SOCIAL AND HEALTH SERVICES
Effective Date of Rule: Immediately.
Purpose: To provide a correct physical address for the department's board of appeals (BOA). The BOA moved to Office Building 2 on June 18, 2010.
Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Amending WAC 388-02-0030.
Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 34.05.020.
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: Parties who appeal an administrative law judge's decision in a case before the department may need to physically serve petitions or responses on the BOA. The rule will give them the correct physical location for service of those pleadings. This emergency rule will supersede the emergency rule filed as WSR 10-15-112 on July 21, 2010. This emergency rule corrects the zip code erroneously provided in the July 21, 2010, filing.
