reasons for issuing the license.

             (10) The restrictions set forth in subsection (9) of this section shall not prohibit the board from authorizing the assumption of existing licenses now located within the restricted area by other persons or licenses or relocations of existing licensed premises within the restricted area. In no case may the licensed premises be moved closer to a church or school than it was before the assumption or relocation.

             (11) Nothing in this section prohibits the board, in its discretion, from issuing a temporary retail or wholesaler license to an applicant assuming an existing retail or wholesaler license to continue the operation of the retail or wholesaler premises during the period the application for the license is pending and when the following conditions exist:

             (a) The licensed premises has been operated under a retail or wholesaler license within ninety days of the date of filing the application for a temporary license;

             (b) The retail or wholesaler license for the premises has been surrendered pursuant to issuance of a temporary operating license;

             (c) The applicant for the temporary license has filed with the board an application to assume the retail or wholesaler license at such premises to himself or herself; and

             (d) The application for a temporary license is accompanied by a temporary license fee established by the board by rule.

             A temporary license issued by the board under this section shall be for a period not to exceed sixty days. A temporary license may be extended at the discretion of the board for an additional sixty-day period upon payment of an additional fee and upon compliance with all conditions required in this section.

             Refusal by the board to issue or extend a temporary license shall not entitle the applicant to request a hearing. A temporary license may be canceled or suspended summarily at any time if the board determines that good cause for cancellation or suspension exists. RCW 66.08.130 and chapter 34.05 RCW shall apply to temporary licenses.

             Application for a temporary license shall be on such form as the board shall prescribe. If an application for a temporary license is withdrawn before issuance or is refused by the board, the fee which accompanied such application shall be refunded in full.


             Sec. 599. RCW 43.63B.040 and 1994 c 284 s 19 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) The department shall issue a certificate of manufactured home installation to an applicant who has taken the training course, passed the examination, paid the fees, and in all other respects ((meet[s])) meets the qualifications. The certificate shall bear the date of issuance, a certification identification number, and is renewable every three years upon application and completion of a continuing education program as determined by the department. A renewal fee shall be assessed for each certificate. If a person fails to renew a certificate by the renewal date, the person must retake the examination and pay the examination fee.

             (2) The certificate of manufactured home installation provided for in this chapter grants the holder the right to engage in manufactured home installation throughout the state, without any other installer certification.

             (3) No person who has been certified by the department of social and health services as a person who is not in compliance with a support order as provided in section 502 of this act, or is certified by a court as a person who is not in compliance with a residential or visitation order as provided in section 607 of this act may be issued a license or certificate under this chapter. The application of a person so certified by the department of social and health services or by a court may be reviewed for issuance of a license or certificate under this chapter after the person provides the department with a written release issued by the department of social and health services or a court stating that the person is in compliance with the order.

             (4) The department shall immediately suspend the license or certificate of a person who either (a) has been certified pursuant to section 502 of this act by the department of social and health services as a person who is not in compliance with a support order, or (b) has been certified pursuant to section 607 of this act by a court as a person who is not in compliance with a residential or visitation order. If the person has continued to meet all other requirements for reinstatement during the suspension, reissuance of the license or certificate shall be automatic upon the department's receipt of a written release issued by the department of social and health services or a court stating that the licensee is in compliance with the order.

             (e) "Residential or visitation order" means the residential schedule or visitation schedule contained in a court-ordered parenting plan.

             (2) If a court determines under RCW 26.09.160 that a parent is not in compliance with a provision of a residential or visitation order under RCW 26.09.160, the court shall enter an order directed to the appropriate licensing entity certifying that the parent is not in compliance with a residential or visitation order. The order shall contain the noncomplying parent's name, address, and social security number, and shall indicate whether the obligor is believed to be a licensee who has a license, is in the process of applying for a license, or may seek renewal of a license issued directly by the licensing entity or through a board affiliated with the licensing entity. The court clerk shall forward the order to the licensing entity.

             (3) The court shall set a review hearing date to determine whether the noncomplying parent becomes in compliance with the residential or visitation order. If the court determines at the review hearing that the parent is in compliance with the residential or visitation order, the court shall provide the parent with a written release stating that the parent is in compliance with the residential or visitation order.     (4) Upon receipt of the court order, the licensing entity shall refuse to issue or renew a license to the licensee or shall suspend the licensee's license until the licensee provides the licensing entity with a release from the court that states the licensee is in compliance with the residential or visitation order.


             Sec. 608. RCW 26.09.160 and 1991 c 367 s 4 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) The performance of parental functions and the duty to provide child support are distinct responsibilities in the care of a child. If a party fails to comply with a provision of a decree or temporary order of injunction, the obligation of the other party to make payments for support or maintenance or to permit contact with children is not suspended. An attempt by a parent, in either the negotiation or the performance of a parenting plan, to condition one aspect of the parenting plan upon another, to condition payment of child support upon an aspect of the parenting plan, to refuse to pay ordered child support, to refuse to perform the duties provided in the parenting plan, or to hinder the performance by the other parent of duties provided in the parenting plan, shall be deemed bad faith and shall be punished by the court by holding the party in contempt of court and by awarding to the aggrieved party reasonable attorneys' fees and costs incidental in bringing a motion for contempt of court.

             (2)(a) A motion may be filed to initiate a contempt action to coerce a parent to comply with an order establishing residential provisions for a child. If the court finds there is reasonable cause to believe the parent has not complied with the order, the court may issue an order to show cause why the relief requested should not be granted.

             (b) If, based on all the facts and circumstances, the court finds after hearing that the parent, in bad faith, has not complied with the order establishing residential provisions for the child, the court shall find the parent in contempt of court. Upon a finding of contempt, the court shall order:

             (i) The noncomplying parent to provide the moving party additional time with the child. The additional time shall be equal to the time missed with the child, due to the parent's noncompliance;

             (ii) The parent to pay, to the moving party, all court costs and reasonable attorneys' fees incurred as a result of the noncompliance, and any reasonable expenses incurred in locating or returning a child; and

             (iii) The parent to pay, to the moving party, a civil penalty, not less than the sum of one hundred dollars.

             The court may also order the parent to be imprisoned in the county jail, if the parent is presently able to comply with the provisions of the court-ordered parenting plan and is presently unwilling to comply. The parent may be imprisoned until he or she agrees to comply with the order, but in no event for more than one hundred eighty days.

             (3) On a second failure within three years to comply with a residential provision of a court-ordered parenting plan, a motion may be filed to initiate contempt of court proceedings according to the procedure set forth in subsection (2) (a) and (b) of this section. On a finding of contempt under this subsection, the court shall ((order)):

             (a) Order the noncomplying parent to provide the other parent or party additional time with the child. The additional time shall be twice the amount of the time missed with the child, due to the parent's noncompliance;

             (b) Order the noncomplying parent to pay, to the other parent or party, all court costs and reasonable attorneys' fees incurred as a result of the noncompliance, and any reasonable expenses incurred in locating or returning a child; ((and))

             (c) Order the noncomplying parent to pay, to the moving party, a civil penalty of not less than two hundred fifty dollars; and

             (d) Enter an order under section 607 of this act directed to the appropriate licensing entity certifying that the parent is not in compliance with the residential schedule or visitation schedule of a permanent parenting plan.

             The court may also order the parent to be imprisoned in the county jail, if the parent is presently able to comply with the provisions of the court-ordered parenting plan and is presently unwilling to comply. The parent may be imprisoned until he or she agrees to comply with the order but in no event for more than one hundred eighty days.

             (4) For purposes of subsections (1), (2), and (3) of this section, the parent shall be deemed to have the present ability to comply with the order establishing residential provisions unless he or she establishes otherwise by a preponderance of the evidence. The parent shall establish a reasonable excuse for failure to comply with the residential provision of a court-ordered parenting plan by a preponderance of the evidence.

             (5) Any monetary award ordered under subsections (1), (2), and (3) of this section may be enforced, by the party to whom it is awarded, in the same manner as a civil judgment.

             (6) Subsections (1), (2), and (3) of this section authorize the exercise of the court's power to impose remedial sanctions for contempt of court and is in addition to any other contempt power the court may possess.

             (7) Upon motion for contempt of court under subsections (1) through (3) of this section, if the court finds the motion was brought without reasonable basis, the court shall order the moving party to pay to the nonmoving party, all costs, reasonable attorneys' fees, and a civil penalty of not less than one hundred dollars.


             Sec. 609. RCW 26.09.165 and 1994 c 162 s 2 are each amended to read as follows:

             All court orders containing parenting plan provisions or orders of contempt, entered pursuant to RCW 26.09.160, shall include the following language:

VIOLATION OF THIS ORDER MAY SUBJECT A VIOLATOR TO ARREST.


             Sec. 610. RCW 26.23.050 and 1994 c 230 s 9 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) If the office of support enforcement is providing support enforcement services under RCW 26.23.045, or if a party is applying for support enforcement services by signing the application form on the bottom of the support order, the superior court shall include in all court orders that establish or modify a support obligation:

             (a) A provision that orders and directs the responsible parent to make all support payments to the Washington state support registry;

             (b) A statement that a notice of payroll deduction may be issued, or other income withholding action under chapter 26.18 or 74.20A RCW may be taken, without further notice to the responsible parent at any time after entry of the court order, unless:

             (i) One of the parties demonstrates, and the court finds, that there is good cause not to require immediate income withholding and that withholding should be delayed until a payment is past due; or

             (ii) The parties reach a written agreement that is approved by the court that provides for an alternate arrangement; ((and))

             (c) A statement that the receiving parent might be required to submit an accounting of how the support is being spent to benefit the child; and

             (d) A statement that the responsible parent's privileges to obtain and maintain a license, as defined in section 502 of this act, may be denied, not renewed, or suspended if the parent is not in compliance with a support order as defined in section 502 of this act.

             As used in this subsection and subsection (3) of this section, "good cause not to require immediate income withholding" means a written determination of why implementing immediate wage withholding would not be in the child's best interests and, in modification cases, proof of timely payment of previously ordered support.

             (2) In all other cases not under subsection (1) of this section, the court may order the responsible parent to make payments directly to the person entitled to receive the payments, to the Washington state support registry, or may order that payments be made in accordance with an alternate arrangement agreed upon by the parties.

             (a) The superior court shall include in all orders under this subsection that establish or modify a support obligation:

             (i) A statement that a notice of payroll deduction may be issued or other income withholding action under chapter 26.18 or 74.20A RCW may be taken, without further notice to the responsible parent at any time after entry of the court order, unless:

             (A) One of the parties demonstrates, and the court finds, that there is good cause not to require immediate income withholding and that withholding should be delayed until a payment is past due; or

             (B) The parties reach a written agreement that is approved by the court that provides for an alternate arrangement; and

             (ii) A statement that the receiving parent may be required to submit an accounting of how the support is being spent to benefit the child.

             As used in this subsection, "good cause not to require immediate income withholding" is any reason that the court finds appropriate.

             (b) The superior court may order immediate or delayed income withholding as follows:

             (i) Immediate income withholding may be ordered if the responsible parent has earnings. If immediate income withholding is ordered under this subsection, all support payments shall be paid to the Washington state support registry. The superior court shall issue a mandatory wage assignment order as set forth in chapter 26.18 RCW when the support order is signed by the court. The parent entitled to receive the transfer payment is responsible for serving the employer with the order and for its enforcement as set forth in chapter 26.18 RCW.

             (ii) If immediate income withholding is not ordered, the court shall require that income withholding be delayed until a payment is past due. The support order shall contain a statement that a notice of payroll deduction may be issued, or other income-withholding action under chapter 26.18 or 74.20A RCW may be taken, without further notice to the responsible parent, after a payment is past due.

             (c) If a mandatory wage withholding order under chapter 26.18 RCW is issued under this subsection and the office of support enforcement provides support enforcement services under RCW 26.23.045, the existing wage withholding assignment is prospectively superseded upon the office of support enforcement's subsequent service of an income withholding notice.

             (3) The office of administrative hearings and the department of social and health services shall require that all support obligations established as administrative orders include a provision which orders and directs that the responsible parent shall make all support payments to the Washington state support registry. All administrative orders shall also state that the responsible parent's privileges to obtain and maintain a license, as defined in section 502 of this act, may be denied, not renewed, or suspended if the parent is not in compliance with a support order as defined in section 502 of this act. All administrative orders shall also state that a notice of payroll deduction may be issued, or other income withholding action taken without further notice to the responsible parent at any time after entry of the order, unless:

             (a) One of the parties demonstrates, and the presiding officer finds, that there is good cause not to require immediate income withholding; or

             (b) The parties reach a written agreement that is approved by the presiding officer that provides for an alternate agreement.

             (4) If the support order does not include the provision ordering and directing that all payments be made to the Washington state support registry and a statement that a notice of payroll deduction may be issued if a support payment is past due or at any time after the entry of the order, or that a parent's licensing privileges may be denied, not renewed, or suspended, the office of support enforcement may serve a notice on the responsible parent stating such requirements and authorizations. Service may be by personal service or any form of mail requiring a return receipt.

             (5) Every support order shall state:

             (a) The address where the support payment is to be sent;

             (b) That a notice of payroll deduction may be issued or other income withholding action under chapter 26.18 or 74.20A RCW may be taken, without further notice to the responsible parent at any time after entry of an order by the court, unless:

             (i) One of the parties demonstrates, and the court finds, that there is good cause not to require immediate income withholding; or

             (ii) The parties reach a written agreement that is approved by the court that provides for an alternate arrangement;

             (c) The income of the parties, if known, or that their income is unknown and the income upon which the support award is based;

             (d) The support award as a sum certain amount;

             (e) The specific day or date on which the support payment is due;

             (f) The social security number, residence address, and name and address of the employer of the responsible parent;

             (g) The social security number and residence address of the physical custodian except as provided in subsection (6) of this section;

             (h) The names, dates of birth, and social security numbers, if any, of the dependent children;

             (i) In cases requiring payment to the Washington state support registry, that the parties are to notify the Washington state support registry of any change in residence address. The responsible parent shall notify the registry of the name and address of his or her current employer, whether he or she has access to health insurance coverage at reasonable cost and, if so, the health insurance policy information;

             (j) That any parent owing a duty of child support shall be obligated to provide health insurance coverage for his or her child if coverage that can be extended to cover the child is or becomes available to that parent through employment or is union-related as provided under RCW 26.09.105;

             (k) That if proof of health insurance coverage or proof that the coverage is unavailable is not provided within twenty days, the obligee or the department may seek direct enforcement of the coverage through the obligor's employer or union without further notice to the obligor as provided under chapter 26.18 RCW; ((and))

             (a) Shall be omitted from an order entered under the administrative procedure act. When the physical custodian's address is omitted from an order, the order shall state that the custodian's address is known to the office of support enforcement.

             (b) A responsible parent may request the physical custodian's residence address by submission of a request for disclosure under RCW 26.23.120 to the office of support enforcement.

             (7) The superior court clerk, the office of administrative hearings, and the department of social and health services shall, within five days of entry, forward to the Washington state support registry, a true and correct copy of all superior court orders or administrative orders establishing or modifying a support obligation which provide that support payments shall be made to the support registry. If a superior court order entered prior to January 1, 1988, directs the responsible parent to make support payments to the clerk, the clerk shall send a true and correct copy of the support order and the payment record to the registry for enforcement action when the clerk identifies that a payment is more than fifteen days past due. The office of support enforcement shall reimburse the clerk for the reasonable costs of copying and sending copies of court orders to the registry at the reimbursement rate provided in Title IV-D of the social security act.

             (8) Receipt of a support order by the registry or other action under this section on behalf of a person or persons who have not made a written application for support enforcement services to the office of support enforcement and who are not recipients of public assistance is deemed to be a request for payment services only.

             (9) After the responsible parent has been ordered or notified to make payments to the Washington state support registry under this section, the responsible parent shall be fully responsible for making all payments to the Washington state support registry and shall be subject to payroll deduction or other income withholding action. The responsible parent shall not be entitled to credit against a support obligation for any payments made to a person or agency other than to the Washington state support registry except as provided under RCW 74.20.101. A civil action may be brought by the payor to recover payments made to persons or agencies who have received and retained support moneys paid contrary to the provisions of this section.

                                                                                     Obligor


             The above-named obligee claims that the above-named obligor is subject to a support order requiring immediate income withholding or is more than fifteen days past due in either child support or spousal maintenance payments, or both, in an amount equal to or greater than the child support or spousal maintenance payable for one month. The amount of the accrued child support or spousal maintenance debt as of this date is . . . . . . dollars, the amount of arrearage payments specified in the support or spousal maintenance order (if applicable) is . . . . . . dollars per . . . . . ., and the amount of the current and continuing support or spousal maintenance obligation under the order is . . . . . . dollars per . . . . . .

             You are hereby commanded to answer this order by filling in the attached form according to the instructions, and you must mail or deliver the original of the answer to the court, one copy to the Washington state support registry, one copy to the obligee or obligee's attorney, and one copy to the obligor within twenty days after service of this wage assignment order upon you.

             If you possess any earnings or other remuneration for employment due and owing to the obligor, then you shall do as follows:

             (1) Withhold from the obligor's earnings or remuneration each month, or from each regular earnings disbursement, the lesser of:

             (a) The sum of the accrued support or spousal maintenance debt and the current support or spousal maintenance obligation;

             (b) The sum of the specified arrearage payment amount and the current support or spousal maintenance obligation; or

             (c) Fifty percent of the disposable earnings or remuneration of the obligor.

             (2) The total amount withheld above is subject to the wage assignment order, and all other sums may be disbursed to the obligor.

             (3) Upon receipt of this wage assignment order you shall make immediate deductions from the obligor's earnings or remuneration and remit to the Washington state support registry or other address specified below the proper amounts at each regular pay interval.

             You shall continue to withhold the ordered amounts from nonexempt earnings or remuneration of the obligor until notified by:

             (a) The court that the wage assignment has been modified or terminated; or

             (b) The addressee specified in the wage assignment order under this section that the accrued child support or spousal maintenance debt has been paid.

             You shall promptly notify the court and the addressee specified in the wage assignment order under this section if and when the employee is no longer employed by you, or if the obligor no longer receives earnings or remuneration from you. If you no longer employ the employee, the wage assignment order shall remain in effect for one year after the employee has left your employment or you are no longer in possession of any earnings or remuneration owed to the employee, whichever is later. You shall continue to hold the wage assignment order during that period. If the employee returns to your employment during the one-year period you shall immediately begin to withhold the employee's earnings according to the terms of the wage assignment order. If the employee has not returned to your employment within one year, the wage assignment will cease to have effect at the expiration of the one-year period, unless you still owe the employee earnings or other remuneration.

             You shall deliver the withheld earnings or remuneration to the Washington state support registry or other address stated below at each regular pay interval.

             You shall deliver a copy of this order to the obligor as soon as is reasonably possible.

WHETHER OR NOT YOU OWE ANYTHING TO THE OBLIGOR, YOUR FAILURE TO ANSWER AS REQUIRED MAY MAKE YOU LIABLE FOR OBLIGOR'S CLAIMED SUPPORT OR SPOUSAL MAINTENANCE DEBT TO THE OBLIGEE OR SUBJECT TO CONTEMPT OF COURT.


             NOTICE TO OBLIGOR: YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO REQUEST A HEARING IN THE SUPERIOR COURT THAT ISSUED THIS WAGE ASSIGNMENT ORDER, TO REQUEST THAT THE COURT QUASH, MODIFY, OR TERMINATE THE WAGE ASSIGNMENT ORDER. REGARDLESS OF THE FACT THAT YOUR WAGES ARE BEING WITHHELD PURSUANT TO THIS ORDER, YOU MAY BE DENIED OR HAVE SUSPENDED OR NOT RENEWED A PROFESSIONAL, DRIVER'S, OR OTHER LICENSE IF YOU ACCRUE CHILD SUPPORT ARREARAGES TOTALING MORE THAN SIX MONTHS OF CHILD SUPPORT PAYMENTS OR FAIL TO MAKE PAYMENTS TOWARDS A SUPPORT ARREARAGE IN AN AMOUNT THAT EXCEEDS SIX MONTHS OF PAYMENTS.

             Sec. 612. RCW 26.23.060 and 1994 c 230 s 10 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) The office of support enforcement may issue a notice of payroll deduction:

             (a) As authorized by a support order that contains the income withholding notice provisions in RCW 26.23.050 or a substantially similar notice; or

             (b) After service of a notice containing an income withholding provision under this chapter or chapter 74.20A RCW.

             (2) The office of support enforcement shall serve a notice of payroll deduction upon a responsible parent's employer or upon the employment security department for the state in possession of or owing any benefits from the unemployment compensation fund to the responsible parent pursuant to Title 50 RCW by personal service or by any form of mail requiring a return receipt.

             (3) Service of a notice of payroll deduction upon an employer or employment security department requires the employer or employment security department to immediately make a mandatory payroll deduction from the responsible parent's unpaid disposable earnings or unemployment compensation benefits. The employer or employment security department shall thereafter deduct each pay period the amount stated in the notice divided by the number of pay periods per month. The payroll deduction each pay period shall not exceed fifty percent of the responsible parent's disposable earnings.

             (4) A notice of payroll deduction for support shall have priority over any wage assignment, garnishment, attachment, or other legal process.

             (5) The notice of payroll deduction shall be in writing and include:

             (a) The name and social security number of the responsible parent;

             (b) The amount to be deducted from the responsible parent's disposable earnings each month, or alternate amounts and frequencies as may be necessary to facilitate processing of the payroll deduction;

             (c) A statement that the total amount withheld shall not exceed fifty percent of the responsible parent's disposable earnings; ((and))

             (d) The address to which the payments are to be mailed or delivered; and

             (e) A notice to the responsible parent warning the responsible parent that, despite the payroll deduction, the responsible parent's privileges to obtain and maintain a license, as defined in section 502 of this act, may be denied, not renewed, or suspended if the parent is not in compliance with a support order as defined in section 502 of this act.

             (6) An informational copy of the notice of payroll deduction shall be mailed to the last known address of the responsible parent by regular mail.

             (7) An employer or employment security department that receives a notice of payroll deduction shall make immediate deductions from the responsible parent's unpaid disposable earnings and remit proper amounts to the Washington state support registry on each date the responsible parent is due to be paid.

             (8) An employer, or the employment security department, upon whom a notice of payroll deduction is served, shall make an answer to the office of support enforcement within twenty days after the date of service. The answer shall confirm compliance and institution of the payroll deduction or explain the circumstances if no payroll deduction is in effect. The answer shall also state whether the responsible parent is employed by or receives earnings from the employer or receives unemployment compensation benefits from the employment security department, whether the employer or employment security department anticipates paying earnings or unemployment compensation benefits and the amount of earnings. If the responsible parent is no longer employed, or receiving earnings from the employer, the answer shall state the present employer's name and address, if known. If the responsible parent is no longer receiving unemployment compensation benefits from the employment security department, the answer shall state the present employer's name and address, if known.

             (9) The employer or employment security department may deduct a processing fee from the remainder of the responsible parent's earnings after withholding under the notice of payroll deduction, even if the remainder is exempt under RCW 26.18.090. The processing fee may not exceed: (a) Ten dollars for the first disbursement made to the Washington state support registry; and (b) one dollar for each subsequent disbursement to the registry.

             (10) The notice of payroll deduction shall remain in effect until released by the office of support enforcement, the court enters an order terminating the notice and approving an alternate arrangement under RCW 26.23.050(2), or one year has expired since the employer has employed the responsible parent or has been in possession of or owing any earnings to the responsible parent or the employment security department has been in possession of or owing any unemployment compensation benefits to the responsible parent.


PART VII. WELFARE EVALUATION AND EFFECTIVENESS STUDIES


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 701. A new section is added to chapter 44.28 RCW to read as follows:

             (1) The legislative budget committee shall conduct an evaluation of the effectiveness of the programs described in chapter . . ., Laws of 1996 (this act). The evaluation shall assess the success of the programs in assisting clients to become employed and to reduce their use of aid to families with dependent children. It may include, but not be limited to:

             (a) The costs and effectiveness of the programs;

             (b) The extent to which work and job training opportunities have led to employment outcomes and economic independence;

             (c) An analysis of aid to families with dependent children outcomes, including grant amounts and program exits, for clients; and

             (d) An audit of performance-based contracts to providers offering job opportunities and basic skills training program services.

             (2) Administrative data shall be provided by the department of social and health services, the employment security department, the state board for community and technical colleges, local government providers, and private contractors. The department of social and health services shall require contractors to provide administrative and outcome data needed for this evaluation.

             (3) Additional data may be collected directly from clients if not available from administrative records.

             (4) The legislative budget committee may convene an evaluation advisory group to assist in the study process. It may contract for services necessary to accomplish the purposes of this section.

             (5) The legislative budget committee shall present an evaluation plan to the legislature after consultation with the federal government on the design of the evaluation.

             (6) The legislative budget committee shall submit annual reports to the legislature, beginning in December 1999, with a final report due in December 2003, unless an earlier date is recommended by the committee.


PART VIII. MISCELLANEOUS


             Sec. 801. RCW 74.04.005 and 1992 c 165 s 1 and 1992 c 136 s 1 are each reenacted and amended to read as follows:

             For the purposes of this title, unless the context indicates otherwise, the following definitions shall apply:

             (1) "Public assistance" or "assistance"—Public aid to persons in need thereof for any cause, including services, medical care, assistance grants, disbursing orders, work relief, general assistance and federal-aid assistance.

             (2) "Department"—The department of social and health services.

             (3) "County or local office"—The administrative office for one or more counties or designated service areas.

             (4) "Director" or "secretary" means the secretary of social and health services.

             (5) "Federal-aid assistance"—The specific categories of assistance for which provision is made in any federal law existing or hereafter passed by which payments are made from the federal government to the state in aid or in respect to payment by the state for public assistance rendered to any category of needy persons for which provision for federal funds or aid may from time to time be made, or a federally administered needs-based program.

             (6)(a) "General assistance"—Aid to persons in need who:

             (i) Are not eligible to receive federal-aid assistance, other than food stamps and medical assistance; however, an individual who refuses or fails to cooperate in obtaining federal-aid assistance, without good cause, is not eligible for general assistance;

             (ii) Meet one of the following conditions:

             (A) Pregnant: PROVIDED, That need is based on the current income and resource requirements of the federal aid to families with dependent children program: PROVIDED FURTHER, That during any period in which an aid for dependent children employable program is not in operation, only those pregnant women who are categorically eligible for medicaid are eligible for general assistance; or

             (B) Subject to chapter 165, Laws of 1992, incapacitated from gainful employment by reason of bodily or mental infirmity that will likely continue for a minimum of ninety days as determined by the department.

             (C) Persons who are unemployable due to alcohol or drug addiction are not eligible for general assistance. Persons receiving general assistance on July 26, 1987, or becoming eligible for such assistance thereafter, due to an alcohol or drug-related incapacity, shall be referred to appropriate assessment, treatment, shelter, or supplemental security income referral services as authorized under chapter 74.50 RCW. Referrals shall be made at the time of application or at the time of eligibility review. Alcoholic and drug addicted clients who are receiving general assistance on July 26, 1987, may remain on general assistance if they otherwise retain their eligibility until they are assessed for services under chapter 74.50 RCW. Subsection (6)(a)(ii)(B) of this section shall not be construed to prohibit the department from granting general assistance benefits to alcoholics and drug addicts who are incapacitated due to other physical or mental conditions that meet the eligibility criteria for the general assistance program;

             (iii) Are citizens or aliens lawfully admitted for permanent residence or otherwise residing in the United States under color of law; and

             (iv) Have furnished the department their social security account number. If the social security account number cannot be furnished because it has not been issued or is not known, an application for a number shall be made prior to authorization of assistance, and the social security number shall be provided to the department upon receipt.

             (b) Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (6)(a)(i), (ii), and (c) of this section, general assistance shall be provided to the following recipients of federal-aid assistance:

             (i) Recipients of supplemental security income whose need, as defined in this section, is not met by such supplemental security income grant because of separation from a spouse; or

             (ii) To the extent authorized by the legislature in the biennial appropriations act, to recipients of aid to families with dependent children whose needs are not being met because of a temporary reduction in monthly income below the entitled benefit payment level caused by loss or reduction of wages or unemployment compensation benefits or some other unforeseen circumstances. The amount of general assistance authorized shall not exceed the difference between the entitled benefit payment level and the amount of income actually received.

             (c) General assistance shall be provided only to persons who are not members of assistance units receiving federal aid assistance, except as provided in subsection (6)(a)(ii)(A) and (b) of this section, and will accept available services which can reasonably be expected to enable the person to work or reduce the need for assistance unless there is good cause to refuse. Failure to accept such services shall result in termination until the person agrees to cooperate in accepting such services and subject to the following maximum periods of ineligibility after reapplication:

             (i) First failure: One week;

             (ii) Second failure within six months: One month;

             (iii) Third and subsequent failure within one year: Two months.

             (d) Persons found eligible for general assistance based on incapacity from gainful employment may, if otherwise eligible, receive general assistance pending application for federal supplemental security income benefits. Any general assistance that is subsequently duplicated by the person's receipt of supplemental security income for the same period shall be considered a debt due the state and shall by operation of law be subject to recovery through all available legal remedies.

             (e) The department shall adopt by rule medical criteria for general assistance eligibility to ensure that eligibility decisions are consistent with statutory requirements and are based on clear, objective medical information.

             (f) The process implementing the medical criteria shall involve consideration of opinions of the treating or consulting physicians or health care professionals regarding incapacity, and any eligibility decision which rejects uncontroverted medical opinion must set forth clear and convincing reasons for doing so.

             (g) Recipients of general assistance based upon a finding of incapacity from gainful employment who remain otherwise eligible shall not have their benefits terminated absent a clear showing of material improvement in their medical or mental condition or specific error in the prior determination that found the recipient eligible by reason of incapacitation. Recipients of general assistance based upon pregnancy who relinquish their child for adoption, remain otherwise eligible, and are not eligible to receive benefits under the federal aid to families with dependent children program shall not have their benefits terminated until the end of the month in which the period of six weeks following the birth of the recipient's child falls. Recipients of the federal aid to families with dependent children program who lose their eligibility solely because of the birth and relinquishment of the qualifying child may receive general assistance through the end of the month in which the period of six weeks following the birth of the child falls.

             (7) "Applicant"—Any person who has made a request, or on behalf of whom a request has been made, to any county or local office for assistance.

             (8) "Recipient"—Any person receiving assistance and in addition those dependents whose needs are included in the recipient's assistance.

             (9) "Standards of assistance"—The level of income required by an applicant or recipient to maintain a level of living specified by the department.

             (10) "Resource"—Any asset, tangible or intangible, owned by or available to the applicant at the time of application, which can be applied toward meeting the applicant's need, either directly or by conversion into money or its equivalent: PROVIDED, That an applicant may retain the following described resources and not be ineligible for public assistance because of such resources.

             (a) A home, which is defined as real property owned and used by an applicant or recipient as a place of residence, together with a reasonable amount of property surrounding and contiguous thereto, which is used by and useful to the applicant. Whenever a recipient shall cease to use such property for residential purposes, either for himself or his dependents, the property shall be considered as a resource which can be made available to meet need, and if the recipient or his dependents absent themselves from the home for a period of ninety consecutive days such absence, unless due to hospitalization or health reasons or a natural disaster, shall raise a rebuttable presumption of abandonment: PROVIDED, That if in the opinion of three physicians the recipient will be unable to return to the home during his lifetime, and the home is not occupied by a spouse or dependent children or disabled sons or daughters, such property shall be considered as a resource which can be made available to meet need.

             (b) Household furnishings and personal effects and other personal property having great sentimental value to the applicant or recipient, as limited by the department consistent with limitations on resources and exemptions for federal aid assistance.

             (c) A motor vehicle, other than a motor home, used and useful having an equity value not to exceed ((one)) five thousand ((five hundred)) dollars.

             (d) All other resources, including any excess of values exempted, not to exceed one thousand dollars or other limit as set by the department, to be consistent with limitations on resources and exemptions necessary for federal aid assistance. The department shall also allow recipients of aid to families with dependent children to exempt savings accounts with combined balances of up to an additional three thousand dollars.

             (e) Applicants for or recipients of general assistance shall have their eligibility based on resource limitations consistent with the aid to families with dependent children program rules adopted by the department.

             (f) If an applicant for or recipient of public assistance possesses property and belongings in excess of the ceiling value, such value shall be used in determining the need of the applicant or recipient, except that: (i) The department may exempt resources or income when the income and resources are determined necessary to the applicant's or recipient's restoration to independence, to decrease the need for public assistance, or to aid in rehabilitating the applicant or recipient or a dependent of the applicant or recipient; and (ii) the department may provide grant assistance for a period not to exceed nine months from the date the agreement is signed pursuant to this section to persons who are otherwise ineligible because of excess real property owned by such persons when they are making a good faith effort to dispose of that property: PROVIDED, That:

             (A) The applicant or recipient signs an agreement to repay the lesser of the amount of aid received or the net proceeds of such sale;

             (B) If the owner of the excess property ceases to make good faith efforts to sell the property, the entire amount of assistance may become an overpayment and a debt due the state and may be recovered pursuant to RCW 43.20B.630;

             (C) Applicants and recipients are advised of their right to a fair hearing and afforded the opportunity to challenge a decision that good faith efforts to sell have ceased, prior to assessment of an overpayment under this section; and

             (D) At the time assistance is authorized, the department files a lien without a sum certain on the specific property.

             (11) "Income"—(a) All appreciable gains in real or personal property (cash or kind) or other assets, which are received by or become available for use and enjoyment by an applicant or recipient during the month of application or after applying for or receiving public assistance. The department may by rule and regulation exempt income received by an applicant for or recipient of public assistance which can be used by him to decrease his need for public assistance or to aid in rehabilitating him or his dependents, but such exemption shall not, unless otherwise provided in this title, exceed the exemptions of resources granted under this chapter to an applicant for public assistance. In determining the amount of assistance to which an applicant or recipient of aid to families with dependent children is entitled, the department is hereby authorized to disregard as a resource or income the earned income exemptions consistent with federal requirements. The department may permit the above exemption of earnings of a child to be retained by such child to cover the cost of special future identifiable needs even though the total exceeds the exemptions or resources granted to applicants and recipients of public assistance, but consistent with federal requirements. In formulating rules and regulations pursuant to this chapter, the department shall define income and resources and the availability thereof, consistent with federal requirements.

             Sec. 805. RCW 74.08.080 and 1989 c 175 s 145 are each amended to read as follows:

             (b) An applicant or recipient has no right to an adjudicative proceeding when the sole basis for the department's decision is a state or federal law that requires an assistance adjustment for a class of recipients.

             (c) An applicant or recipient may not use the defense of equitable estoppel or any other equitable defenses in any adjudicative proceeding involving public assistance.

             (2) The adjudicative proceeding is governed by the Administrative Procedure Act, chapter 34.05 RCW, and this subsection.

             (a) The applicant or recipient must file the application for an adjudicative proceeding with the secretary within ninety days after receiving notice of the aggrieving decision.

             (b) The hearing shall be conducted at the local community services office or other location in Washington convenient to the appellant.

             (c) The appellant or his or her representative has the right to inspect his or her department file and, upon request, to receive copies of department documents relevant to the proceedings free of charge.

             (e) The department is limited to recovering an overpayment arising from assistance being continued pending the adjudicative proceeding to the amount recoverable up to the sixtieth day after the secretary's receipt of the application for an adjudicative proceeding.

             (f) If the final adjudicative order is made in favor of the appellant, assistance shall be paid from the date of denial of the application for assistance or thirty days following the date of application for aid to families with dependent children or forty-five days after date of application for all other programs, whichever is sooner; or in the case of a recipient, from the effective date of the local community services office decision.

             (g) This subsection applies only to an adjudicative proceeding in which the appellant is an applicant for or recipient of medical assistance or the limited casualty program for the medically needy and the issue is his or her eligibility or ineligibility due to the assignment or transfer of a resource. The burden is on the department to prove by a preponderance of the evidence that the person knowingly and willingly assigned or transferred the resource at less than market value for the purpose of qualifying or continuing to qualify for medical assistance or the limited casualty program for the medically needy. If the prevailing party in the adjudicative proceeding is the applicant or recipient, he or she is entitled to reasonable attorney's fees.

             (3)(a) When a person files a petition for judicial review as provided in RCW 34.05.514 of an adjudicative order entered in a public assistance program, no filing fee shall be collected from the person and no bond shall be required on any appeal. In the event that the superior court, the court of appeals, or the supreme court renders a decision in favor of the appellant, said appellant shall be entitled to reasonable attorney's fees and costs. If a decision of the court is made in favor of the appellant, assistance shall be paid from date of the denial of the application for assistance or thirty days after the application for aid to families with dependent children or forty-five days following the date of application, whichever is sooner; or in the case of a recipient, from the effective date of the local community services office decision.


             Sec. 806. RCW 74.08.340 and 1959 c 26 s 74.08.340 are each amended to read as follows:

             All assistance granted under this title shall be deemed to be granted and to be held subject to the provisions of any amending or repealing act that may hereafter be enacted, and no recipient shall have any claim for compensation, or otherwise, by reason of his assistance being affected in any way by such amending or repealing act. There is no entitlement to public assistance. Public assistance shall be considered solely as a charitable gesture or gift on the part of the state, which at any time may be discontinued.

The internship certificate established under section 4 of this act allows an eligible person to teach in the state of Washington as a substitute for an internship candidate only. All eligible persons shall provide this release time under the guidance and supervision of the school district and the school principal.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 4. A new section is added to chapter 28A.410 RCW to read as follows:

             (1) An individual may obtain an internship certificate that allows the individual to teach in the state of Washington in order to provide release time for internship candidates under the internship support programs. Each candidate for an internship certificate shall:

             (a) Possess a baccalaureate degree in the arts, sciences, or humanities from a college or university accredited by the Northwest association of schools and colleges or an equivalent accrediting organization;

             (b) Have at least five years work experience relevant to the subject area or sufficient knowledge of the subject area to be taught. The superintendent of the school district shall determine, on a case-by-case basis, what constitutes sufficient knowledge.

             (c) Meet the age and character requirements established by the state board of education for all certificated school staff, including compliance with the background check through the Washington state patrol criminal investigation system and the federal bureau of investigation as required under RCW 28A.410.010; and

             (d) Possess a contract for substitute or release time employment in a school district of the state.

             (2) Before beginning teaching under the internship certificate, the candidate shall develop with his or her employing school district and the school principal a written plan for training, supervision, guidance, and support to be provided to the candidate by the district and the principal for the duration of the internship certificate. The internship plan shall include, but not be limited to: training under the guidance of the school principal; assignment by the district of a mentor teacher; and completion of evaluations under the school district's teacher evaluation procedures. School districts or principals may require candidates to successfully complete preservice training before and during teaching. However, school districts or principals may not require that candidates participate in more training than is required of other teachers in the school district.

             This program shall be coordinated with the internship support programs. An individual teaching under the internship certificate may be hired only to provide release time for principal, program administrator, or superintendent internship candidates. Principal internship candidates, as part of their training, may assist the school principal in the evaluation of the internship certificate holder.

             (3) The internship certificate allows the holder full authority to serve as a part-time or full-time teacher. The certificate shall be valid for not more than two years of full-time teaching or its equivalent.

             (4) Internship certification developed under this section shall be available beginning in the 1996-97 school year."

SPEAKER'S RULING


             Representative Sherstad, the Speaker is prepared to rule on your point of order which requested a scope and object ruling on amendment 452 to Engrossed Substitute Senate Bill No. 6392.

             The title of the bill is: AN ACT Relating to disclosure by managed care entities.

             The purpose of the act is to provide medical care consumers with more information about what is covered by their medical plans.

             The amendment, unlike the bill, attempts to control what language must be or not be in a policy, and goes beyond simply disclosing information.

             The Speaker finds that amendment 452 goes beyond both the scope of the title and the object of Engrossed Substitute Senate Bill No. 6392.


             Representative Sherstad, your point of order is well taken.


             There being no objection, the committee amendment as amended was adopted.

             Strike everything after the enacting clause and insert the following:


             "NEW SECTION. Sec. 1. The legislature finds a fundamental difference between providing certain health care services to inmates who are under a sentence of death or whose death sentence is under appellate review and providing such services to inmates who have been sentenced to life or to a lesser term. The people of Washington state should not be required to provide or pay for health care services not otherwise constitutionally required for inmates who are under a sentence of death or whose death sentence is under appellate review.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 2. A new section is added to chapter 72.10 RCW to read as follows:

             (l) For an inmate who is under a sentence of death or whose

death sentence is under appellate review, the department may provide basic, non-emergency health care services, including administration of medication necessary for pain relief or to prevent infection or contagion, but shall not use any public funds to provide a life-saving health care procedure. The department may, however, provide procedures such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation, the Heimlich maneuver, and other similar, basic emergency life-saving procedures.

             (2) For purposes of this section, the term "life-saving health care procedure" means a medical or surgical treatment or intervention to sustain, restore, or replace a bodily function, where failure to perform the treatment or intervention may result in the inmate's death. This term includes, but is not limited to, open-heart surgery, organ transplants, bone marrow transplants, and chemotherapy.

             (3) The inmate shall be responsible for the costs of any health care services obtained or provided unless the provision of the health care service is otherwise required by law as determined to be binding upon the state of Washington by a court of competent jurisdiction. Under the authority granted under RCW 72.01.050(2), the secretary shall direct the superintendent to collect the amount due directly from the offender's institution account. If the balance of the account is insufficient to meet the costs of the health care services provided, the department may obtain a judgment and may obtain a lien on any real property owned by the offender. The inmate shall be provided due process to defend against the lien before the department may enforce the judgment against any real property owned by the inmate.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 3. If any provision of this act or its application to any person or circumstance is held invalid, the remainder of the act or the application of the provision to other persons or circumstances is not affected."


             Correct the title accordingly.

             SUBSTITUTE SENATE BILL NO. 6543, by Senate Committee on Ecology & Parks (originally sponsored by Senators Fraser, Haugen and Swecker)

 

Making adjustments to provisions integrating growth management planning and environmental review.


             The bill was read the second time. Committee on Government Operations recommendation: Majority, do pass as amended. (For committee amendment, see Journal, 47 Day, February 23, 1996.)


             There being no objection, the committee amendment was moved.


POINT OF ORDER


             Representative Rust: Thank you Mr. Speaker. I would request a ruling on the scope and objection on the committee amendment.


SPEAKER'S RULING


             Representative Rust, the Speaker is prepared to rule on your point of order which raised scope and object objections to the committee amendment to Substitute Senate Bill No. 6543.

             The title of Substitute Senate Bill No. 6543 is: AN ACT Relating to making technical corrections to the omnibus 1995 legislation that integrates growth management planning and environmental review, and conforming the terminology and provisions of subdivision, zoning, and other laws to the provisions of such legislation.

             The title attempts to narrow the scope of a very broad subject area. The bill seems to amend most of the Revised Code of Washington.

             If the bill that came from the Senate only contained technical corrections to the 1995 act and made no new policy decisions, that Speaker would quite easily rule the House committee amendment beyond both the scope of the title and the object of the bill.

             In addition to dozens of technical corrections the Senate bill adds a distinction between pre-decision appeals and post decision appeals to the permitting process that was not a part of the 1995 act.

             The Senate bill allows the county or city to provide for separate appeals of SEPA decisions, which was not in the 1995 act.

             The Senate bill alters the time lines of the 120 day consolidated permitting procedures in a manner not found in the 1995 act.

             The Senate amendments as passed in Substitute Senate Bill No. 6543 do open the bill to some non-technical amendments.

             The Speaker finds that at least three of the house proposals contained in the striker are not technical, they are in the area of subdivisions and platting, Sepa Categorical exemptions, and state agency development permits. The SEPA Categorical exemptions are the most troubling in terms of finding the house amendment to be within the scope and object of the Substitute Senate Bill No. 6543.

             The Speaker finds is unable to conclude that the amendment is clearly outside the scope and object of Substitute Senate Bill No. 6543.


             Representative Rust, your point of order is not well taken.


             There being no objection, the committee amendment was moved.


             Representative Elliot moved the adoption of the following amendment to the committee amendment by Representative Elliot:


             On page 36, after line 30 of the amendment, insert the following:


             "NEW SECTION. Sec. 1. The legislature recognizes that the availability of minerals through surface mining is essential to the economic well-being of the state and nation. The citizens of the state are rapidly running out of approved or designated sites to extract these minerals. Therefore, the available sources of these minerals are nearly exhausted.

             The state has enacted several laws in recent years directing local governments to make land use decisions for appropriate uses of land through designation in advance of or during the comprehensive planning process and then to limit the specific approval process to mitigating specific impacts of the use or uses allowed by the designation. The current planning and regulatory environment makes economically viable permits unobtainable for the vast majority of the sites where the minerals are located and needed.

             The cost of transportation of minerals for any significant distance can have a compounding effect on the costs to the taxpayers of the state. Surface mining must take place in diverse areas where the geologic, topographic, climatic, biologic, and social conditions are significantly different, and reclamation specifications must vary accordingly. But surface mining is a finite use of the land and another beneficial use must follow through reclamation.

             Therefore, the legislature finds that designation, production, and conservation of adequate sources of minerals under section 35 of this act is in the best interests of the citizens of the state.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 2. A new section is added to chapter 36.70A RCW to read as follows:

             (1)(a) Where the county has classified mineral lands pursuant to RCW 36.70A.050 and mineral resource lands of long-term commercial significance exist, a county shall designate sufficient mineral resource lands in the comprehensive plans to meet the projected twenty-year, county-wide need. Once designated, mineral resource uses, including operations as defined in RCW 78.44.031, shall be established as an allowed use in local development regulations.

             (b) The county shall designate mineral resource deposits, both active and inactive, in economically viable proximity to locations where the deposits are likely to be used.

             (c) This section has no applicability to metals mining and milling operations as defined in RCW 78.56.020.

             (d) Proximity provisions of (b) of this subsection and subsection (5)(a) of this section do not apply to metallic placer, dolomite, limestone, magnesite, or quartzite deposits, and any activity related to the development or operation of such deposits.

             (2) Nothing in this section precludes any unit of government from accepting the lowest responsible bid for purchase of mineral materials, regardless of source.

             (3) Through its comprehensive plan and development regulations, as defined in RCW 36.70A.030, a county, city, or town shall discourage the siting of new applications of incompatible uses adjacent to mineral resource industries, deposits, and holdings.

             (4) Any additions or amendments to comprehensive plans or development regulations required by this section shall be adopted at the next regularly scheduled amendment of the comprehensive plan or development regulations which occurs at least six months after the effective date of this section.

             (5) For the purposes of this section:

             (a) "Long-term commercial significance" includes the mineral composition of the land for long-term economically viable commercial production, in consideration with the mineral resource land's proximity to population areas, product markets, and the possibility of more intense uses of the land.

             (b) "Allowed use" means the use or uses specified by local development regulations as appropriate within those areas designated through the advance or comprehensive planning process. Once designated, a proposed allowed use shall be reviewed for project specific impacts and may be conditioned to mitigate significant adverse impacts within the context of site plan approval, but such review shall not revisit the question of land use.

             (6) Nothing in this section shall modify the procedures and requirements of chapter 43.21C RCW and allowed uses shall be reviewed in accordance with chapter 43.21C RCW."


             Renumber the remaining section consecutively.


             On page 37, line 6 of the title amendment, after "43.05 RCW;" insert "adding a new section to chapter 36.70A RCW; creating a new section;"


POINT OF ORDER


             Representative Rust: Thank you Mr. Speaker. I would request a ruling on the scope and object on the committee amendment to Substitute Senate Bill No. 6543.


             There being no objection the committee amendment was adopted.


SPEAKER'S RULING


             Representative Rust, the Speaker is prepared to rule on your point of order which requested a scope and object ruling on Representative Elliot's amendment to the House committee amendment to Substitute Senate Bill No. 6543.

             As noted just moments ago, the title of Substitute Senate Bill No. 6543 is narrow but covers the very broad area of growth management planning.

             The proposed amendment would require counties to designate mineral resource deposits sufficient to meet the county 20 year plan. While this might be a good idea, it is an idea not found in the bill that came from the Senate and not within the nature of the non-technical amendments added by the Senate and proposed by the House committee.

             The proposed amendment is beyond object of both the bill and the House committee amendment.


             Representative Rust, your point of order is well taken.


             There being no objection, the rules were suspended, the second reading considered the third and the bill was placed on final passage.


             Representative Reams spoke in favor of passage of the bill.


             Representative Rust spoke against passage of the bill.


             The Speaker stated the question before the House to be final passage of Substitute Senate Bill No. 6543 as amended by the House.

             The Clerk called the roll on the final passage of Substitute Senate Bill No. 6543 as amended by the House and the bill passed the House by the following vote: Yeas - 69, Nays - 28, Absent - 0, Excused - 1.

             ENGROSSED SUBSTITUTE SENATE BILL NO. 6168, by Senate Committee on Law & Justice (originally sponsored by Senators Smith, Johnson, Newhouse and Winsley)

 

Amending the limited liability companies act.


             The bill was read the second time.


             Representative Appelwick moved the adoption of the following amendment by Representative Appelwick:


             On page 3, after line 24, insert the following:


             "Sec. 1. RCW 25.04.720 and 1995 c 337 s 5 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) A person or group of persons licensed or otherwise legally authorized to render professional services, as defined in RCW 18.100.030, within this state may organize and become a member or members of a limited liability partnership under the provisions of this chapter for the purposes of rendering professional service. Nothing in this section prohibits a person duly licensed or otherwise legally authorized to render professional services in any jurisdiction other than this state from becoming a member of a limited liability partnership organized for the purpose of rendering the same professional services. Nothing in this section prohibits a limited liability partnership from rendering professional services outside this state through individuals who are not duly licensed or otherwise legally authorized to render such professional services within this state.

             (2)(a) Notwithstanding any other provision of this chapter, health care professionals who are licensed or certified pursuant to chapters 18.06, 18.19, 18.22, 18.25, 18.29, 18.34, 18.35, 18.36A, 18.50, 18.53, 18.55, 18.64, 18.79, 18.83, 18.89, 18.108, and 18.138 RCW may join and render their individual professional services through one limited liability partnership and are to be considered, for the purpose of forming a limited liability partnership, as rendering the "same specific professional services" or "same professional services" or similar terms.

             (b) Notwithstanding any other provision of this chapter, health care professionals who are licensed pursuant to chapters 18.57 and 18.71 RCW may join and render their individual professional services through one limited liability partnership and are to be considered, for the purpose of forming a limited liability partnership, as rendering the "same specific professional services" or "same professional services" or similar terms.

             (c) Formation of a limited liability partnership under this subsection does not restrict the application of the uniform disciplinary act under chapter 18.130 RCW, or any applicable health care professional statutes under Title 18 RCW, including but not limited to restrictions on persons practicing a health profession without being appropriately credentialed and persons practicing beyond the scope of their credential."


             Renumber remaining sections consecutively and correct internal references and the title accordingly.


             Representatives Appelwick and Sheahan spoke in favor of adoption of the amendment.
