Effective Date of Rule: April 1, 2007.

Purpose: The purpose of this of this amendment is to increase the federal poverty level effective April 1, 2007, to conform to the federal poverty level issued by the federal Office of Management and Budget.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Amending WAC 388-825-534.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 71A.12.030, 71A.12.040.

Other Authority: Section 205 (1)(e), chapter 518, Laws of 2005, Title 71A RCW.

Under RCW 34.05.350 the agency for good cause finds that immediate adoption, amendment, or repeal of a rule is necessary for the preservation of the public health, safety, or general welfare, and that observing the time requirements of notice and opportunity to comment upon adoption of a permanent rule would be contrary to the public interest.

Reasons for this Finding: Emergency rules are needed to implement the legislature's directive in section 205 (1)(e), chapter 518, Laws of 2005, to preserve and improve the welfare of families of persons with developmental disabilities by providing family support pilot program services. These services are linked to the federal poverty level as determined by the federal Office of Management and Budget.
