PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH
[Filed August 6, 2019, 12:31 p.m.]
The department of health (department) is withdrawing the CR-101 filed as WSR 18-01-076, which was filed on December 15, 2017. At the time the department was considering clarifying within chapter 246-916 WAC who an "authorized volunteer" is.
The department is withdrawing this CR-101 as legislation (E2SHB [ESSB] 5688) was passed in 2019, which removed the authorized volunteer exemption from statute (RCW 18.250.050
(5)). This legislation makes rule writing unnecessary as it has addressed any concerns caused by not having the term "authorized volunteer" defined.
Individuals requiring information on this rule should contact Bruce Bronoske, Jr., at 360-236-4843.
