PERMANENT RULES

STATE BOARD OF HEALTH


[ Filed May 21, 2010, 2:19 p.m. , effective July 1, 2011 ]


Effective Date of Rule: July 1, 2011.

Other Findings Required by Other Provisions of Law as Precondition to Adoption or Effectiveness of Rule: ESHB 1244, section 222(1), of 2009 restricts implementation of new or amended primary and secondary school facility rules through June 2011 without funding by the legislature.

Purpose: This filing extends the effective date of new sections of chapter 246-366 WAC, Primary and secondary schools; and new chapter 246-366A WAC, Environmental health and safety standards for primary and secondary schools, because the 2010 legislature did not provide funding for implementation of these rules. These rules provide minimum environmental health and safety standards for all primary and secondary schools in Washington.

FILING NOTE: New sections of chapter 246-366 WAC, Primary and secondary schools, and new chapter 246-366A WAC, Environmental health and safety standards for primary and secondary schools, were originally adopted by the state board of health on August 12, 2009. The board filed a rule-making order, WSR 10-01-174, on December 22, 2009, setting the effective date for the new rules as July 1, 2010. On March 10, 2010, the board voted to file an amended rule-making order to change the effective date of these new rules to July 1, 2011.
