PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
The department is withdrawing the CR-101 for chapter 246-562 WAC, filed June 26, 2008, and published in WSR 08-14-077. The original intent was to amend the rules to meet federal requirements and to provide more flexibility with J1 physician visa waiver program requirements.
The department now intends to only make the changes necessary to meet federal requirements. These changes will be accomplished through the expedited rule-making process. For this reason, the CR-101 filed under WSR 08-14-077 is no longer needed.
Individuals requiring information on this rule should contact Kristina Sparks, Director, Department of Health, Community Health Systems, Rural Health Program, (360) 236-2800.
