PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
The department is withdrawing the CR-101 for WAC 246-358-990, 246-359-990 and 246-361-990, temporary worker housing fees, temporary worker housing construction standard fees, and cherry harvest camp fees, filed August 22, 2007, and published in WSR 07-17-171. The original proposal pointed out that the migrant farmworker housing program fee schedules were complicated and difficult for department staff to calculate. The purpose of the proposal was to revise the fee language so that department staff could efficiently process licensing fees via the newly implemented computerized licensing system.
Since the filing of WSR 07-17-171, the department encountered difficulties with revising the fee language in such a way that it would be compatible with the new licensing software and yet not alter the established fee amounts in any way. Adjusting fee amounts was not within the scope of this CR-101. For these reasons, the CR-101 for WAC 246-358-990, 246-359-990 and 246-361-990 is no longer needed.
Individuals requiring information on this rule should contact Debra Fisher, temporary worker housing program manager, at (360) 236-2942.
