Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Chapter 304, Laws of 2017 (EHB 1595) amended the act to require that if an agency uses the act's default copy fee schedule the agency must have a rule declaring it is not calculating the actual copying costs because to do so would be unduly burdensome.

Process for Developing New Rule: Negotiated rule making.
