PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
Subject of Possible Rule Making: Repealing duplicative rules relating to brief adjudicative proceedings.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: Chapter 18.170 RCW, Private security guard laws, chapter 18.165 RCW, Private investigator laws, and chapter 18.185 RCW, Bail bond agent laws.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Under chapter 18.235 RCW, Uniform Regulation of Business and Professions Act, chapter 308-08 WAC created and adopted rules for how all professional licensing programs will regulate the brief adjudicative proceedings. These new rules are duplicative or in conflict with the older rules found in each of the professional licensing regulations. This is the reason why the department of licensing is proposing to repeal certain rules. This will streamline and simplify using the adjudicative rules.
Process for Developing New Rule: Agency study.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Department of Licensing, Public Protection Services Section, Mary Haglund, P.O. Box 9649, Olympia, WA 98507, fax (360) 570-7888, e-mail Security@dol.wa.gov, phone (360) 664-6611.
