PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
This serves as notice that the department is withdrawing the CR-101 for chapter 246-843 [246-980] WAC which was filed July 11, 2012, and published as WSR 12-15-024. The original intent of the preproposal was to amend rules for the home care aide credential to reflect changes in ESHB 2314 (2012) and other recent changes in the law.
The department would like to withdraw this CR-101 and file a new CR-101 for chapter 246-843 [246-980] WAC to include consideration of changing the time frame the long-term care worker has to turn in an application for a home care aide credential, and the documentation required for applicants to take the home care aide examination.
Individuals requiring information on this rule should contact Kendra Pitzler, program manager for the home care aide program, at (360) 236-4723.
