PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY

DEPARTMENT OF LICENSING


[ Filed July 18, 2011, 11:45 a.m. ]

Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 308-104-075 Prohibited practices.

Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 46.01.110, 46.20.119, and 46.20.291.

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The department has experienced a recent increase in incidences of fraudulent application from individuals who have falsely used a Washington state residence address in an attempt to obtain an initial Washington state driver's license or identicard. The department is proposing to amend WAC 308-104-075 to include administrative sanctions imposed for committing a prohibited practice in applying for an identicard, and to increase potential denial period following fraudulent application for a driver's license or identicard. It is anticipated that such amendments will deter fraudulent application.

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

Process for Developing New Rule: Internal review and stakeholder input.

Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Clark J. Holloway, P.O. Box 9030, Olympia, WA 98507-9030, phone (360) 902-3846, e-mail cholloway@dol.wa.gov, fax (360) 586-8351.
