PERMANENT RULES

DEPARTMENT OF

RETIREMENT SYSTEMS

[ Filed December 21, 2009, 3:54 p.m. , effective January 21, 2010 ]


Effective Date of Rule: Thirty-one days after filing.

Purpose: The purpose of this rule-making order is to repeal WAC 415-200-020, as it has been determined to be no longer necessary. WAC 415-200-020 addresses the frequency and location of meetings of the employee retirement benefits board (ERBB). The frequency of ERBB meetings is dictated by statute, RCW 41.50.086. The department notifies the public of the date and location of all ERBB meetings by complying with the public meeting notice requirements of chapter 42.30 RCW, the Open Public Meetings Act, by filing a yearly schedule of ERBB meetings with the office of the code reviser. Repealing this rule provides the department the flexibility of changing the location of ERBB meetings as needed, without having to amend its rules each time.

As permitted by RCW 34.05.353 (1)(a), the department is repealing a rule that relates only to internal government operations and is not subject to violation by a person.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 415-200-020.
