PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION
[Filed January 11, 2019, 3:02 p.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: Administration of toll and fee collection, accounts and penalties on Washington state toll facilities.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The Washington state department of transportation (WSDOT) has statutory authority to administer tolls on designated toll facilities. Rules are needed to define customer requirements to use toll facilities and WSDOT procedures for processing transactions and penalties. This rule making is required to update specific requirements and procedures that will change when a new toll back office system becomes operational.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: This rule making will be coordinated with the Washington state transportation commission.
Process for Developing New Rule: Agency study.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting WSDOT Toll Division, 401 Second Avenue South, #300, Seattle, WA 98104, phone 206-464-1220, fax 206-464-1189, email TollingReferrals@wsdot.wa.gov, web site http://wsdot.wa.gov/tolling.
