EXPEDITED REPEAL

DEPARTMENT OF

LABOR AND INDUSTRIES

[Filed June 13, 1997, 9:15 a.m.]

The Following Sections are Proposed for Expedited Repeal: Chapter 296-10 WAC, sections 010-220 and 370-590; chapter 296-129 WAC, sections 020-040; and chapter 296-126 WAC, section 140.

Rules Proposed for Expedited Repeal Meet the Following Criteria: Statute on which the rule was based has been repealed and has not been replaced by another statute providing statutory authority for the rule.

Any person who objects to the repeal of the rule must file a written objection to the repeal within thirty days after publication of this preproposal statement of inquiry.

Address Your Objection to: Greg Mowat, Program Manager, Employment Standards, P.O. Box 44510, Tumwater, WA 98504-4510, phone (360) 902-5310.

Reason the Expedited Repeal of the Rule is Appropriate: The Department of Labor and Industries is submitting rules for expedited repeal because their statutory authority RCW 43.22.280 was repealed by RCW 43.22.282 in 1982 making these rules obsolete. The practice and procedure issues are covered in chapter 296-08 WAC. The powers, duties, and the industrial welfare committee functions were transferred to the director of labor and industries. Therefore, the department is proposing repeal of chapter 296-10 WAC, Practice and procedure industrial welfare committee; chapter 296-129 WAC, Industrial welfare committee appeals; and chapter 296-126 WAC, Appeal procedures. Repealing these rules eliminates forty-nine sections and eight pages from Title 296 WAC.
