PERMANENT RULES

DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH


(Midwifery)

[ Filed November 3, 2004, 9:05 a.m. , effective February 17, 2005 ]


Purpose: The department is increasing the midwifery licensing fees within the I-601 allowance to help defray program costs. It is the law of the state of Washington (RCW 43.70.250 and 43.70.280) that the cost of each professional license be fully borne by the members of that profession. By raising the midwifery licensing fee, the midwifery program will come closer to covering its program expenses.
