EMERGENCY RULES

DEPARTMENT OF

SOCIAL AND HEALTH SERVICES
(Aging and Disability Services Administration)

[ Filed November 28, 2007, 1:37 p.m. , effective November 28, 2007, 1:37 p.m. ]


Effective Date of Rule: Immediately.

Purpose: The department is creating WAC 388-828-9000, 388-828-9020, 388-828-9040, 388-828-9060, 388-828-9100, 388-828-9120 and 388-828-9140, to combine three family support programs into one individual and family services program as directed by the legislature.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Amending WAC 388-828-5360.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 71A.12.30 [71A.12.030].

Other Authority: 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: Chapter 283, Laws of 2007 (2SSB 5467) directs the department to create the individual and family services programs for persons with developmental disabilities by July 1, 2007. DDD must incorporate rules for the algorithm used to determine a personal award amount into chapter 388-828 WAC. DDD is also amending WAC 388-828-5360 to correct the backup caregiver availability table, which is part of the individual and family services algorithm.

An initial public notice was filed June 29, 2007, as WSR 07-15-081. Stakeholder work is being completed and the rules are expected to be formally proposed in February 2008.

This emergency rule will replace the emergency rule filed as WSR 07-22-016.

Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Comply with Federal Statute: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; Federal Rules or Standards: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; or Recently Enacted State Statutes: New 7, Amended 1, Repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted at Request of a Nongovernmental Entity: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.
