WSR 12-14-110

PERMANENT RULES

TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION


[ Filed July 3, 2012, 3:22 p.m. , effective August 3, 2012 ]


Effective Date of Rule: Thirty-one days after filing.

Purpose: The commission must consider toll rates that will help maintain travel time, speed, and reliability on the SR 520 corridor and must set and adjust toll rates to generate revenue sufficient and necessary to cover costs and obligations described in RCW 47.56.830 and 47.56.850.

Modifications made to chapter 468-270 WAC, adopted by the Washington state transportation commission on January 5, 2011, and filed under WSR 11-04-007, [on] January 20, 2011, stated "Starting July 1, 2012, the toll rates will increase two and one-half percent annually, subject to review and potential adjustment by the commission, in order to generate toll revenue sufficient to meet the costs and obligations listed in RCW 47.56.830 through 47.56.850."

This is a clarifying amendment that updates the toll rate tables to reflect the two and one-half percent increase adopted in 2011 and does not change the rules effect nor does it make any substantive changes to the rule.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Amending WAC 468-270-071.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 47.56.785, 47.56.795, 47.56.830, 47.56.850, and 47.56.870.
