PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY

DEPARTMENT OF LICENSING


[ Filed June 25, 2007, 1:33 p.m. ]

Subject of Possible Rule Making: Chapter 308-56A WAC, Certificates of title -- Motor vehicles, etc., to include but not limited to WAC 308-56A-030 Owner name and address -- Recorded on the vehicle record -- Registration -- Application for certificate of ownership associated with prevention of selling vehicle registrations to Washington residents who do not possess a valid Washington driver license.

Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 46.16.010.

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Rule change required for WAC 308-56A-030 to remove references to the requirement to present an unexpired driver's license when applying for title. RCW 46.16.010 requires presentation of an unexpired driver's license only for initial and renewal registration. WAC 308-96A-096 administers the requirements of the law.

Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.

Process for Developing New Rule: Negotiated rule making.

Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Dale R. Brown, Management Analyst, Policy and Projects Office, Mailstop 48205, P.O. Box 2956, Olympia, WA 98507-2957, or by phone (360) 902-4020, fax (360) 902-7821, TTY (360) 664-8885, e-mail DBROWN@dol.wa.gov.
