PERMANENT RULES

DEPARTMENT OF

LABOR AND INDUSTRIES

[ Filed May 30, 2003, 11:50 a.m. ]

Date of Adoption: May 30, 2003.

Purpose: Fees and other related changes for elevator (chapter 296-96 WAC), factory assembled structures (chapters 296-150C, 296-150P, 296-150R, 296-150T, and 296-150V WAC), and plumber certification (chapter 296-400A WAC).

The department has adopted a 3.29% (rounded down to the nearest tenth of a dollar) general increase in fees for the factory assembled structures (excluding manufactured/mobile home and factory-built housing fees) and plumber certification programs. The 3.29% rate is the Office of Financial Management's maximum allowable fiscal growth rate factor for fiscal year 2003. The general fee increases are necessary to help offset inflation and maintain the financial health and operational effectiveness of the programs.

In addition, a few changes were made to the elevator inspection fees. The department has the authority to set these fees in excess of the fiscal growth factor in response to the passage of the 2001 operating budget (chapter 7, Laws of 2001 - ESSB 6153) to ensure the fees fully fund the cost of the elevator program. Section 217(3) of ESSB 6153 authorized these fee changes:

"It is the intent of the legislature that elevator inspection fees shall fully cover the cost of the elevator inspection program. Pursuant to RCW 43.135.055, during the 2001-03 fiscal biennium the department may increase fees in excess of the fiscal growth factor, if the increases are necessary to fully fund the cost of the elevator inspection program."

Lastly, the plumber certification fee schedule was restructured to combine all the fees into one location for purposes of clarity.
