WSR 17-23-166
(Developmental Disabilities Administration)
[Filed November 21, 2017, 11:07 a.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: The department is planning to amend chapter 388-832 WAC, Individual and family services program, and other related rules as may be required.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 71A.12.030, 71A.12.120.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The developmental disabilities administration (DDA) is planning to amend these rules in order to clarify language, update policy, and correct references to the individual and family services (IFS) request list. As directed by the legislature under SSB 6387 (2014), DDA no longer requires clients to be added to the IFS request list.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.
Process for Developing New Rule: DSHS welcomes the public to take part in developing the rules. Anyone interested should contact the staff person identified below. At a later date, DSHS will file a proposal with the office of the code reviser with a notice of proposed rule making. A copy of the proposal will be sent to everyone on the mailing list and to anyone who requests a copy.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Chantelle Diaz, DDA, P.O. Box 45310, Olympia, WA 98504-5310, phone 360-407-1589, fax 360-407-0955, TTY 1-800-833-6388, email
