LABOR AND INDUSTRIES

[ Filed April 22, 2008, 10:19 a.m. ]

Original Notice.

Preproposal statement of inquiry was filed as WSR 07-03-154.

Title of Rule and Other Identifying Information: The department is proposing a fee increase for the following rules: Factory assembled structures (chapters 296-150C, 296-150F, 296-150M, 296-150T, and 296-150V WAC) and plumber certification (chapter 296-400A WAC).

Hearing Location(s): Department of Labor and Industries, 7273 Linderson Way S.W., Room S117, Tumwater, WA, on May 27, 2008, at 9:00 a.m.

Date of Intended Adoption: May 30, 2008.

Submit Written Comments to: Sally Elliott, Department of Labor and Industries, P.O. Box 44400, Olympia, WA 98504-4400, e-mail yous235@lni.wa.gov, fax (360) 902-5292, by May 27, 2008.

Assistance for Persons with Disabilities: Contact Sally Elliott by May 1, 2008, at (360) 902-6411 or yous235@lni.wa.gov.

Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: The purpose of this rule making is to increase fees by 5.53%, which is the office of financial management's maximum allowable fiscal growth rate factor for fiscal year 2008. We evaluated the program's budgets and projected revenue and determined fee increases are necessary to help cover the cost of ongoing services of the factory assembled structures and plumber certification programs. The programs received legislative authorization this past legislative session for the fee increases.

Reasons Supporting Proposal: See Purpose above.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: Chapters 18.106 and 43.22 RCW, chapter 285, Laws of 2008 (EHB 3381), and chapter 329, Laws of 2008 (ESHB 2687).

Statute Being Implemented: Chapters 18.106 and 43.22 RCW, chapter 285, Laws of 2008 (EHB 3381), and chapter 329, Laws of 2008 (ESHB 2687).

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

Name of Proponent: Department of labor and industries, governmental.

Name of Agency Personnel Responsible for Drafting: Sally Elliott, Tumwater, Washington, (360) 902-6411; Implementation and Enforcement: Patrick Woods, Tumwater, Washington, (360) 902-6348.

No small business economic impact statement has been prepared under chapter 19.85 RCW. The department is exempt from preparing a small business economic impact statement under RCW 19.85.025 referencing RCW 34.05.310(4), since the purpose of this rule making is to set and adjust fees based upon the office of financial management's maximum allowable fiscal growth rate factor for fiscal year 2008.

A cost-benefit analysis is not required under RCW 34.05.328. The department is exempt from preparing a cost-benefit analysis under RCW 34.05.328 (5)(b)(vi) because the rule making is setting and adjusting fees based upon the office of financial management's maximum allowable fiscal growth rate factor for fiscal year 2008.
