NOTICE

THIS RULE IS BEING PROPOSED UNDER AN EXPEDITED RULE-MAKING PROCESS THAT WILL ELIMINATE THE NEED FOR THE AGENCY TO HOLD PUBLIC HEARINGS, PREPARE A SMALL BUSINESS ECONOMIC IMPACT STATEMENT, OR PROVIDE RESPONSES TO THE CRITERIA FOR A SIGNIFICANT LEGISLATIVE RULE. IF YOU OBJECT TO THIS USE OF THE EXPEDITED RULE-MAKING PROCESS, YOU MUST EXPRESS YOUR OBJECTIONS IN WRITING AND THEY MUST BE SENT TO Rules Coordinator, Department of Social and Health Services, P.O. Box 45850, Olympia, WA 98504-5850, or deliver to Blake Office Park East, 4500 10th Avenue S.E., Lacey, WA 98503, e-mail DSHSRPAURulesCoordinator@dshs.wa.gov, fax (360) 664-6185 , AND RECEIVED BY 5:00 p.m. on May 5, 2008.


Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: Chapter 388-475 WAC incorporates language published in chapter 388-511 WAC for SSI-related eligibility requirements. The proposed repeal of this WAC section is appropriate because the language is duplicated in chapter 388-475 WAC. The repeal of this WAC section provides the opportunity to consolidate and improve the usability of rules concerning the financial eligibility requirements for SSI within chapter 388-475 WAC.

The rule's effect remains unchanged and the department is not required to draft a cost-benefit analysis for housekeeping rules that correct typographical errors or update cross-references.

Reasons Supporting Proposal: There will be less confusion for people because the WAC cross-references will be correct.

An agency may file notice for the expedited repeal of rules under the procedures set forth in RCW 34.05.353 for rules with this criteria: RCW 35.05.353 [34.05.353] (2)(d) -other rules of the agency or of another agency govern the same activity as the rule, making the rule redundant.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 74.08.090.

Statute Being Implemented: RCW 35.05.353 [34.05.353] (2)(d).

Rule is not necessitated by federal law, federal or state court decision.

Name of Proponent: Department of social and health services, health and recovery services administration (HRSA), governmental.

Name of Agency Personnel Responsible for Drafting: Jonell Blatt, ORP, 626 8th Avenue, Olympia, WA 98504, (360) 725-1571; Implementation and Enforcement: Cathy Fisher, EPACE, 626 8th Avenue, Olympia, WA 98504, (360) 725-1357.
