[Order 98-25--Filed December 16, 1998, 2:32 p.m.]
The Following Sections are Proposed for Expedited Repeal: WAC 317-100-010 Authority, 317-100-020 Adoption by reference, 317-100-030 Purpose, 317-100-040 Additional definitions, 317-100-050 Designation of responsible official, 317-100-060 EIS preparation, 317-100-070 Coordination of combined state-federal action, 317-100-080 Policies and procedures for conditioning or denying permits or other approvals, and 317-100-090 Severability.
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: Jerry Thielen, Rules Coordinator, Department of Ecology, P.O. Box 47600, Olympia, WA 98504-7600.
Reason the Expedited Repeal of the Rule is Appropriate: Chapter 317-100 WAC was adopted by the Office of Marine Safety in compliance with the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA), chapter 43.21C RCW. The Office of Marine Safety was abolished and its laws, rules, functions and authorities were transferred to the Department of Ecology July 1, 1997. The Department of Ecology has its own SEPA rules making chapter 317-100 WAC unnecessary.
