NOTICE

THIS RULE IS BEING PROPOSED UNDER AN EXPEDITED RULE-MAKING PROCESS THAT WILL ELIMINATE THE NEED FOR THE AGENCY TO HOLD PUBLIC HEARINGS, PREPARE A SMALL BUSINESS ECONOMIC IMPACT STATEMENT, OR PROVIDE RESPONSES TO THE CRITERIA FOR A SIGNIFICANT LEGISLATIVE RULE. IF YOU OBJECT TO THIS USE OF THE EXPEDITED RULE-MAKING PROCESS, YOU MUST EXPRESS YOUR OBJECTIONS IN WRITING AND THEY MUST BE SENT TO Lori Anderson, Public Disclosure Commission, P.O. Box 40908, Olympia, WA 98504-0908 or lori.anderson@pdc.wa.gov , AND RECEIVED BY May 8, 2012.


Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: Correct typographical/math errors following the recodification of chapter 42.17 RCW to chapter 42.17A RCW.

Reasons Supporting Proposal: The public disclosure commission (PDC) is required to annually adjust the disclosure threshold contained in RCW 42.17A.250 [(1)](g). The last adjustment, adopted by the commission on December 8, 2011, set the threshold at $2,700. 2SHB 2016 recodified chapter 42.17 RCW to chapter 42.17A RCW effective January 1, 2012, and set the disclosure threshold at $2,550, which was the threshold in 2008 when the bill was drafted. The proposed amendment calculates the 2012 adjustment using the base amount of $2,550.
