DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE


[ Filed August 4, 2008, 2:01 p.m. ]

Title of Rule and Other Identifying Information: WAC 16-124-011 Dairy technician license, the department is proposing to repeal this section as it duplicates what is already provided for in statute under RCW 15.36.081 which states in part, "...All dairy technicians' licenses shall expire on December 31 of odd-numbered years."

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 Teresa Norman, Rules Coordinator, Washington State Department of Agriculture, P.O. Box 42560, Olympia, WA 98504-2560 , AND RECEIVED BY October 6, 5:00 p.m.


Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: The purpose of this proposal is to use the expedited rule-making process to repeal the section of rule for dairy technician license.

Reasons Supporting Proposal: The department, under its rule review process, has reviewed this rule and determined that RCW 15.36.081 contains provisions for the dairy technician license including when the license expires. WAC 16-124-011 contains only a provision for when a dairy technician license expires. Therefore, this section of rule is no longer needed.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: Chapters 15.36 and 34.05 RCW.

Statute Being Implemented: Chapter 15.36 RCW.

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