PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY

DEPARTMENT OF

SOCIAL AND HEALTH SERVICES
(Aging and Disability Services)

[ Filed April 19, 2011, 10:40 a.m. ]

Subject of Possible Rule Making: The department is amending WAC 388-832-0025.

Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 74.08.090.

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The department is proposing to amend rules for clients that are on the individual and family services program and receive funding through the state supplementary program (SSP). The proposed amendments also do not allow clients to receive state funded emergency or one time awards. This amendment is necessary to match the SSP WAC that we have filed in emergency status.

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

Process for Developing New Rule: DSHS welcomes the public to take part in developing the rules. Anyone interested should contact the staff person identified below. At a later date, DSHS will file a proposal with the office of the code reviser with a notice of proposed rule making. A copy of the proposal will be sent to everyone on the mailing list and to anyone who requests a copy.

Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Meredith Kelly, Division of Developmental Disabilities, P.O. Box 45310, Olympia, WA 98504-5310, phone (360) 725-3524, fax (360) 407-0955, TTY 1-800-833-6388, e-mail kellymj@dshs.wa.gov.
