PUBLIC DISCLOSURE COMMISSION
[Filed June 26, 1997, 8:32 a.m.]
Currently, the Public Disclosure Commission only has one rule under
Topic: Adjusting for inflation the reporting thresholds and code values
used when completing the personal financial affairs statement (PDC Forms
F-1, F-1 Supplement and F-1A).
Status: In July, the commission will file a preproposal notice that it
is considering adjusting the F-1 reporting thresholds and code values in
order to reflect inflationary changes since these values were last
adjusted in 1985.
If the commission decides to move forward with these adjustments, it will
likely hold a public hearing (with possible permanent adoption) in late
October 1997. The amended financial affairs reporting forms would then
be used by filers beginning in 1998 (covering 1997 activity).
Statutory Authority for Rule Making: RCW 42.17.370 (1) and (11).
Statute Being Implemented: RCW 42.17.241(2).
WAC Cite: A new rule adjusting the thresholds would be adopted rather
than simply adopting amended forms (WAC 390-24-010 and 390-24-020) as has
been done in the past.
