[ Filed March 24, 1999, 11:43 a.m. ]

Subject of Possible Rule Making: New section title providing direct supervision. This new rule will be placed in new chapter 196-23 WAC.

Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 18.43.035.

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: This new section was taken out of WAC 196-24-095 Seals, and written as a separate rule in order to more clearly define "direct supervision" and to make it easier to find that definition in the rules.

Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.

Process for Developing New Rule: Agency study.

Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication. Persons may comment by mail, fax or phone to Rick Notestine, Program Director, P.O. Box 9649, Olympia, WA 98507-9649, fax (360) 664-2551, phone (360) 586-7298.
