AMENDATORY SECTION(Amending Order 82-3, filed 1/26/82)
WAC 137-08-180 Records index. ((
(1) The department
finds that it would be unduly burdensome and would interfere
with agency operations to maintain an index of records because
of the complexity and diversity of its operations and the
resulting volume of manuals, correspondence, reports, surveys,
staff studies, and other materials.
(2) The department will make available for public disclosure all indices which may at a future time be developed for agency use.)) The record index may be accessed on the department's web site in the public disclosure section at: http://www.doc.wa.gov/PublicDisclosure/PublicDisclosure.htm.
