EXPEDITED REPEAL

DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH

[Filed June 30, 1997, 11:06 a.m.]

The Following Sections are Proposed for Expedited Repeal: WAC 246-841-710, 246-841-730, 246-841-740, and 246-841-750.

Rules Proposed for Expedited Repeal Meet the Following Criteria: Other rules of the agency or of another agency govern the same activity as the rule, making the rule redundant.

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: Jo Waidely, Program Manager, P.O. Box 47864, Olympia, WA 98504-7864.

Reason the Expedited Repeal of the Rule is Appropriate: WAC 246-841-710, nursing assistants fall under the Uniform Disciplinary Act (chapter 18.130 RCW) so rule is duplicative; WAC 246-841-730, rule is not enforceable because of no jurisdiction over courts; WAC 246-841-740, jurisdiction for agency reporting as referred in WAC resides within other agencies pursuant to statute; and WAC 246-841-750, the Uniform Disciplinary Act (chapter 18.130 RCW) provided for cooperation with an investigation and chapter 246-10 WAC already provides uniform procedural rules.
