Title of Rule and Other Identifying Information: Board of boiler rules -- Substantive (chapter 296-104 WAC).

Hearing Location(s): Department of Labor and Industries, 950 Broadway, Suite 200, Tacoma, WA, on November 8, 2006, at 10:00 a.m.

Date of Intended Adoption: November 21, 2006.

Submit Written Comments to: Sally Elliott, Department of Labor and Industries, P.O. Box 44400, Olympia, WA 98504-4400, e-mail yous235@lni.wa.gov, fax (360) 902-5292, by 5:00 p.m. on November 8, 2006.

Assistance for Persons with Disabilities: Contact Sally Elliott by October 15, 2006, yous235@lni.wa.gov or (360) 902-6411.

Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: The purpose of this rule making is to make clarification and technical changes to the Board of boiler rules -- Substantive (chapter 296-104 WAC) based on actions and requests of the board of boiler rules.

Reasons Supporting Proposal: See Purpose above.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 70.79.030, 70.79.040, 70.79.150, 70.79.290, 70.79.330, and 70.79.350.

Statute Being Implemented: Chapter 70.79 RCW.

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

Name of Proponent: Board of boiler rules, governmental.

Name of Agency Personnel Responsible for Drafting: Board of Boiler Rules, Tumwater, Washington, (360) 902-5270; Implementation and Enforcement: Linda Williamson, Tumwater, Washington, (360) 902-5270.

No small business economic impact statement has been prepared under chapter 19.85 RCW. The board of boiler rules has considered whether these proposed rules are subject to the Regulatory Fairness Act and has determined that they do not require a small business economic impact statement because the costs associated with the proposed rules will not place a more than minor impact on any business or contractor and/or they are exempted by law (see RCW 19.85.025 referencing RCW 34.05.310(4)) from the small business economic impact requirements.

A cost-benefit analysis is not required under RCW 34.05.328. A cost-benefit analysis was not prepared because the costs associated with the proposed changes are exempted by law since the proposed changes are updating the rule for clarification (see RCW 19.85.025 referencing RCW 34.05.310 (4)).
