In accordance with RCW 34.05.335(1), the Department of Labor and Industries withdraws the following preproposal statement of inquiry:

Title of Rule: Vocational rehabilitation referrals.

WAC sections: 296-19A-050, 296-19A-065, 296-19A-090, 296-19A-110, and 296-19A-120.

Filed as: WSR 03-17-070 on August 19, 2003.

The purpose of this rule making was to investigate the potential for conflict of interest when vocational counselors make recommendations for additional vocational services after an ability to work assessment (AWA). The department reviewed the results of a study conducted in the year 2000 on vocational counselor recommendations and data on costs, duration and outcome. As a result of the review it was determined that there was no need to conduct rule making.
