PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY

PARKS AND RECREATION

COMMISSION

[ Filed June 2, 2010, 9:59 a.m. ]

Subject of Possible Rule Making: Washington state parks is reviewing chapter 352-24 WAC, Concessions and leases, with specific emphasis on the performance and application of WAC 352-24-010 Approval of concessions and leases -- Concession policies.

Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 79A.05.030.

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The state park[s] commission has implemented a series of agency policies relating to the leasing of parklands. With the recent integration of the agencies' concession leasing program with the real property agreement program, WAC 352-24-010 is no longer needed to direct the agency on the process of authorizing concession leases.

Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.

Process for Developing New Rule: Agency study.

Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication. To obtain additional background information or to discuss the preproposal, contact Steve Hahn, Lands Program Manager, Washington State Parks, 1111 Israel Road, Olympia, WA 98504-4265, (360) 902-8683, Steve.Hahn@parks.wa.gov.
