Effective Date of Rule: September 1, 2010.
Purpose: The purpose is to amend the rule-making order, WSR 10-15-063, filed on July 15, 2010, adopting amendments to WAC 170-290-0082, to extend the effective date of the rule. The original adoption order identified the effective date of the rule as thirty-one days after filing, or August 15, 2010. This order extends the effective date of that rule to September 1, 2010. Extension of the effective date of the rule will allow the department of social and health services (DSHS) additional time needed by that department to implement the rule before the rule takes effect.
The department of early learning (DEL) will coordinate adoption of the rule with DSHS and with the federal Department of Health and Human Services as appropriate. Under chapter 265, Laws of 2006, DEL and DSHS jointly operate the WCCC program. DEL determines WCCC policy and adopts the program rules. DSHS implements the WCCC program, including accepting applications, determining family eligibility, and processing payments to child care providers.
