PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY

DEPARTMENT OF LICENSING


[ Filed May 21, 2004, 8:46 a.m. ]

Subject of Possible Rule Making: Chapter 308-63 WAC Wreckers, to include but not limited to WAC 308-63-090 Wrecker -- Records and procedures for monthly report.

Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 46.01.110 and chapter 46.55 RCW.

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: A rule change is required to provide the vehicle wrecker industry, who request access, an option to utilize the department's destroyed vehicle reporting online system to submit their monthly wrecker reports that update the vehicle record immediately. Wrecker businesses that choose not to report online still have the option to submit a written and notarized monthly report to the department. This rule also seeks to clarify that the wrecker shall maintain the original evidence of ownership documentation with a copy of their electronically filed or written monthly report within their files for three years.

Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.

Process for Developing New Rule: Negotiated rule making.

Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting by mail Katherine Iyall Vasquez, Rules Manager, Title and Registration Services, Vehicle Services, Mailstop 48001, P.O. Box 2957, Olympia, WA 98507-2957, or by phone (360) 902-3718, fax (360) 664-0831, TTY (360) 664-8885, e-mail kvasquez@dol.wa.gov.
