PERMANENT RULES

DEPARTMENT OF LICENSING


[ Filed July 23, 2007, 2:25 p.m. , effective September 1, 2007 ]


Effective Date of Rule: September 1, 2007.

Purpose: The purpose is to increase fees for the auctioneer, court reporter and sellers of travel programs. Increasing the fees will allow the programs to cover the cost of administering the program and to comply with RCW 43.24.086, which requires each professional, occupational, or business licensing program be fully borne by the members of that profession, occupation, or business. Fees are to be set for each program at a sufficient level to cover the costs of administering that program. In addition, pursuant to RCW 43.135.055, during the 2007-09 fiscal biennium, the department may increase fees in excess of the fiscal growth factor if the increases are necessary to fully fund the costs of the licensing programs.
