PERMANENT RULES

DEPARTMENT OF LICENSING


[ Filed September 12, 2008, 10:15 a.m. , effective November 1, 2008 ]


Effective Date of Rule: November 1, 2008.

Purpose: In the 2008 legislative session, the department of licensing's security guard program was granted an increase in spending authority to pay for increased expenditures. Because the program must be self supporting under RCW 43.24.086, the funds to pay program expenses must come from licensing fees. An increase in security guard applicants and the requirement to electronically transmit fingerprint cards to the Washington state patrol (WSP) has resulted in a workload increase that is beyond the capacity of the current data entry staff of 2.4 FTEs.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Amending WAC 308-19-150.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: Chapter 18.170 RCW.

Adopted under notice filed as WSR 08-15-083 on July 16, 2008.

Changes Other than Editing from Proposed to Adopted Version: There are two minor clarifications made to WAC 308-19-101(5) and 308-19-140(5). Neither of these revisions changed the requirements or procedures as first proposed.
