Hearing Location(s): Washington State Department of Health, 310 Israel Road S.E., First Floor, Rooms 152/153, Tumwater, WA 98501, on April 27, 2005, at 1:30 p.m.

Date of Intended Adoption: May 6, 2005.

Submit Written Comments to: Todd Erik Henry, Washington State Department of Health, 310 Israel Road S.E., Tumwater, WA 98501, P.O. Box 47860, Olympia, WA 98504-7860, e-mail http://www3.doh.wa.gov/policyreview, fax (360) 236-4626, by April 27, 2005.

Assistance for Persons with Disabilities: Contact Todd Erik Henry by April 13, 2005, TTY (800) 833-6388 or (360) 236-4984.

Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: Currently, the Washington Administrative Code (WAC) for each health profession establishes a specific fee amount the secretary must charge for a health profession license, credential or registration renewal. If the health profession revenue balance for a specific profession has a surplus, a WAC amendment is needed to reduce the renewal fee amount.

Under this rule proposal, if the secretary determines that a particular health profession revenue balance exceeds the funds needed to support that program's regulatory operations, then the secretary may reduce a health profession license, credential or registration fee below the renewal fee amount ceiling specified in WAC.

One WAC is being amended to change its WAC title.

This proposal also repeals WACs for six professions regarding their renewal cycle. The six WACs being repealed were initially implemented for the transition from calendar year to date of birth fee renewal cycles. These WACs are no longer applicable.

Reasons Supporting Proposal: The department seeks to establish health profession licensing fees that cover operating expenses and operating reserve. The proposed WAC amendments may result in reduced fees for some licensed, certified or registered professions.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 43.70.250 and [43.70.]280.

Statute Being Implemented: RCW 43.70.110.

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

Name of Proponent: Department of Health, governmental.

Name of Agency Personnel Responsible for Drafting, Implementation and Enforcement: Todd Erik Henry, Tumwater, Washington, (360) 236-4984.

No small business economic impact statement has been prepared under chapter 19.85 RCW. A small business economic impact statement is not required because RCW 19.85.025(3) exempts fee rules, repeal of a rule or clarifying language of a rule without changing its effect. Proposed rule amendments maintain health profession license, certification and registration renewal fees at their current levels or reduce them. No cost is imposed on small businesses. One rule amendment simply amends the title of a fee rule section. Six rules are being repealed.

A cost-benefit analysis is not required under RCW 34.05.328. The proposed rule changes are not legislatively significant under RCW 34.05.328. Proposed rule changes amend fee sections which are part of a process for applying for a department health profession license, certification or registration. Proposed rule changes do not impose a penalty to license, certification or registration holders or applicants. Proposed rule changes do not change standards for licensure, certification or registration. Proposed rule changes do not make significant changes to the regulatory process.
