Subject of Possible Rule Making: Chapter 392-143 WAC, Transportation—Specifications for school buses.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 46.61.380.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Chapter 392-143 WAC establishes the specifications governing the design and marking of school buses owned and operated in Washington. The office of superintendent of public instruction is considering revising the rules regarding nonpresented buses during inspections and multifunction school activity buses, and making additional changes to ensure all school bus specifications are up-to-date with federal and state regulations.
Process for Developing New Rule: Early solicitation of public comments and recommendations regarding new or amended rules and consideration of the comments and recommendations in the course of drafting rules.
