ORDER CORRECTING TEXT OF WAC 480-120-071 (8)(a) and (b) SUBMITTED FOR ADOPTION


In the matter of amending WAC 480-120-071 and 480-120-103, relating to extension of service and application for service.

1 On September 3, 2008, the Washington utilities and transportation commission (commission) filed with the code reviser an order amending and adopting rules permanently in WAC 480-120-071 and 480-120-103, relating to extension of service and application for service. The order is filed at WSR 08-19-001. The effective date for the adoption of the rules is October 4, 2008.

2 The commission recently learned that an intended addition of the effective date to subsections (8)(a) and (b) of WAC 480-120-071, as published at WSR 08-19-001, was erroneously omitted in the rule submitted for adoption. The effective date that should have been included in subsections (8)(a) and (b) is set out below in italics:

WAC 480-120-071 Extension of service.

(8) Application of rule.

(a) The prior WAC 480-120-071, as it was in effect on June 1, 2008, will continue to apply to applications for extension of service that a company has completed or accepted before October 4, 2008.

(b) This section, as amended effective October 4, 2008, applies to all other requests for service before and after the effective date.

3 Failure to insert the effective date of October 4, 2008, to subsections (8)(a) and (b) of WAC 480-120-071, submitted to the code reviser with the adoption order constitutes an oversight. Accordingly the commission enters this order to correct the rule by inserting the October 4, 2008, effective date in subsections (8)(a) and (b) of WAC 480-120-071. A copy of the corrected rule is shown below this order as Appendix A.

DATED at Olympia, Washington, September 29, 2008.
