(Dental Hygiene)

[ Filed September 1, 2004, 8:26 a.m. ]

Original Notice.

Exempt from preproposal statement of inquiry under RCW 34.05.310(4).

Title of Rule and Other Identifying Information: WAC 246-815-990 Dental hygiene fees and renewal cycle.

Hearing Location(s): Department of Health, Point Plaza East, 310 Israel Road S.E., Room 139, Tumwater, WA 98501, on November 2, 2004, at 10:30 a.m.

Date of Intended Adoption: November 2, 2004.

Submit Written Comments to: Vicki Brown, P.O. Box 47867, Olympia, WA 98504-7867, e-mail vicki.brown@doh.wa.gov, fax (360) 236-4865, by October 26, 2004.

Assistance for Persons with Disabilities: Contact Vicki Brown by October 26, 2004, TTY (800) 833-6388 or (360) 236-4052.

Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: With the passage of legislation (ESSB 6554 Barriers to credentialing), this requires a change to WAC 246-815-990 to change "temporary" to "limited." As the limited license is renewable, the rule needs to be changed to allow the department to charge fees for the limited license and the renewed limited license. This bill reduces barriers to licensing, allowing more applicants to become licensed in Washington.

Reasons Supporting Proposal: This rule reduces barriers to licensing, allowing more dental hygiene applicants to become licensed in Washington state and to ensure the rules are consistent with the statute.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 43.70.250.

Statute Being Implemented: Chapter 18.29 RCW.

Rule is not necessitated by federal law, federal or state court decision.

Name of Proponent: Department of Health, Dental Hygiene Examining Committee, governmental.

Name of Agency Personnel Responsible for Drafting, Implementation and Enforcement: Vicki Brown, Program Manager, Department of Health, 310 Israel Road S.E., Tumwater, WA 98501, (360) 236-4865.

No small business economic impact statement has been prepared under chapter 19.85 RCW. A small business economic impact statement does not need to be prepared as it does not affect small businesses.

A cost-benefit analysis is not required under RCW 34.05.328. This proposal is exempt under RCW 34.05.328 (5)(b)(vi) because it sets fees according to legislative standards.
