PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY

DEPARTMENT OF

LABOR AND INDUSTRIES

[ Filed January 22, 2008, 12:00 p.m. ]

Subject of Possible Rule Making: Chapter 296-150M WAC, Manufactured homes.

Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: Chapter 43.22 RCW.

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The purpose of this rule making is to amend the manufactured home rules to make sure they are consistent with the statute. The amendments will outline the information needed on the "notice of correction" as outlined in the statute and will continue to correct terminology for consistency between the statute and rules. The factory assembled structures program has already filed an expedited rule-making package to correct terminology in WAC 296-150M-0815, which amends "notice of infraction" to "notice of correction."

Additionally, the rule making will repeal sections of chapter 296-150M WAC that will be moved into the new mobile and manufactured home installation program, chapter 296-150L WAC.

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

Process for Developing New Rule: Interested parties and the public may also participate by providing written comments or giving oral testimony during the public hearing and comment process.

Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Sally Elliott, Department of Labor and Industries, Specialty Compliance Services Division, P.O.
