[ Filed March 15, 2006, 8:39 a.m. , effective April 15, 2006 ]


Effective Date of Rule: Thirty-one days after filing.

Purpose: Chapter 371-08 WAC was previously amended to conform to 2004 SSB 5590 and to make minor changes in the procedural rules of the pollution control hearings board (PCHB). The rule, as originally amended, failed to amend WAC 371-08-555. This rule governs appeal of PCHB decisions to superior court. An emergency rule was adopted (WSR 06-07-002) and is currently in effect making this change. This proposed rule will make the rules change permanent.
