Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: This rule is needed to increase the charge that candidates pay for the landscape architect registration examination (LARE) and the department collects on the vendor's behalf.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 18.96.080 Applications -- Contents -- Fees.

Statute Being Implemented: RCW 43.24.086 Fee policy for professions, occupations and businesses; requires fees to be at a sufficient level to defray the costs of administering the program.

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

Name of Proponent: Board of Registration for Landscape Architects, Department of Licensing, governmental.

Name of Agency Personnel Responsible for Drafting and Implementation: Joan Robinson, Olympia, Washington, (360) 664-1387; and Enforcement: Joseph Vincent Jr., Olympia, Washington, (360) 664-1386.

No small business economic impact statement has been prepared under chapter 19.85 RCW. This increase in charges is to individual applicants not business enterprises. The vendor will provide the tests only at these prices. The costs are not negotiable.

Without these increases in examination charges the refund account would be a deficit with the first examination session.

A cost-benefit analysis is not required under RCW 34.05.328. This section of regulations is not a "significant legislative rule" as defined by RCW 34.05.328 (5)(C)(iii) and is exempt under the provisions of RCW 34.05.328 (5)(b)(vi).
