PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
Subject of Possible Rule Making: The University of Washington's animal control policy, currently WAC 478-124-060 through 478-124-100.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28B.20.130.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The University of Washington's animal control policy is currently part of chapter 478-124 WAC, General conduct code for the University of Washington. The university proposes removing the policy from this chapter and creating a separate, new chapter specifically for animal control issues. Additionally, these rules would address animal control issues at all three UW campuses and field locations, and expand the rules to address new animal control issues that have arisen since the rules were adopted in 1973.
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. Written comments or inquiries may be directed to Rebecca Goodwin Deardorff, director of rules coordination, by one of the following routes: Mail University of Washington, Rules Coordination Office, Box 355509, Seattle, WA 98195-5509; e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org; or fax (206) 221-6917.
