WITHDRAWAL OF PROPOSED RULES

DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH


[ Filed December 3, 2010, 11:19 a.m. ]

The department is withdrawing the CR-102 for WAC 246-933-460 which was filed October 19, 2010, and published in WSR 10-21-081. A hearing was scheduled for December 6, 2010.

The proposal adds the following organizations, institutions and individuals to the list of entities that are presumed to qualify as continuing education providers: A veterinarian who is a board certified specialist or on faculty at an accredited veterinary college, The United States Animal Health Association, the American Association of Veterinary Laboratory Diagnosticians and the Washington state department of agriculture.

Executive Order 10-06, dated November 17, 2010, orders the suspension of noncritical rule development and adoption through December 31, 2011. The department of health is in the process of determining whether specific rules can move forward under the executive order. It is expected that this process may take several weeks beyond the scheduled time for the hearing date. For this reason, the CR-102 for WAC 246-933-460 is being withdrawn.

Individuals requiring information on this rule should contact Judy Haenke, program manager for the veterinary board of governors at (360) 236-4947.
