Original Notice.

Exempt from preproposal statement of inquiry under RCW 34.05.310(4).

Title of Rule and Other Identifying Information: WAC 308-13-150 What are the landscape architect fees and charges?

Hearing Location(s): Department of Licensing (DOL), 405 Black Lake Boulevard, Conference Room 2209, Olympia, WA 98502, on May 25, 2012, at 9:00 a.m.

Date of Intended Adoption: May 29, 2012.

Submit Written Comments to: Kezia Prater, P.O. Box 9045, Olympia, WA 98507, e-mail kprater@dol.wa.gov, fax (360) 570-7098, by May 25, 2012.

Assistance for Persons with Disabilities: Contact Autumn Dryden by May 24, 2012, TTY (360) 664-0116 or (360) 664-1567.

Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: The proposed rule change will temporarily suspend partial licensing fees in an effort to maintain a balanced budget for the landscape architect licensing program.

Reasons Supporting Proposal: The proposed rule change will allow the program to collect fees that are appropriate to the program's budget needs. Collecting full fees would result in over collection of revenue and cause the fund balance to increase at an unreasonable rate.

Statute Being Implemented: RCW 43.24.086.

Rule is not necessitated by federal law, federal or state court decision.
