PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
Subject of Possible Rule Making: The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission will conduct a review of the provisions of chapter 352-12 WAC, Moorage and use of marine and inland water facilities, including the provisions regulating the use of facilities, the methods for collection of fees and the issuance of permits.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 79A.05.030, 79A.05.055, and 79A.05.070.
