             NEW SECTION. Sec. 1. INTENT. The legislature finds that it is in the public interest that the state adopt public assistance policies for needy families that stress: The central role of employment in reducing poverty and need; the temporary nature of public assistance; the importance of the state's efforts in sustaining economic independence and promoting occupational and income advancement; and the continuing responsibility of the state to protect children and other vulnerable residents.

             Therefore, the legislature intends that:

             (1) Work should provide the best opportunity for needy families to raise their incomes and leave poverty;

             (2) Parents should be responsible for support of their children. Child support will be aggressively pursued to assure that responsibility is fulfilled;

             (3) Those recipients who can work shall immediately participate in mandatory work or work preparation activities;

             (4) Sanctions for nonparticipation shall be clear, timely, and progressive;

             (5) Work should pay and the incentives in the system should support unsubsidized employment opportunities;

             (6) Education and job training should be accessible so an entry-level job can be the first step on a career ladder;

             (7) The individual shall sign a statement of personal responsibility, acknowledging responsibility for moving quickly into the world of work;

             (8) The state should help provide the tools for assistance recipients to get and keep a job, and improve their opportunity for advancement;

             (9) Essential services that low and moderate-income families need for sustaining independence, including health care insurance and child care, should be affordable and accessible;

             (10) Assistance should be available for those unable to perform self-sustaining work;

             (11) Individuals temporarily not able to work will be responsible for participating in activities designed to help them achieve self-sufficiency;

             (12) Legal immigrants should be eligible for the same programs as other residents;

             (13) State agencies involved with the temporary assistance for needy families program will be focused on moving people into self-sustaining work;

             (14) The state's goals should be supported by working through public and private providers who are most effective in getting people ready for and into unsubsidized employment;

             (15) Partnerships should be built with local governments, business, labor, and civic and religious organizations to mobilize the resources of communities to help families raise their incomes and leave poverty; and

             (16) WorkFirst should recognize the distinct needs and resources of communities and provide recipients with programs suited to the different labor markets of the state.


I. GENERAL PROVISIONS


             Sec. 101. 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 legal entitlement to temporary assistance for needy families.


             Sec. 102. RCW 74.08.025 and 1981 1st ex.s. c 6 s 9 are each amended to read as follows:

             Public assistance ((shall)) may be awarded to any applicant:

             (1) Who is in need and otherwise meets the eligibility requirements of department assistance programs; and

             (2) Who has not made a voluntary assignment of property or cash for the purpose of qualifying for an assistance grant; and

             (3) Who is not an inmate of a public institution except as a patient in a medical institution or except as an inmate in a public institution who could qualify for federal aid assistance: PROVIDED, That the assistance paid by the department to recipients in nursing homes, or receiving nursing home care, may cover the cost of clothing and incidentals and general maintenance exclusive of medical care and health services. The department may pay a grant to cover the cost of clothing and personal incidentals in public or private medical institutions and institutions for tuberculosis. The department shall allow recipients in nursing homes to retain, in addition to the grant to cover the cost of clothing and incidentals, wages received for work as a part of a training or rehabilitative program designed to prepare the recipient for less restrictive placement to the extent permitted under Title XIX of the federal social security act.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 103. A new section is added to chapter 74.12 RCW to read as follows:

             TIME LIMITS. (1) A family that includes an adult who has received temporary assistance for needy families for sixty months after the effective date of this section shall be ineligible for further temporary assistance for needy families assistance.

             (2) For the purposes of applying the rules of this section, the department shall count any month in which an adult family member received a temporary assistance for needy families cash assistance grant unless the assistance was provided when the family member was a minor child and not the head of the household or married to the head of the household.

             (3) The legislature recognizes that under P.L. 104-193 the department may exempt no more than twenty percent of the temporary assistance for needy families caseload from the sixty-month time limit. The legislature further recognizes that not all adult recipients of temporary assistance for needy families can be expected to attain self-sufficiency within this time limit. Because the sixty-month time limit will not be applicable to recipients until 2002, the legislature further believes that it is appropriate to engage in the study required in section 501 of this act before making decisions about caseload exemptions.


             Sec. 104. RCW 74.12.035 and 1985 c 335 s 1 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) ((A family or assistance unit is not eligible for aid for any month if for that month the total income of the family or assistance unit, without application of income disregards, exceeds one hundred eighty-five percent of the state standard of need for a family of the same composition: PROVIDED, That for the purposes of determining the total income of the family or assistance unit, the earned income of a dependent child who is a full-time student for whom aid to families with dependent children is being provided shall be disregarded for six months per calendar year.

             (2))) Participation in a strike does not constitute good cause to leave or to refuse to seek or accept employment. Assistance is not payable to a family for any month in which any caretaker relative with whom the child is living is, on the last day of the month, participating in a strike. An individual's need shall not be included in determining the amount of aid payable for any month to a family or assistance unit if, on the last day of the month, the individual is participating in a strike.

             (((3))) (2) Children over eighteen years of age and under nineteen years of age who are otherwise eligible for temporary assistance for needy families and who are full-time students ((reasonably expected to complete a program of)) attending secondary school, or the equivalent level of vocational or technical training((, before reaching nineteen years of age)) are eligible to receive ((aid to families with dependent children: PROVIDED HOWEVER, That if such students do not successfully complete such program before reaching nineteen years of age, the assistance rendered under this subsection during such period shall not be a debt due the state)) temporary assistance for needy families.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 105. A new section is added to chapter 74.12A RCW to read as follows:

             GRANT DIVERSION. The legislature recognizes there are low-income employable families who are in danger of becoming reliant on public assistance. With minimal short-term help from the state, these families can remain intact, actively involved in the labor market, and financially self-sufficient. Therefore, the legislature finds it is in the public interest to establish a grant diversion program to help at-risk families remain off temporary assistance for needy families.

             (1) The department may provide state-funded cash aid to meet short-term need, thereby allowing employable low-income families to remain off assistance.

             (2) Diversion assistance may include cash or vouchers in payment for the following needs:

             (a) Child care;

             (b) Housing assistance;

             (c) Transportation-related expenses;

             (d) Food;

             (e) Medical costs not covered under chapter 74.09 RCW; and

             (f) Employment-related expenses that are necessary to keep or obtain paid unsubsidized employment.

             (3) Diversion assistance is available once in each twelve-month period. Recipients of diversion assistance are not included in the temporary assistance for needy families program.

             (4) Diversion assistance may not exceed one thousand five hundred dollars for each instance.

             (5) To be eligible for diversion assistance, a family must otherwise be eligible for, but not receiving, temporary assistance for needy families.

             (6) Families ineligible for temporary assistance for needy families due to sanction, noncompliance, the lump sum income rule, or any other reason are not eligible for diversion assistance.

             (7) Families must provide evidence showing that a bona fide need exists according to subsection (2) of this section in order to be eligible for diversion assistance.

             (8) If the recipient of diversion assistance receives temporary assistance for needy families assistance within a period specified by the department, but not to exceed twelve months following the receipt of diversion assistance, the amount of the diversion assistance shall be recovered by the state by deduction from the recipient's temporary assistance for needy families grant.

             (9) If funds appropriated for grant diversion are exhausted, the department shall discontinue the program in this section.


             Sec. 106. RCW 74.09.510 and 1991 sp.s. c 8 s 8 are each amended to read as follows:

             Medical assistance may be provided in accordance with eligibility requirements established by the department ((of social and health services)), as defined in the social security Title XIX state plan for mandatory categorically needy persons and: (1) Individuals who would be eligible for cash assistance except for their institutional status; (2) individuals who are under twenty-one years of age, who would be eligible for ((aid to families with dependent children)) temporary assistance for needy families, but do not qualify as dependent children and who are in (a) foster care, (b) subsidized adoption, (c) a nursing facility or an intermediate care facility for the mentally retarded, or (d) inpatient psychiatric facilities; (3) the aged, blind, and disabled who: (a) Receive only a state supplement, or (b) would not be eligible for cash assistance if they were not institutionalized; (4) categorically related individuals who ((would be eligible for but choose not to receive cash assistance)) meet the income and resource requirements of the cash assistance programs; (5) individuals who are enrolled in managed health care systems, who have otherwise lost eligibility for medical assistance, but who have not completed a current six-month enrollment in a managed health care system, and who are eligible for federal financial participation under Title XIX of the social security act; (6) children and pregnant women allowed by federal statute for whom funding is appropriated; ((and)) (7) other individuals eligible for medical services under RCW 74.09.035 and 74.09.700 for whom federal financial participation is available under Title XIX of the social security act; and (8) persons allowed by section 1931 of the social security act for whom funding is appropriated.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 107. A new section is added to chapter 74.08 RCW to read as follows:

             GOOD CAUSE EXEMPTIONS. The department shall establish by rule good cause exemptions consistent with the family violence options of Sec. 402 (a)(7) of Title IV-A of the federal social security act as amended by P.L. 104-193. Individuals granted a good cause exemption may not be subject to work requirements, child support cooperation requirements, and time limits of section 103 of this act. The department shall periodically review such exemptions to determine when they are no longer necessary.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 108. A new section is added to chapter 74.12 RCW to read as follows:

             STATE-FUNDED TEMPORARY ASSISTANCE FOR NEEDY FAMILIES. (1) The department may provide state-funded temporary assistance for needy families and medical assistance to needy families if: The needy caretaker relative is disabled; the needy caretaker relative is needed in the home to care for a disabled family member; or the needy nonparent caretaker relative is at least fifty years old.

             (2) Such assistance shall be provided under the same rules and in the same amount as under the temporary assistance for needy families program except: Such families shall not be subject to temporary assistance for needy families WorkFirst requirements unless they volunteer and they will not be subject to the sixty-month time limit in section 103 of this act.

             (3) The department may use state funds as appropriated to provide such benefits.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 109. The following acts or parts of acts are each repealed:

It is the intent of WorkFirst to aid a participant's progress to self-sufficiency by allowing flexibility within the state-wide program to reflect community resources, the local characteristics of the labor market, and the composition of the caseload. Program success will be enhanced through effective coordination at regional and local levels, involving employers, labor representatives, educators, community leaders, local governments, and social service providers.

The standard of need may take into account the economies of joint living arrangements, but unless explicitly required by federal statute, there shall not be proration of any portion of assistance grants unless the amount of the grant standard is equal to the standard of need.

             The department is authorized to establish rateable reductions and grant maximums consistent with federal law. Further, the department may adjust payment standards, within each WorkFirst service area, by up to five percent, either up or down, to reflect labor market conditions, resources needed to support work and mobilize and leverage local resources, or cost-of-living differences within local geographic areas.

             Payment level will be equal to need or a lesser amount if rateable reductions or grant maximums are imposed. In no case shall a recipient of supplemental security income receive a state supplement less than the minimum required by federal law.

             (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)) temporary assistance for needy families 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)) temporary assistance for needy families 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.

             (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 thousand five hundred dollars. Recipients of temporary assistance for needy families may retain a motor vehicle, other than a motor home, used and useful having an equity value not to exceed five thousand 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 temporary assistance for needy families 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)) temporary assistance for needy families 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

In determining the amount of assistance to which an applicant or recipient of ((aid to families with dependent children)) temporary assistance for needy families 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. All resources and income not specifically exempted, and any income or other economic benefit derived from the use of, or appreciation in value of, exempt resources, shall be considered in determining the need of an applicant or recipient of public assistance.

             (b) If, under applicable federal requirements, the state has the option of considering property in the form of lump sum compensatory awards or related settlements received by an applicant or recipient as income or as a resource, the department shall consider such property to be a resource.

             (12) "Need"—The difference between the applicant's or recipient's standards of assistance for himself and the dependent members of his family, as measured by the standards of the department, and value of all nonexempt resources and nonexempt income received by or available to the applicant or recipient and the dependent members of his family.

             (13) For purposes of determining eligibility for public assistance and participation levels in the cost of medical care, the department shall exempt restitution payments made to people of Japanese and Aleut ancestry pursuant to the Civil Liberties Act of 1988 and the Aleutian and Pribilof Island Restitution Act passed by congress, P.L. 100-383, including all income and resources derived therefrom.

             (14) In the construction of words and phrases used in this title, the singular number shall include the plural, the masculine gender shall include both the feminine and neuter genders and the present tense shall include the past and future tenses, unless the context thereof shall clearly indicate to the contrary.

VIII. LICENSE SUSPENSION


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 801. It is the intent of the legislature to provide a strong incentive for persons owing child 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. To further ensure that child support obligations are met, sections 802 through 898 of this act establish a program by which certain licenses may be suspended or not renewed if a person is one hundred eighty days or more in arrears on child support payments.

             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 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. 802. A new section is added to chapter 74.20A RCW to read as follows:

             (1) 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 service by certified mail is not successful, service shall be by personal service.

             (2) 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 or not renew the parent's license and the department of licensing will suspend or not renew any driver's license that the parent holds until the parent provides the department of licensing and the licensing entity with a 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 may stay action to certify the parent to the department of licensing and any licensing entity for noncompliance with a child support order. 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 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.

             (3) A responsible parent may request an adjudicative proceeding upon service of the notice described in subsection (1) 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:

             (a) The person named as the responsible parent is the responsible parent;

             (b) The responsible parent is required to pay child support under a child support order; and

             (c) The responsible parent is in compliance with the order.

             (4) The decision resulting from the adjudicative proceeding must be in writing and inform the responsible parent of his or her 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.

             (5) 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 make good faith efforts to 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.

             (6) If a responsible parent timely requests an adjudicative proceeding pursuant to subsection (4) of this section, 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.

             (7) The department may certify 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 (1) 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;

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

             (e) The responsible parent fails to comply with a payment schedule established pursuant to subsection (5) of this section.

             The department shall send by regular mail 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.

             (8) The department of licensing and a licensing entity shall, without undue delay, notify a responsible parent certified by the department under subsection (7) of this section 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.

             (9) When a responsible parent who is served notice under subsection (1) of this section subsequently complies with the child support order, the department shall promptly provide the parent with a release stating that the responsible parent is in compliance with the order. A copy of the release shall be transmitted by the department to the appropriate licensing entities.

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

             (11) 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. 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.

             (12) 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 release specified in subsection (9) 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.

             (13) The procedures in chapter . . ., Laws of 1997 (this act), constitute the exclusive administrative remedy for contesting the establishment of noncompliance with a child support order and suspension of a license under this section, and satisfy the requirements of RCW 34.05.422.

The data shared shall be limited to those items necessary to implementation of chapter . . ., Laws of 1997 (this act).

             (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), or section 802 of this act, 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, the suspension shall remain in effect until the person provides a release issued by the department of social and health services 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.

             (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.

             (b) Have received individualized training in a manner approved by the department; and

             (c) Have successfully completed any required examinations.

             Sec. 896. RCW 26.23.050 and 1994 c 230 s 9 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) If the ((office of support enforcement)) division of child support 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)) withholding action may be taken against wages, earnings, assets, or benefits, and liens enforced against real and personal property under the child support statutes of this or any other state, 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 802 of this act, may not be renewed, or may be suspended if the parent is not in compliance with a support order as defined in section 802 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 against wages, earnings, assets, or benefits, and liens enforced against real and personal property under the child support statutes of this or any other state, 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)) withholding action may be taken against wages, earnings, assets, or benefits, and liens enforced against real and personal property under the child support statutes of this or any other state, 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)) division of child support provides support enforcement services under RCW 26.23.045, the existing wage withholding assignment is prospectively superseded upon the ((office of support enforcement's)) division of child support'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 802 of this act, may not be renewed, or may be suspended if the parent is not in compliance with a support order as defined in section 802 of this act. All administrative orders shall also state that ((a notice of payroll deduction may be issued, or other income withholding action taken)) withholding action may be taken against wages, earnings, assets, or benefits, and liens enforced against real and personal property under the child support statutes of this or any other state 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)) withholding action may be taken against wages, earnings, assets, or benefits 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 not be renewed, or may be suspended, the ((office of support enforcement)) division of child support 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)) withholding action may be taken against wages, earnings, assets, or benefits, and liens enforced against real and personal property under the child support statutes of this or any other state, without further notice to the responsible parent at any time after entry of ((an order by the court)) a support order, 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, date of birth, telephone number, driver's license number, and name and address of the employer of the responsible parent;

             (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,)) A provision requiring the responsible parent to keep the Washington state support registry informed of 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))

             (6) The physical custodian's address:

             (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)) division of child support.

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.

                                                                                     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.

             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.

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.

             Sec. 898. RCW 26.23.060 and 1994 c 230 s 10 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) The ((office of support enforcement)) division of child support 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)) a notice clearly stating that child support may be collected by withholding from earnings, wages, or benefits without further notice to the obligated parent; 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)) division of child support 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)):

             (a) In the manner prescribed for the service of a summons in a civil action;

             (b) By certified mail, return receipt requested; or

             (c) By electronic means if there is an agreement between the secretary and the person, firm, corporation, association, political subdivision, department of the state, or agency, subdivision, or instrumentality of the United States to accept service by electronic means.

             (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

             (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)) division of child support 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)) division of child support, 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.

             (11) The division of child support may use uniform interstate withholding forms adopted by the United States department of health and human services to take withholding actions under this section when the responsible parent is receiving earnings or unemployment compensation in another state.


IX. CHILD SUPPORT ENFORCEMENT


             Sec. 901. RCW 74.20.040 and 1989 c 360 s 12 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) Whenever the department ((of social and health services)) receives an application for public assistance on behalf of a child, the department shall take appropriate action under the provisions of this chapter, chapter 74.20A RCW, or other appropriate statutes of this state to establish or enforce support obligations against the parent or other persons owing a duty to pay support moneys.

             (2) The secretary may accept a request for support enforcement services on behalf of persons who are not recipients of public assistance and may take appropriate action to establish or enforce support obligations against the parent or other persons owing a duty to pay moneys. Requests accepted under this subsection may be conditioned upon the payment of a fee as required through regulation issued by the secretary. ((Action may be taken under the provisions of chapter 74.20 RCW, the abandonment or nonsupport statutes, or other appropriate statutes of this state, including but not limited to remedies established in chapter 74.20A RCW, to establish and enforce said support obligations.)) The secretary may establish by regulation, reasonable standards and qualifications for support enforcement services under this subsection.

             (3) The secretary may accept requests for support enforcement services from child support enforcement agencies in other states operating child support programs under Title IV-D of the social security act or from foreign countries, and may take appropriate action to establish and enforce support obligations, or to enforce subpoenas, information requests, orders for genetic testing, and collection actions issued by the other agency against the parent or other person owing a duty to pay support moneys, the parent or other person's employer, or any other person or entity properly subject to child support collection or information-gathering processes. The request shall contain and be accompanied by such information and documentation as the secretary may by rule require, and be signed by an authorized representative of the agency. The secretary may adopt rules setting forth the duration and nature of services provided under this subsection.

             (4) The department may take action to establish, enforce, and collect a support obligation, including performing related services, under this chapter and chapter 74.20A RCW, or through the attorney general or prosecuting attorney for action under chapter 26.09, 26.18, 26.20, 26.21, or 26.26 RCW or other appropriate statutes or the common law of this state.

             (5) Whenever a support order is filed with the Washington state support registry under chapter 26.23 RCW, the department may take appropriate action under the provisions of this chapter, chapter 26.23 or 74.20A RCW, or other appropriate law of this state to establish or enforce the support obligations contained in that order against the responsible parent or other persons owing a duty to pay support moneys.

             (6) The secretary may charge and collect a fee from the person obligated to pay support to compensate the department for services rendered in establishment of or enforcement of support obligations. This fee shall be limited to not more than ten percent of any support money collected as a result of action taken by the secretary. The fee charged shall be in addition to the support obligation. In no event may any moneys collected by the department ((of social and health services)) from the person obligated to pay support be retained as satisfaction of fees charged until all current support obligations have been satisfied. The secretary shall by regulation establish reasonable fees for support enforcement services and said schedule of fees shall be made available to any person obligated to pay support. The secretary may, on showing of necessity, waive or defer any such fee.

             (7) Fees, due and owing, may be collected as delinquent support moneys utilizing any of the remedies in chapter 74.20 RCW, chapter 74.20A RCW, chapter 26.21 RCW, or any other remedy at law or equity available to the department or any agencies with whom it has a cooperative or contractual arrangement to establish, enforce, or collect support moneys or support obligations.

             (8) The secretary may waive the fee, or any portion thereof, as a part of a compromise of disputed claims or may grant partial or total charge off of said fee if the secretary finds there are no available, practical, or lawful means by which said fee may be collected or to facilitate payment of the amount of delinquent support moneys owed.

             (9) The secretary shall adopt rules conforming to federal laws, rules, and regulations required to be observed in maintaining the state child support enforcement program required under Title IV-D of the federal social security act. The adoption of these rules shall be calculated to promote the cost-effective use of the agency's resources and not otherwise cause the agency to divert its resources from its essential functions.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 902. A new section is added to chapter 74.20A RCW to read as follows:

             CHILD SUPPORT PAYMENTS IN THE POSSESSION OF THIRD PARTIES--COLLECTION AS CHILD SUPPORT. (1) If a person or entity not entitled to child support payments wrongfully or negligently retains child support payments owed to another or to the Washington state support registry, those payments retain their character as child support payments and may be collected by the division of child support using any remedy available to the division of child support under Washington law for the collection of child support.

             (2) Child support moneys subject to collection under this section may be collected for the duration of the statute of limitations as it applies to the support order governing the support obligations, and any legislative or judicial extensions thereto.

             Sec. 945. RCW 74.20.320 and 1979 ex.s. c 171 s 17 are each amended to read as follows:

             Whenever a custodian of children, or other person, receives support moneys paid to them which moneys are paid in whole or in part in satisfaction of a support obligation which has been assigned to the department pursuant to ((42 U.S.C. Sec. 602(A)(26)(a))) Title IV-A of the federal social security act as amended by the personal responsibility and work opportunity reconciliation act of 1996 or RCW 74.20.330 or to which the department is owed a debt pursuant to RCW 74.20A.030, the moneys shall be remitted to the department within eight days of receipt by the custodian or other person. If not so remitted the custodian or other person shall be indebted to the department as a support debt in an amount equal to the amount of the support money received and not remitted.

             By not paying over the moneys to the department, a custodial parent or other person is deemed, without the necessity of signing any document, to have made an irrevocable assignment to the department of any support delinquency owed which is not already assigned to the department or to any support delinquency which may accrue in the future in an amount equal to the amount of support money retained. The department may utilize the collection procedures in chapter 74.20A RCW to collect the assigned delinquency to effect recoupment and satisfaction of the debt incurred by reason of the failure of the custodial parent or other person to remit. The department is also authorized to make a set-off to effect satisfaction of the debt by deduction from support moneys in its possession or in the possession of any clerk of the court or other forwarding agent which are paid to the custodial parent or other person for the satisfaction of any support delinquency. Nothing in this section authorizes the department to make set-off as to current support paid during the month for which the payment is due and owing.


             Sec. 946. RCW 74.20.330 and 1989 c 360 s 13 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) Whenever public assistance is paid under ((this title)) a state program funded under Title IV-A of the federal social security act as amended by the personal responsibility and work opportunity reconciliation act of 1996, each applicant or recipient is deemed to have made assignment to the department of any rights to a support obligation from any other person the applicant or recipient may have in his or her own behalf or in behalf of any other family member for whom the applicant or recipient is applying for or receiving public assistance, including any unpaid support obligation or support debt which has accrued at the time the assignment is made.

             (2) Payment of public assistance under ((this title)) a state program funded under Title IV-A of the federal social security act as amended by the personal responsibility and work opportunity reconciliation act of 1996 shall:

             (a) Operate as an assignment by operation of law; and

             (b) Constitute an authorization to the department to provide the assistance recipient with support enforcement services.


             Sec. 947. RCW 70.58.080 and 1989 c 55 s 2 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) Within ten days after the birth of any child, the attending physician, midwife, or his or her agent shall:

             (a) Fill out a certificate of birth, giving all of the particulars required, including: (i) The mother's name and date of birth, and (ii) if the mother and father are married at the time of birth or the father has signed an acknowledgment of paternity, the father's name and date of birth; and

             (b) File the certificate of birth together with the mother's and father's social security numbers with the ((local)) state registrar of ((the district in which the birth occurred)) vital statistics.

             (2) The local registrar shall forward the birth certificate, any signed affidavit acknowledging paternity, and the mother's and father's social security numbers to the state office of vital statistics pursuant to RCW 70.58.030.

             (3) The state ((office)) registrar of vital statistics shall make available to the ((office of support enforcement)) division of child support the birth certificates, the mother's and father's social security numbers and paternity affidavits.

             (4) Upon the birth of a child to an unmarried woman, the attending physician, midwife, or his or her agent shall:

             (a) Provide an opportunity for the child's mother and natural father to complete an affidavit acknowledging paternity. The completed affidavit shall be filed with the ((local)) state registrar of vital statistics. The affidavit shall contain or have attached:

             (i) A sworn statement by the mother consenting to the assertion of paternity and stating that this is the only possible father;

             (ii) A statement by the father that he is the natural father of the child;

             (iii) A sworn statement signed by the mother and the putative father that each has been given notice, both orally and in writing, of the alternatives to, the legal consequences of, and the rights, including, if one parent is a minor, any rights afforded due to minority status, and responsibilities that arise from, signing the affidavit acknowledging paternity;

             (iv) Written information, furnished by the department of social and health services, explaining the implications of signing, including parental rights and responsibilities; and

             (((iv))) (v) The social security numbers of both parents.

             (b) Provide written information and oral information, furnished by the department of social and health services, to the mother and the father regarding the benefits of having ((her)) the child's paternity established and of the availability of paternity establishment services, including a request for support enforcement services. The oral and written information shall also include information regarding the alternatives to, the legal consequences of, and the rights, including, if one parent is a minor any rights afforded due to minority status, and responsibilities that arise from, signing the affidavit acknowledging paternity.

             (5) The physician or midwife or his or her agent is entitled to reimbursement for reasonable costs, which the department shall establish by rule, when an affidavit acknowledging paternity is filed with the state ((office)) registrar of vital statistics.

             (6) If there is no attending physician or midwife, the father or mother of the child, householder or owner of the premises, manager or superintendent of the public or private institution in which the birth occurred, shall notify the local registrar, within ten days after the birth, of the fact of the birth, and the local registrar shall secure the necessary information and signature to make a proper certificate of birth.

             (7) When an infant is found for whom no certificate of birth is known to be on file, a birth certificate shall be filed within the time and in the form prescribed by the state board of health.

             (8) When no putative father is named on a birth certificate of a child born to an unwed mother the mother may give any surname she so desires to her child but shall designate in space provided for father's name on the birth certificate "None Named".


             Sec. 948. RCW 26.26.040 and 1994 c 230 s 14 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) A man is presumed to be the natural father of a child for all intents and purposes if:

             (a) He and the child's natural mother are or have been married to each other and the child is born during the marriage, or within three hundred days after the marriage is terminated by death, annulment, declaration of invalidity, divorce, or dissolution, or after a decree of separation is entered by a court; or

             (b) Before the child's birth, he and the child's natural mother have attempted to marry each other by a marriage solemnized in apparent compliance with law, although the attempted marriage is or could be declared invalid, and the child is born within three hundred days after the termination of cohabitation;

             (c) After the child's birth, he and the child's natural mother have married, or attempted to marry, each other by a marriage solemnized in apparent compliance with law, although the attempted marriage is or could be declared invalid, and

             (i) He has acknowledged his paternity of the child in writing filed with the state registrar of vital statistics,

             (ii) With his consent, he is named as the child's father on the child's birth certificate, or

             (iii) He is obligated to support the child under a written voluntary promise or by court order;

             (d) While the child is under the age of majority, he receives the child into his home and openly holds out the child as his child;

             (e) He acknowledges his paternity of the child pursuant to RCW 70.58.080 or in a writing filed with the state ((office)) registrar of vital statistics, which shall promptly inform the mother of the filing of the acknowledgment, if she does not dispute the acknowledgment within a reasonable time after being informed thereof, in a writing filed with the state registrar of vital statistics. An acknowledgment of paternity under RCW 70.58.080 shall be a legal finding of paternity of the child sixty days after the acknowledgment is filed with the center for health statistics unless the acknowledgment is sooner rescinded or challenged. After the sixty-day period has passed, the acknowledgment may be challenged in court only on the basis of fraud, duress, or material mistake of fact, with the burden of proof upon the challenger. Legal responsibilities of the challenger, including child support obligations, may not be suspended during the challenge, except for good cause shown. Judicial and administrative proceedings are neither required nor permitted to ratify an unchallenged acknowledgment of paternity filed after the effective date of this section. In order to enforce rights of residential time, custody, and visitation, a man presumed to be the father as a result of filing a written acknowledgment must seek appropriate judicial orders under this title;

             (f) The United States immigration and naturalization service made or accepted a determination that he was the father of the child at the time of the child's entry into the United States and he had the opportunity at the time of the child's entry into the United States to admit or deny the paternal relationship; or

             (g) Genetic testing indicates a ninety-eight percent or greater probability of paternity.

             (2) A presumption under this section may be rebutted in an appropriate action only by clear, cogent, and convincing evidence. If two or more presumptions arise which conflict with each other, the presumption which on the facts is founded on the weightier considerations of policy and logic controls. The presumption is rebutted by a court decree establishing paternity of the child by another man.


             NEW SECTION. Sec. 949. A new section is added to chapter 26.26 RCW to read as follows:

             PROOF OF CERTAIN SUPPORT AND PATERNITY ESTABLISHMENT COSTS. In all actions brought under this chapter, bills for pregnancy, childbirth, and genetic testing shall:

             (1) Be admissible as evidence without requiring third-party foundation testimony; and

             (2) Constitute prima facie evidence of amounts incurred for such services or for testing on behalf of the child.


             Sec. 950. RCW 74.20A.055 and 1996 c 21 s 1 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) The secretary may, in the absence of a superior court order, or pursuant to an establishment of paternity under chapter 26.26 RCW, serve on the responsible parent or parents a notice and finding of financial responsibility requiring a responsible parent or parents to appear and show cause in an adjudicative proceeding why the finding of responsibility and/or the amount thereof is incorrect, should not be finally ordered, but should be rescinded or modified. This notice and finding shall relate to the support debt accrued and/or accruing under this chapter and/or RCW 26.16.205, including periodic payments to be made in the future. The hearing shall be held pursuant to this section, chapter 34.05 RCW, the Administrative Procedure Act, and the rules of the department.

             (2) The notice and finding of financial responsibility shall be served in the same manner prescribed for the service of a summons in a civil action or may be served on the responsible parent by certified mail, return receipt requested. The receipt shall be prima facie evidence of service. The notice shall be served upon the debtor within sixty days from the date the state assumes responsibility for the support of the dependent child or children on whose behalf support is sought. If the notice is not served within sixty days from such date, the department shall lose the right to reimbursement of payments made after the sixty-day period and before the date of notification: PROVIDED, That if the department exercises reasonable efforts to locate the debtor and is unable to do so the entire sixty-day period is tolled until such time as the debtor can be located.

             (3) The notice and finding of financial responsibility shall set forth the amount the department has determined the responsible parent owes, the support debt accrued and/or accruing, and periodic payments to be made in the future. The notice and finding shall also include:

             (a) A statement of the name of the recipient or custodian and the name of the child or children for whom support is sought;

             (b) A statement of the amount of periodic future support payments as to which financial responsibility is alleged;

             (c) A statement that the responsible parent may object to all or any part of the notice and finding, and file an application for an adjudicative proceeding to show cause why said responsible parent should not be determined to be liable for any or all of the debt, past and future;

             (d) ((A statement that the alleged responsible parent may challenge the presumption of paternity;

             (e))) A statement that, if the responsible parent fails in timely fashion to file an application for an adjudicative proceeding, the support debt and payments stated in the notice and finding, including periodic support payments in the future, shall be assessed and determined and ordered by the department and that this debt and amounts due under the notice shall be subject to collection action;

             (((f))) (e) A statement that the property of the debtor, without further advance notice or hearing, will be subject to lien and foreclosure, distraint, seizure and sale, order to withhold and deliver, notice of payroll deduction or other collection action to satisfy the debt and enforce the support obligation established under the notice.

             (4) A responsible parent who objects to the notice and finding of financial responsibility may file an application for an adjudicative proceeding within twenty days of the date of service of the notice or thereafter as provided under this subsection. An adjudicative proceeding shall be held in the county of residence or other place convenient to the responsible parent.

             (a) If the responsible parent files the application within twenty days, the department shall schedule an adjudicative proceeding to hear the parent's objection and determine the parents' support obligation for the entire period covered by the notice and finding of financial responsibility. The filing of the application stays collection action pending the entry of a final administrative order;

             (b) If the responsible parent fails to file an application within twenty days, the notice and finding shall become a final administrative order. The amounts for current and future support and the support debt stated in the notice are final and subject to collection, except as provided under (c) and (d) of this subsection;

             (c) If the responsible parent files the application more than twenty days after, but within one year of the date of service, the department shall schedule an adjudicative proceeding to hear the parents' objection and determine the parent's support obligation for the entire period covered by the notice and finding of financial responsibility. The filing of the application does not stay further collection action, pending the entry of a final administrative order, and does not affect any prior collection action;

             (d) If the responsible parent files the application more than one year after the date of service, the department shall schedule an adjudicative proceeding at which the responsible parent must show good cause for failure to file a timely application. The filing of the application does not stay future collection action and does not affect prior collection action:

             (i) If the presiding officer finds that good cause exists, the presiding officer shall proceed to hear the parent's objection to the notice and determine the parent's support obligation;

             (ii) If the presiding officer finds that good cause does not exist, the presiding officer shall treat the application as a petition for prospective modification of the amount for current and future support established under the notice and finding. In the modification proceeding, the presiding officer shall set current and future support under chapter 26.19 RCW. The responsible parent need show neither good cause nor a substantial change of circumstances to justify modification of current and future support;

             (e) The department shall retain and/or shall not refund support money collected more than twenty days after the date of service of the notice. Money withheld as the result of collection action shall be delivered to the department. The department shall distribute such money, as provided in published rules.

             (5)(((a))) If an application for an adjudicative proceeding is filed, the presiding or reviewing officer shall determine the past liability and responsibility, if any, of the alleged responsible parent and shall also determine the amount of periodic payments to be made in the future, which amount is not limited by the amount of any public assistance payment made to or for the benefit of the child. If deviating from the child support schedule in making these determinations, the presiding or reviewing officer shall apply the standards contained in the child support schedule and enter written findings of fact supporting the deviation.

             (((b) If a responsible parent provides credible evidence at an adjudicative proceeding that would rebut the presumption of paternity set forth in RCW 26.26.040, the presiding officer shall direct the department to refer the issue for scheduling of an appropriate hearing in superior court to determine whether the presumption should be rebutted.))

             (6) If the responsible parent fails to attend or participate in the hearing or other stage of an adjudicative proceeding, upon a showing of valid service, the presiding officer shall enter an administrative order declaring the support debt and payment provisions stated in the notice and finding of financial responsibility to be assessed and determined and subject to collection action.

             (7) The final administrative order establishing liability and/or future periodic support payments shall be superseded upon entry of a superior court order for support to the extent the superior court order is inconsistent with the administrative order.

             (8) Debts determined pursuant to this section, accrued and not paid, are subject to collection action under this chapter without further necessity of action by a presiding or reviewing officer.


             Sec. 951. RCW 74.20A.056 and 1994 c 230 s 19 and 1994 c 146 s 5 are each reenacted and amended to read as follows:

             (1) If an alleged father has signed an affidavit acknowledging paternity which has been filed with the state ((office)) registrar of vital statistics before July 1, 1997, the ((office of support enforcement)) division of child support may serve a notice and finding of parental responsibility on him. Procedures for and responsibility resulting from acknowledgments filed after July 1, 1997, are in subsections (8) and (9) of this section. Service of the notice shall be in the same manner as a summons in a civil action or by certified mail, return receipt requested. The notice shall have attached to it a copy of the affidavit or certification of birth record information advising of the existence of a filed affidavit, provided by the ((center for health)) state registrar of vital statistics, and shall state that:

             (a) The alleged father may file an application for an adjudicative proceeding at which he will be required to appear and show cause why the amount stated in the finding of financial responsibility as to support is incorrect and should not be ordered;

             (b) An alleged father may request that a blood or genetic test be administered to determine whether such test would exclude him from being a natural parent and, if not excluded, may subsequently request that the ((office of support enforcement)) division of child support initiate an action in superior court to determine the existence of the parent-child relationship; and

             (c) If the alleged father does not request that a blood or genetic test be administered or file an application for an adjudicative proceeding, the amount of support stated in the notice and finding of parental responsibility shall become final, subject only to a subsequent determination under RCW 26.26.060 that the parent-child relationship does not exist.

If a request for testing is made, the department shall arrange for the test and, pursuant to rules adopted by the department, may advance the cost of such testing. The department shall mail a copy of the test results by certified mail, return receipt requested, to the alleged father's last known address.

             (5) If the test excludes the alleged father from being a natural parent, the ((office of support enforcement)) division of child support shall file a copy of the results with the state ((office)) registrar of vital statistics and shall dismiss any pending administrative collection proceedings based upon the affidavit in issue. The state ((office)) registrar of vital statistics shall remove the alleged father's name from the birth certificate and change the child's surname to be the same as the mother's maiden name as stated on the birth certificate, or any other name which the mother may select.

             (6) The alleged father may, within twenty days after the date of receipt of the test results, request the ((office of support enforcement)) division of child support to initiate an action under RCW 26.26.060 to determine the existence of the parent-child relationship. If the ((office of support enforcement)) division of child support initiates a superior court action at the request of the alleged father and the decision of the court is that the alleged father is a natural parent, the alleged father shall be liable for court costs incurred.

             (7) If the alleged father does not request the ((office of support enforcement)) division of child support to initiate a superior court action, or if the alleged father fails to appear and cooperate with blood or genetic testing, the notice of parental responsibility shall become final for all intents and purposes and may be overturned only by a subsequent superior court order entered under RCW 26.26.060.

             (8)(a) If an alleged father has signed an affidavit acknowledging paternity that has been filed with the state registrar of vital statistics after July 1, 1997, within sixty days from the date of filing of the acknowledgment:

             (i) The division of child support may serve a notice and finding of parental responsibility on him as set forth under this section; and

             (b) If the alleged father does not file an application for an adjudicative proceeding or rescind his acknowledgment of paternity, the amount of support stated in the notice and finding of parental responsibility becomes final, subject only to a subsequent determination under RCW 26.26.060 that the parent-child relationship does not exist.

             (c) An alleged father who objects to the amount of support requested in the notice may file an application for an adjudicative proceeding up to twenty days after the date the notice was served. An application for an adjudicative proceeding may be filed within one year of service of the notice and finding of parental responsibility without the necessity for a showing of good cause or upon a showing of good cause thereafter. An adjudicative proceeding under this section shall be pursuant to RCW 74.20A.055.

             (10) The department and the department of health may adopt rules to implement the requirements under this section.

             Sec. 956. RCW 26.26.100 and 1994 c 230 s 15 and 1994 c 146 s 1 are each reenacted and amended to read as follows:

             (1) The court may, and upon request of a party shall, require the child, mother, and any alleged or presumed father who has been made a party to submit to blood tests or genetic tests of blood, tissues, or other bodily fluids. If ((an alleged father)) a party objects to a proposed order requiring ((him to submit to paternity)) blood or genetic tests, the court ((may)) shall require the party making the allegation of possible paternity to provide sworn testimony, by affidavit or otherwise, stating the facts upon which the allegation is based. The court shall order blood or genetic tests if it appears that a reasonable possibility exists that the requisite sexual contact occurred or where nonpaternity is alleged, that the requisite sexual contact did not occur. The tests shall be performed by an expert in paternity blood or genetic testing appointed by the court. The expert's verified report identifying the blood or genetic characteristics observed is admissible in evidence in any hearing or trial in the parentage action, if (a) the alleged or presumed father has had the opportunity to gain information about the security, validity, and interpretation of the tests and the qualifications of any experts, and (b) the report is accompanied by an affidavit from the expert which describes the expert's qualifications as an expert and analyzes and interprets the results. Verified documentation of the chain of custody of the blood or genetic samples tested is admissible to establish the chain of custody. The court may consider published sources as aids to interpretation of the test results.

             (2)(a) Any objection to genetic testing results must be made in writing and served upon the opposing party, within twenty days before any hearing at which such results may be introduced into evidence.

             (b) If an objection is not made as provided in this subsection, the test results are admissible as evidence of paternity without the need for foundation testimony or other proof of authenticity or accuracy.

             (3) The court, upon request by a party, shall order that additional blood or genetic tests be performed by the same or other experts qualified in paternity blood or genetic testing, if the party requesting additional tests advances the full costs of the additional testing within a reasonable time. The court may order additional testing without requiring that the requesting party advance the costs only if another party agrees to advance the costs or if the court finds, after hearing, that (a) the requesting party is indigent, and (b) the laboratory performing the initial tests recommends additional testing or there is substantial evidence to support a finding as to paternity contrary to the initial blood or genetic test results. The court may later order any other party to reimburse the party who advanced the costs of additional testing for all or a portion of the costs.

             (4) In all cases, the court shall determine the number and qualifications of the experts.


             Sec. 957. RCW 26.26.130 and 1995 c 246 s 31 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) The judgment and order of the court determining the existence or nonexistence of the parent and child relationship shall be determinative for all purposes.

             (2) If the judgment and order of the court is at variance with the child's birth certificate, the court shall order that an amended birth certificate be issued.

             (3) The judgment and order shall contain other appropriate provisions directed to the appropriate parties to the proceeding, concerning the duty of current and future support, the extent of any liability for past support furnished to the child if that issue is before the court, the furnishing of bond or other security for the payment of the judgment, or any other matter in the best interest of the child. The judgment and order may direct the father to pay the reasonable expenses of the mother's pregnancy and confinement. The judgment and order may include a continuing restraining order or injunction. In issuing the order, the court shall consider the provisions of RCW 9.41.800.

             (4) The judgment and order shall contain the social security numbers of all parties to the order.

             (5) Support judgment and orders shall be for periodic payments which may vary in amount. The court may limit the father's liability for the past support to the child to the proportion of the expenses already incurred as the court deems just. The court shall not limit or affect in any manner the right of nonparties including the state of Washington to seek reimbursement for support and other services previously furnished to the child.

             (((5))) (6) After considering all relevant factors, the court shall order either or both parents to pay an amount determined pursuant to the schedule and standards contained in chapter 26.19 RCW.

             (((6))) (7) On the same basis as provided in chapter 26.09 RCW, the court shall make residential provisions with regard to minor children of the parties, except that a parenting plan shall not be required unless requested by a party.

             (((7))) (8) In any dispute between the natural parents of a child and a person or persons who have (a) commenced adoption proceedings or who have been granted an order of adoption, and (b) pursuant to a court order, or placement by the department of social and health services or by a licensed agency, have had actual custody of the child for a period of one year or more before court action is commenced by the natural parent or parents, the court shall consider the best welfare and interests of the child, including the child's need for situation stability, in determining the matter of custody, and the parent or person who is more fit shall have the superior right to custody.

             (((8))) (9) In entering an order under this chapter, the court may issue any necessary continuing restraining orders, including the restraint provisions of domestic violence protection orders under chapter 26.50 RCW or antiharassment protection orders under chapter 10.14 RCW.

             (((9))) (10) Restraining orders issued under this section restraining the person from molesting or disturbing another party or from going onto the grounds of or entering the home, workplace, or school of the other party or the day care or school of any child shall prominently bear on the front page of the order the legend: VIOLATION OF THIS ORDER WITH ACTUAL NOTICE OF ITS TERMS IS A CRIMINAL OFFENSE UNDER CHAPTER 26.26 RCW AND WILL SUBJECT A VIOLATOR TO ARREST.

             (((10))) (11) The court shall order that any restraining order bearing a criminal offense legend, any domestic violence protection order, or any antiharassment protection order granted under this section be forwarded by the clerk of the court on or before the next judicial day to the appropriate law enforcement agency specified in the order. Upon receipt of the order, the law enforcement agency shall forthwith enter the order into any computer-based criminal intelligence information system available in this state used by law enforcement agencies to list outstanding warrants. The order is fully enforceable in any county in the state.


             Sec. 958. RCW 70.58.055 and 1991 c 96 s 1 are each amended to read as follows:

             (1) To promote and maintain nation-wide uniformity in the system of vital statistics, the certificates required by this chapter or by the rules adopted under this chapter shall include, as a minimum, the items recommended by the federal agency responsible for national vital statistics including social security numbers.

             (2) The state board of health by rule may require additional pertinent information relative to the birth and manner of delivery as it may deem necessary for statistical study. This information shall be placed in a confidential section of the birth certificate form and shall not be subject to the view of the public or for certification purposes except upon order of the court. The state board of health may eliminate from the forms items that it determines are not necessary for statistical study.

             (3) Each certificate or other document required by this chapter shall be on a form or in a format prescribed by the state registrar.

             (4) All vital records shall contain the data required for registration. No certificate may be held to be complete and correct that does not supply all items of information called for or that does not satisfactorily account for the omission of required items.

             (5) Information required in certificates or documents authorized by this chapter may be filed and registered by photographic, electronic, or other means as prescribed by the state registrar.
