EMERGENCY RULES

DEPARTMENT OF LICENSING


[ Filed June 1, 2010, 9:37 a.m. , effective July 1, 2010 ]


Effective Date of Rule: July 1, 2010.

Purpose: To correct error in the firm/assumed name fee from $210.00 to $200.00 and correct the subsequent fingerprint processing fee.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Amending 1 [WAC 308-124A-775].

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 18.85.041, 18.85.061.

Other Authority: RCW 18.85.451.

Under RCW 34.05.350 the agency for good cause finds that immediate adoption, amendment, or repeal of a rule is necessary for the preservation of the public health, safety, or general welfare, and that observing the time requirements of notice and opportunity to comment upon adoption of a permanent rule would be contrary to the public interest.

Reasons for this Finding: RCW 18.85.451 is effective July 1, 2010. The law does not allow for the collection of $10.00 fee for real estate firms. Thus the fee needs to be lowered from $210.00 to $200.00. The state patrol/FBI changed the fee for fingerprinting on subsequent attempts.

Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Comply with Federal Statute: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; Federal Rules or Standards: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; or Recently Enacted State Statutes: New 1 [0], Amended 0 [1], Repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted at Request of a Nongovernmental Entity: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted on the Agency's Own Initiative: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

Date Adopted: June 1, 2010.
