PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY

DEPARTMENT OF LICENSING


[ Filed August 26, 2004, 8:43 a.m. ]

Subject of Possible Rule Making: Chapter 308-56A WAC, Certificate of title -- Motor vehicles, etc., to include but not limited to WAC 308-56A-505 Elimination of manufactured home certificate of ownership (title) -- Elimination.

Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 65.20.090.

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: In the last amendment to WAC 308-56A-505(5) existing reference to a $25.00 fee was deleted although the regulation continued to indicate that a fee would be charged for title elimination. The department seeks to clarify the statutory requirement for a fee amount to be set in rule.

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 Dale R.
