Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: Repeal WAC 388-526-2610.

No small business economic impact statement has been prepared under chapter 19.85 RCW. HCA has analyzed the proposed rules and concludes that they do not impose more than minor costs for affected small businesses.
A cost-benefit analysis is not required under RCW 34.05.328. RCW 34.05.328 does not apply to HCA rules unless requested by the joint administrative rules [review] committee or applied voluntarily.
