Mr. Speaker:


             The Senate receded from its amendment to SUBSTITUTE HOUSE BILL NO. 1233, and under suspension of the rules returned the bill to second reading for purpose of amendment. The Senate further adopted the following amendment and passed the measure as amended:


              Strike everything after the enacting clause and insert the following:


              "NEW SECTION. Sec. 1. A new section is added to chapter 74.13 RCW to read as follows:

              (1) For the purposes of this section, "kin" means persons eighteen years of age or older to whom the child is related by blood, adoption, or marriage, including marriages that have been dissolved, and means: (a) Any person denoted by the prefix "grand" or "great"; (b) sibling, whether full, half, or step; (c) uncle or aunt; (d) nephew or niece; or (e) first cousin.

              (2) The department shall plan, design, and implement strategies to prioritize the placement of children with willing and able kin when out-of-home placement is required.

              These strategies must include at least the following:

              (a) Development of standardized, statewide procedures to be used when searching for kin of children prior to out-of-home placement. The procedures must include a requirement that documentation be maintained in the child's case record that identifies kin, and documentation that identifies the assessment criteria and procedures that were followed during all kin searches. The procedures must be used when a child is placed in out-of-home care under authority of chapter 13.34 RCW, when a petition is filed under RCW 13.32A.140, or when a child is placed under a voluntary placement agreement. To assist with implementation of the procedures, the department shall request that the juvenile court require parents to disclose to the department all contact information for available and appropriate kin within two weeks of an entered order. For placements under signed voluntary agreements, the department shall encourage the parents to disclose to the department all contact information for available and appropriate kin within two weeks of the date the parent signs the voluntary placement agreement.

              (b) Development of procedures for conducting active outreach efforts to identify and locate kin during all searches. The procedures must include at least the following elements:

              (i) Reasonable efforts to interview known kin, friends, teachers, and other identified community members who may have knowledge of the child's kin, within sixty days of the child entering out-of-home care;

              (ii) Increased use of those procedures determined by research to be the most effective methods of promoting reunification efforts, permanency planning, and placement decisions;

              (iii) Contacts with kin identified through outreach efforts and interviews under this subsection as part of permanency planning activities and change of placement discussions;

              (iv) Establishment of a process for ongoing contact with kin who express interest in being considered as a placement resource for the child; and

              (v) A requirement that when the decision is made to not place the child with any kin, the department provides documentation as part of the child's individual service and safety plan that clearly identifies the rationale for the decision and corrective action or actions the kin must take to be considered as a viable placement option.

              (3) Nothing in this section shall be construed to create an entitlement to services or to create judicial authority to order the provision of services to any person or family if the services are unavailable or unsuitable or the child or family is not eligible for such services.


              NEW SECTION. Sec. 2. (1) The department of social and health services shall collaborate with one or more nonprofit community-based agencies to develop a grant proposal for submission to potential funding sources, including governmental entities and private foundations, to establish a minimum of two pilot projects to assist kinship caregivers with understanding and navigating the system of services for children in out-of-home care. The proposal must seek to establish at least one project in eastern Washington and one project in western Washington, each project to be managed by a participating community-based agency.

              (2) The kinship care navigators funded through the proposal shall be responsible for at least the following:

              (a) Understanding the various state agency systems serving kinship caregivers;

              (b) Working in partnership with local community service providers;

              (c) Tracking trends, concerns, and other factors related to kinship caregivers; and

              (d) Assisting in establishing stable, respectful relationships between kinship caregivers and department staff.

              (3) Implementation of the kinship care navigator pilot projects is contingent upon receipt of nonstate or private funding for that purpose.

              (4) For the purposes of this section, "kinship" has the same meaning as "kin" given in section 1(1) of this act.

              (5) This section expires January 1, 2007.


              NEW SECTION. Sec. 3. (1) The department of social and health services shall report to the legislature and the governor on the implementation of the kinship care navigator pilot projects with recommendations on statewide implementation of the pilot projects one year following implementation of the pilot projects. The report shall: Include data that demonstrates whether the pilot project reduced actual barriers to access to services; identify statutory and administrative barriers for kin who give care; and recommend ways to reduce or eliminate the barriers without adverse consequences to children placed with kin.

              (2) This section expires January 1, 2007.


              NEW SECTION. Sec. 4. A new section is added to chapter 74.13 RCW to read as follows:

              (1) Within existing resources, the department shall establish an oversight committee to monitor, guide, and report on kinship care recommendations and implementation activities. The committee shall:

              (a) Draft a kinship care definition that is restricted to persons related by blood or marriage, including marriages that have been dissolved, or for a minor defined as an "Indian child" under the federal Indian child welfare act (25 U.S.C. Sec. 1901 et seq.), the definition of "extended family member" under the federal Indian child welfare act, and a set of principles. If the committee concludes that one or more program or service would be more efficiently and effectively delivered under a different definition of kin, it shall state what definition is needed, and identify the program or service in the report. It shall also provide evidence of how the program or service will be more efficiently and effectively delivered under the different definition. The department shall not adopt rules or policies changing the definition of kin without authorizing legislation;

              (b) Monitor the implementation of recommendations contained in the 2002 kinship care report;

              (c) Partner with nonprofit organizations and private sector businesses to guide a public education awareness campaign; and

              (d) Assist with developing future recommendations on kinship care issues.

              (2) The oversight committee must consist of a minimum of thirty percent kinship caregivers, who shall represent a diversity of kinship families. Statewide representation with geographic, ethnic, and gender diversity is required. Other members shall include representatives of the department, representatives of relevant state agencies, representatives of the private nonprofit and business sectors, child advocates, representatives of Washington state Indian tribes as defined under the federal Indian welfare act (25 U.S.C. Sec. 1901 et seq.), and representatives of the legal or judicial field. Birth parents, foster parents, and others who have an interest in these issues may also be included.

              (3) To the extent funding is available, the department may reimburse nondepartmental members of the oversight committee for costs incurred in participating in the meetings of the oversight committee.

              (4) The kinship care oversight committee shall report to the legislature and the governor on the status of kinship care issues by December 1, 2004.

              (5) This section expires January 1, 2005."


              On page 1, line 1 of the title, after "caregivers;" strike the remainder of the title and insert "adding new sections to chapter 74.13 RCW; creating new sections; and providing expiration dates."

SENATE AMENDMENTS TO HOUSE BILL

April 16, 2003

Mr. Speaker:


             The Senate has passed SUBSTITUTE HOUSE BILL NO. 2215, with the following amendment:


              Strike everything after the enacting clause and insert the following:


              "Sec. 1. RCW 46.70.180 and 2001 c 272 s 10 and 2001 c 64 s 9 are each reenacted and amended to read as follows:

              Each of the following acts or practices is unlawful:

              (1) To cause or permit to be advertised, printed, displayed, published, distributed, broadcasted, televised, or disseminated in any manner whatsoever, any statement or representation with regard to the sale, lease, or financing of a vehicle which is false, deceptive, or misleading, including but not limited to the following:

              (a) That no down payment is required in connection with the sale of a vehicle when a down payment is in fact required, or that a vehicle may be purchased for a smaller down payment than is actually required;

              (b) That a certain percentage of the sale price of a vehicle may be financed when such financing is not offered in a single document evidencing the entire security transaction;

              (c) That a certain percentage is the amount of the service charge to be charged for financing, without stating whether this percentage charge is a monthly amount or an amount to be charged per year;

              (d) That a new vehicle will be sold for a certain amount above or below cost without computing cost as the exact amount of the factory invoice on the specific vehicle to be sold;

              (e) That a vehicle will be sold upon a monthly payment of a certain amount, without including in the statement the number of payments of that same amount which are required to liquidate the unpaid purchase price.

              (2)(a) To incorporate within the terms of any purchase and sale or lease agreement any statement or representation with regard to the sale, lease, or financing of a vehicle which is false, deceptive, or misleading, including but not limited to terms that include as an added cost to the selling price or capitalized cost of a vehicle an amount for licensing or transfer of title of that vehicle which is not actually due to the state, unless such amount has in fact been paid by the dealer prior to such sale. However, an amount not to exceed thirty-five dollars per vehicle sale or lease may be charged by a dealer to recover administrative costs for collecting motor vehicle excise taxes, licensing and registration fees and other agency fees, verifying and clearing titles, transferring titles, perfecting, releasing, or satisfying liens or other security interests, and other administrative and documentary services rendered by a dealer in connection with the sale or lease of a vehicle and in carrying out the requirements of this chapter or any other provisions of state law.

              (b) A dealer may charge the documentary service fee in (a) of this subsection under the following conditions:

              (i) The documentary service fee is disclosed in writing to a prospective purchaser or lessee before the execution of a purchase and sale or lease agreement;

              (ii) The documentary service fee is not represented to the purchaser or lessee as a fee or charge required by the state to be paid by either the dealer or prospective purchaser or lessee;

              (iii) The documentary service fee is separately designated from the selling price or capitalized cost of the vehicle and from any other taxes, fees, or charges; and

              (iv) Dealers disclose in any advertisement that a documentary service fee in an amount up to thirty-five dollars may be added to the sale price or the capitalized cost.

              For the purposes of this subsection (2), the term "documentary service fee" means the optional amount charged by a dealer to provide the services specified in (a) of this subsection.

              (3) To set up, promote, or aid in the promotion of a plan by which vehicles are to be sold or leased to a person for a consideration and upon further consideration that the purchaser or lessee agrees to secure one or more persons to participate in the plan by respectively making a similar purchase and in turn agreeing to secure one or more persons likewise to join in said plan, each purchaser or lessee being given the right to secure money, credits, goods, or something of value, depending upon the number of persons joining the plan.

              (4) To commit, allow, or ratify any act of "bushing" which is defined as follows: Taking from a prospective buyer or lessee of a vehicle a written order or offer to purchase or lease, or a contract document signed by the buyer or lessee, which:

              (a) Is subject to the dealer's, or his or her authorized representative's future acceptance, and the dealer fails or refuses within three calendar days, exclusive of Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, and prior to any further negotiations with said buyer or lessee, either (i) to deliver to the buyer or lessee the dealer's signed acceptance, or (ii) to void the order, offer, or contract document and tender the return of any initial payment or security made or given by the buyer or lessee, including but not limited to money, check, promissory note, vehicle keys, a trade-in, or certificate of title to a trade-in; or

              (b) Permits the dealer to renegotiate a dollar amount specified as trade-in allowance on a vehicle delivered or to be delivered by the buyer or lessee as part of the purchase price or lease, for any reason except:

              (i) Failure to disclose that the vehicle's certificate of ownership has been branded for any reason, including, but not limited to, status as a rebuilt vehicle as provided in RCW 46.12.050 and 46.12.075; or

              (ii) Substantial physical damage or latent mechanical defect occurring before the dealer took possession of the vehicle and which could not have been reasonably discoverable at the time of the taking of the order, offer, or contract; or

              (iii) Excessive additional miles or a discrepancy in the mileage. "Excessive additional miles" means the addition of five hundred miles or more, as reflected on the vehicle's odometer, between the time the vehicle was first valued by the dealer for purposes of determining its trade-in value and the time of actual delivery of the vehicle to the dealer. "A discrepancy in the mileage" means (A) a discrepancy between the mileage reflected on the vehicle's odometer and the stated mileage on the signed odometer statement; or (B) a discrepancy between the mileage stated on the signed odometer statement and the actual mileage on the vehicle; or

              (c) Fails to comply with the obligation of any written warranty or guarantee given by the dealer requiring the furnishing of services or repairs within a reasonable time.

              (5) To commit any offense relating to odometers, as such offenses are defined in RCW 46.37.540, 46.37.550, 46.37.560, and 46.37.570. A violation of this subsection is a class C felony punishable under chapter 9A.20 RCW.

              (6) For any vehicle dealer or vehicle salesperson to refuse to furnish, upon request of a prospective purchaser or lessee, for vehicles previously registered to a business or governmental entity, the name and address of the business or governmental entity.

              (7) To commit any other offense under RCW 46.37.423, 46.37.424, or 46.37.425.

              (8) To commit any offense relating to a dealer's temporary license permit, including but not limited to failure to properly complete each such permit, or the issuance of more than one such permit on any one vehicle. However, a dealer may issue a second temporary permit on a vehicle if the following conditions are met:

              (a) The lienholder fails to deliver the vehicle title to the dealer within the required time period;

              (b) The dealer has satisfied the lien; and

              (c) The dealer has proof that payment of the lien was made within two calendar days, exclusive of Saturday, Sunday, or a legal holiday, after the sales contract has been executed by all parties and all conditions and contingencies in the sales contract have been met or otherwise satisfied.

              (9) For a dealer, salesperson, or mobile home manufacturer, having taken an instrument or cash "on deposit" from a purchaser or lessee prior to the delivery of the bargained-for vehicle, to commingle the "on deposit" funds with assets of the dealer, salesperson, or mobile home manufacturer instead of holding the "on deposit" funds as trustee in a separate trust account until the purchaser or lessee has taken delivery of the bargained-for vehicle. Delivery of a manufactured home shall be deemed to occur in accordance with RCW 46.70.135(5). Failure, immediately upon receipt, to endorse "on deposit" instruments to such a trust account, or to set aside "on deposit" cash for deposit in such trust account, and failure to deposit such instruments or cash in such trust account by the close of banking hours on the day following receipt thereof, shall be evidence of intent to commit this unlawful practice: PROVIDED, HOWEVER, That a motor vehicle dealer may keep a separate trust account which equals his or her customary total customer deposits for vehicles for future delivery. For purposes of this section, "on deposit" funds received from a purchaser of a manufactured home means those funds that a seller requires a purchaser to advance before ordering the manufactured home, but does not include any loan proceeds or moneys that might have been paid on an installment contract.

              (10) For a dealer or manufacturer to fail to comply with the obligations of any written warranty or guarantee given by the dealer or manufacturer requiring the furnishing of goods and services or repairs within a reasonable period of time, or to fail to furnish to a purchaser or lessee, all parts which attach to the manufactured unit including but not limited to the undercarriage, and all items specified in the terms of a sales or lease agreement signed by the seller and buyer or lessee.

              (11) For a vehicle dealer to pay to or receive from any person, firm, partnership, association, or corporation acting, either directly or through a subsidiary, as a buyer's agent for consumers, any compensation, fee, purchase moneys or funds that have been deposited into or withdrawn out of any account controlled or used by any buyer's agent, gratuity, or reward in connection with the purchase, sale, or lease of a new motor vehicle.

              (12) For a buyer's agent, acting directly or through a subsidiary, to pay to or to receive from any motor vehicle dealer any compensation, fee, gratuity, or reward in connection with the purchase, sale, or lease of a new motor vehicle. In addition, it is unlawful for any buyer's agent to engage in any of the following acts on behalf of or in the name of the consumer:

              (a) Receiving or paying any purchase moneys or funds into or out of any account controlled or used by any buyer's agent;

              (b) Signing any vehicle purchase orders, sales contracts, leases, odometer statements, or title documents, or having the name of the buyer's agent appear on the vehicle purchase order, sales contract, lease, or title; or

              (c) Signing any other documentation relating to the purchase, sale, lease, or transfer of any new motor vehicle.

              It is unlawful for a buyer's agent to use a power of attorney obtained from the consumer to accomplish or effect the purchase, sale, lease, or transfer of ownership documents of any new motor vehicle by any means which would otherwise be prohibited under (a) through (c) of this subsection. However, the buyer's agent may use a power of attorney for physical delivery of motor vehicle license plates to the consumer.

              Further, it is unlawful for a buyer's agent to engage in any false, deceptive, or misleading advertising, disseminated in any manner whatsoever, including but not limited to making any claim or statement that the buyer's agent offers, obtains, or guarantees the lowest price on any motor vehicle or words to similar effect.

              (13) For a buyer's agent to arrange for or to negotiate the purchase, or both, of a new motor vehicle through an out-of-state dealer without disclosing in writing to the customer that the new vehicle would not be subject to chapter 19.118 RCW. This subsection also applies to leased vehicles. In addition, it is unlawful for any buyer's agent to fail to have a written agreement with the customer that: (a) Sets forth the terms of the parties' agreement; (b) discloses to the customer the total amount of any fees or other compensation being paid by the customer to the buyer's agent for the agent's services; and (c) further discloses whether the fee or any portion of the fee is refundable.

              (14) Being a manufacturer, other than a motorcycle manufacturer governed by chapter 46.94 RCW, to:

              (a) Coerce or attempt to coerce any vehicle dealer to order or accept delivery of any vehicle or vehicles, parts or accessories, or any other commodities which have not been voluntarily ordered by the vehicle dealer: PROVIDED, That recommendation, endorsement, exposition, persuasion, urging, or argument are not deemed to constitute coercion;

              (b) Cancel or fail to renew the franchise or selling agreement of any vehicle dealer doing business in this state without fairly compensating the dealer at a fair going business value for his or her capital investment which shall include but not be limited to tools, equipment, and parts inventory possessed by the dealer on the day he or she is notified of such cancellation or termination and which are still within the dealer's possession on the day the cancellation or termination is effective, if: (i) The capital investment has been entered into with reasonable and prudent business judgment for the purpose of fulfilling the franchise; and (ii) the cancellation or nonrenewal was not done in good faith. Good faith is defined as the duty of each party to any franchise to act in a fair and equitable manner towards each other, so as to guarantee one party freedom from coercion, intimidation, or threats of coercion or intimidation from the other party: PROVIDED, That recommendation, endorsement, exposition, persuasion, urging, or argument are not deemed to constitute a lack of good faith;

              (c) Encourage, aid, abet, or teach a vehicle dealer to sell or lease vehicles through any false, deceptive, or misleading sales or financing practices including but not limited to those practices declared unlawful in this section;

              (d) Coerce or attempt to coerce a vehicle dealer to engage in any practice forbidden in this section by either threats of actual cancellation or failure to renew the dealer's franchise agreement;

              (e) Refuse to deliver any vehicle publicly advertised for immediate delivery to any duly licensed vehicle dealer having a franchise or contractual agreement for the retail sale or lease of new and unused vehicles sold or distributed by such manufacturer within sixty days after such dealer's order has been received in writing unless caused by inability to deliver because of shortage or curtailment of material, labor, transportation, or utility services, or by any labor or production difficulty, or by any cause beyond the reasonable control of the manufacturer;

              (f) To provide under the terms of any warranty that a purchaser or lessee of any new or unused vehicle that has been sold or leased, distributed for sale or lease, or transferred into this state for resale or lease by the vehicle manufacturer may only make any warranty claim on any item included as an integral part of the vehicle against the manufacturer of that item.

              Nothing in this section may be construed to impair the obligations of a contract or to prevent a manufacturer, distributor, representative, or any other person, whether or not licensed under this chapter, from requiring performance of a written contract entered into with any licensee hereunder, nor does the requirement of such performance constitute a violation of any of the provisions of this section if any such contract or the terms thereof requiring performance, have been freely entered into and executed between the contracting parties. This paragraph and subsection (14)(b) of this section do not apply to new motor vehicle manufacturers governed by chapter 46.96 RCW.

              (15) Unlawful transfer of an ownership interest in a motor vehicle as defined in RCW 19.116.050.

              (16) To knowingly and intentionally engage in collusion with a registered owner of a vehicle to repossess and return or resell the vehicle to the registered owner in an attempt to avoid a suspended license impound under chapter 46.55 RCW. However, compliance with chapter 62A.9A RCW in repossessing, selling, leasing, or otherwise disposing of the vehicle, including providing redemption rights to the debtor, is not a violation of this section.

             Representative Linville moved the adoption of amendment (517):


              Strike everything after the enacting clause and insert the following:


              "NEW SECTION. Sec. 1. A livestock nutrient management program is essential to ensuring a healthy and productive livestock industry in Washington state. The goal of the program must be to provide clear guidance to livestock farms as to their responsibilities under state and federal law to protect water quality while maintaining a healthy business climate for these farms. The program should develop reasonable financial assistance resources, educational and technical assistance to meet these responsibilities, and provide for periodic inspection and enforcement actions to ensure compliance with state and federal water quality laws. The legislature intends that by 2006, there will be a fully functioning state program for concentrated animal feeding operations in the state, and that this program will be a single program for all livestock sectors.

              The legislature finds that a livestock nutrient management program is necessary to address the federal rule changes with which livestock operations must comply. Furthermore, budgetary conditions demand efficient and effective governance. In addition, many of the existing requirements and goals for dairy farms will be completed by December 2003, and revisions will be needed.


              NEW SECTION. Sec. 2. (1) A livestock nutrient management program development and oversight committee is created comprised of the following members, appointed as follows:

              (a) The director of the department of agriculture, or the director's designee, who shall serve as committee chair;

              (b) The director of the department of ecology, or the director's designee;

              (c) A representative of the United States environmental protection agency, appointed by the regional director of the agency unless the agency chooses not to be represented on the committee;

              (d) A representative of commercial shellfish growers, nominated by an organization representing these growers, appointed by the governor;

              (e) A representative of an environmental interest organization with familiarity and expertise in water quality issues, appointed by the governor;

              (f) A representative of tribal governments as nominated by an organization representing tribal governments, appointed by the governor;

              (g) A representative of Washington State University appointed by the dean of the college of agriculture and home economics;

              (h) A representative of the Washington association of conservation districts, appointed by the association's board of officers;

              (i) Three representatives of dairy producers nominated by a statewide organization representing dairy producers in the state, appointed by the governor;

              (j) Two representatives of beef cattle producers nominated by a statewide organization representing beef cattle producers in the state, appointed by the governor;

              (k) One representative of poultry producers nominated by a statewide organization representing poultry producers in the state, appointed by the governor;

              (l) One representative of the commercial cattle feedlots nominated by a statewide organization representing commercial cattle feedlots in the state, appointed by the governor; and

              (m) A representative of any other segment of the livestock industry determined by the director of agriculture to be subject to federal rules regulating animal feeding or concentrated animal feeding operations.

              (2) The state department of agriculture shall provide staff for the committee. The department of agriculture may request staff assistance be assigned by the United States environmental protection agency to assist the director in staffing the committee.

              (3) The committee shall establish a work plan that includes a list of tasks and a projected completion date for each task.

              (4) The committee may establish a subcommittee for each of the major industry segments that is covered by the recently adopted federal regulations that pertain to animal feeding operations and concentrated animal feeding operations. The subcommittee shall be composed of selected members of the full committee and additional representatives from that major segment of the livestock industry as determined by the director. The committee shall assign tasks to the subcommittees and shall establish dates for each subcommittee to report back to the full committee.

              (5) The committee shall examine the recently adopted federal regulations that provide for the regulation of animal feeding operations and concentrated animal feeding operations and develop a program to be administered by the department of agriculture that meets the requirements and time frames contained in the federal rules. Elements that the committee shall evaluate include:

              (a) A process for adopting standards and for developing plans for each operation that meet these standards;

              (b) A process for revising current national pollution discharge elimination system permits currently held by livestock operations and to transition these permits into the new system; and

              (c) In consultation with the director, a determination of what other work is needed and what other institutional relationships are needed or desirable. The committee shall consult with representatives of the statewide association of conservation districts regarding any functions or activities that are proposed to be provided through local conservation districts.

              (6) The committee shall review and comment on proposals for grants from the livestock nutrient management account created in RCW 90.64.150.

              (7) The committee shall develop draft proposed legislation that includes:

              (a) Statutory changes, including a time line to achieve the phased- in levels of regulation under federal law, to comply with the minimum requirements under federal law and the minimum requirements under chapter 90.48 RCW. These changes must meet the requirements necessary to enable the department of agriculture and the department of ecology to pursue the United States environmental protection agency's approval of the transfer of the permitting program as it relates to the concentrated animal feeding operations from the department of ecology to the department of agriculture;

              (b) Statutory changes necessitated by the transfer of functions under chapter 90.64 RCW from the department of ecology to the department of agriculture;

              (c) Continued inspection of dairy operations at least once every two years;

              (d) An outreach and education program to inform the various animal feeding operations and concentrated animal feeding operations of the program's elements; and

              (e) Annual reporting to the legislature on the progress of the state strategy for implementing the animal feeding operation and concentrated animal feeding operation.

              (8) The committee shall provide a report by December 1, 2003, to appropriate committees of the legislature that includes the results of the committee's evaluation under subsection (5) of this section and draft legislation to initiate the program.

              (9) This section expires June 30, 2006.


              Sec. 3. RCW 90.64.030 and 2002 c 327 s 1 are each amended to read as follows:

              (1) Under the inspection program established in RCW 90.64.023, the department may investigate a dairy farm to determine whether the operation is discharging pollutants or has a record of discharging pollutants into surface or ground waters of the state. Upon concluding an investigation, the department shall make a written report of its findings, including the results of any water quality measurements, photographs, or other pertinent information, and provide a copy of the report to the dairy producer within twenty days of the investigation.

              (2) The department shall investigate a written complaint filed with the department within three working days and shall make a written report of its findings including the results of any water quality measurements, photographs, or other pertinent information. Within twenty days of receiving a written complaint, a copy of the findings shall be provided to the dairy producer subject to the complaint, and to the complainant if the person gave his or her name and address to the department at the time the complaint was filed.

              (3) The department may consider past complaints against the same dairy farm from the same person and the results of its previous inspections, and has the discretion to decide whether to conduct an inspection if:

              (a) The same or a similar complaint or complaints have been filed against the same dairy farm within the immediately preceding six-month period; and

              (b) The department made a determination that the activity that was the subject of the prior complaint was not a violation.

              (4) If the decision of the department is not to conduct an inspection, it shall document the decision and the reasons for the decision within twenty days. The department shall provide the decision to the complainant if the name and address were provided to the department, and to the dairy producer subject to the complaint, and the department shall place the decision in the department's administrative records.

              (5) The report of findings of any inspection conducted as the result of either an oral or a written complaint shall be placed in the department's administrative records. Only findings of violations shall be entered into the data base identified in RCW 90.64.130.

              (6) A dairy farm that is determined to be a significant contributor of pollution based on actual water quality tests, photographs, or other pertinent information is subject to the provisions of this chapter and to the enforcement provisions of chapters 43.05 and 90.48 RCW, including civil penalties levied under RCW 90.48.144.

              (7) If the department determines that an unresolved water quality problem from a dairy farm requires immediate corrective action, the department shall notify the producer and the district in which the problem is located. When corrective actions are required to address such unresolved water quality problems, the department shall provide copies of all final dairy farm inspection reports and documentation of all formal regulatory and enforcement actions taken by the department against that particular dairy farm to the local conservation district and to the appropriate dairy farm within twenty days.

              (8) For a violation of water quality laws that is a first offense for a dairy producer, the penalty may be waived to allow the producer to come into compliance with water quality laws. The department shall record all legitimate violations and subsequent enforcement actions.

              (9) A discharge, including a storm water discharge, to surface waters of the state shall not be considered a violation of this chapter, chapter 90.48 RCW, or chapter 173-201A WAC, and shall therefore not be enforceable by the department of ecology or a third party, if at the time of the discharge, a violation is not occurring under RCW 90.64.010(18). In addition, a dairy producer shall not be held liable for violations of this chapter, chapter 90.48 RCW, chapter 173-201A WAC, or the federal clean water act due to the discharge of dairy nutrients to waters of the state resulting from spreading these materials on lands other than where the nutrients were generated, when the nutrients are spread by persons other than the dairy producer or the dairy producer's agent.

              (10) As provided under RCW 7.48.305, agricultural activities associated with the management of dairy nutrients are presumed to be reasonable and shall not be found to constitute a nuisance unless the activity has a substantial adverse effect on public health and safety.

              (11) This section specifically acknowledges that if a holder of a general or individual national pollutant discharge elimination system permit complies with the permit and the dairy nutrient management plan conditions for appropriate land application practices, the permit provides compliance with the federal clean water act and acts as a shield against citizen or agency enforcement for any additions of pollutants to waters of the state or of the United States as authorized by the permit.

              (12) A dairy producer who fails to have an approved dairy nutrient management plan by July 1, 2002, or a certified dairy nutrient management plan by December 31, 2003, and for which no appeals have been filed with the pollution control hearings board, is in violation of this chapter. Each month beyond these deadlines that a dairy producer is out of compliance with the requirement for either plan approval or plan certification shall be considered separate violations of chapter 90.64 RCW that may be subject to penalties. Such penalties may not exceed one hundred dollars per month for each violation up to a combined total of five thousand dollars. The department has discretion in imposing penalties for failure to meet deadlines for plan approval or plan certification if the failure to comply is due to lack of state funding for implementation of the program. Failure to register as required in RCW 90.64.017 shall subject a dairy producer to a maximum penalty of one hundred dollars. Penalties shall be levied by the department.


              Sec. 4. RCW 90.64.120 and 1993 c 221 s 13 are each amended to read as follows:

              (1) Nothing in this chapter shall affect the ((department's)) department of ecology's authority or responsibility to administer or enforce the national pollutant discharge elimination system permits for operators of concentrated dairy animal feeding operations, where required by federal regulations or to administer the provisions of chapter 90.48 RCW.

              (2) Unless the department of ecology delegates its authority under chapter 90.48 RCW to the department of agriculture pursuant to RCW 90.48.260, and until any such delegation of authority receives federal approval, the transfer specified in section 6 of this act shall not preclude the department of ecology from taking action related to animal feeding operations or concentrated animal feeding operations to protect water quality pursuant to its authority in chapter 90.48 RCW. Before taking such actions, the department of ecology shall notify the department of agriculture.


              Sec. 5. RCW 90.64.150 and 1998 c 262 s 15 are each amended to read as follows:

              The ((dairy waste)) livestock nutrient management account is created in the custody of the state treasurer. All receipts from monetary penalties levied pursuant to violations of this chapter must be deposited into the account. Expenditures from the account may be used only ((for the commission)) to provide grants ((to local conservation districts for the sole purpose of assisting dairy producers to develop and fully implement dairy nutrient management plans)) for research or education proposals that assist livestock operations to achieve compliance with state and federal water quality laws. The director of agriculture shall accept and prioritize research proposals and education proposals. Only the ((chairman of the commission)) director or the ((chairman's)) director's designee may authorize expenditures from the account. The account is subject to allotment procedures under chapter 43.88 RCW, but an appropriation is not required for expenditures.


              NEW SECTION. Sec. 6. A new section is added to chapter 90.64 RCW to read as follows:

              (1) All powers, duties, and functions of the department of ecology pertaining to chapter 90.64 RCW are transferred to the department of agriculture. All references to the director of ecology or the department of ecology in the Revised Code of Washington shall be construed to mean the director of agriculture or the department of agriculture when referring to the functions transferred in this section.

              (2)(a) All reports, documents, surveys, books, records, files, papers, or written material in the possession of the department of ecology pertaining to the powers, functions, and duties transferred shall be delivered to the custody of the department of agriculture. All cabinets, furniture, office equipment, motor vehicles, and other tangible property employed by the department of ecology in carrying out the powers, functions, and duties transferred shall be made available to the department of agriculture. All funds, credits, or other assets held in connection with the powers, functions, and duties transferred shall be assigned to the department of agriculture.

              (b) Any appropriations made to the department of ecology for carrying out the powers, functions, and duties transferred shall, on the effective date of this section, be transferred and credited to the department of agriculture.

              (c) Whenever any question arises as to the transfer of any funds, books, documents, records, papers, files, equipment, or other tangible property used or held in the exercise of the powers and the performance of the duties and functions transferred, the director of financial management shall make a determination as to the proper allocation and certify the same to the state agencies concerned.

              (3) All rules and all pending business before the department of ecology pertaining to the powers, functions, and duties transferred shall be continued and acted upon by the department of agriculture. All existing contracts and obligations shall remain in full force and shall be performed by the department of agriculture.

              (4) The transfer of the powers, duties, and functions of the department of ecology shall not affect the validity of any act performed before the effective date of this section.

              (5) If apportionments of budgeted funds are required because of the transfers directed by this section, the director of financial management shall certify the apportionments to the agencies affected, the state auditor, and the state treasurer. Each of these shall make the appropriate transfer and adjustments in funds and appropriation accounts and equipment records in accordance with the certification.


              Sec. 7. RCW 90.48.260 and 1988 c 220 s 1 are each amended to read as follows:

              The department of ecology is hereby designated as the State Water Pollution Control Agency for all purposes of the federal clean water act as it exists on February 4, 1987, and is hereby authorized to participate fully in the programs of the act as well as to take all action necessary to secure to the state the benefits and to meet the requirements of that act.

The department of ecology may delegate its authority under this chapter, including its national pollutant discharge elimination permit system authority and duties regarding animal feeding operations and concentrated animal feeding operations, to the department of agriculture through a memorandum of understanding. Until any such delegation receives federal approval, the department of agriculture's adoption or issuance of animal feeding operation and concentrated animal feeding operation rules, permits, programs, and directives pertaining to water quality shall be accomplished after reaching agreement with the director of the department of ecology. Adoption or issuance and implementation shall be accomplished so that compliance with such animal feeding operation and concentrated animal feeding operation rules, permits, programs, and directives will achieve compliance with all federal and state water pollution control laws. The powers granted herein include, among others, and notwithstanding any other provisions of chapter 90.48 RCW or otherwise, the following:

              The appropriations in this subsection are subject to the following conditions and limitations:

              (a) Regional support networks shall use portions of the general fund--state appropriation for implementation of working agreements with the vocational rehabilitation program which will maximize the use of federal funding for vocational programs.

              (b) From the general fund--state appropriations in this subsection, the secretary of social and health services shall assure that regional support networks reimburse the aging and adult services program for the general fund--state cost of medicaid personal care services that enrolled regional support network consumers use because of their psychiatric disability.

              (c) $4,222,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2004, $4,222,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2005, and $8,444,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation are provided solely for the continued operation of community residential and support services for persons whose treatment needs constitute substantial barriers to community placement and who no longer require active psychiatric treatment at an inpatient hospital level of care, no longer meet the criteria for inpatient involuntary commitment, and have been discharged from a state psychiatric hospital. Primary responsibility and accountability for provision of appropriate community support for persons placed with these funds shall reside with the mental health program and the regional support networks, with partnership and active support from the alcohol and substance abuse and from the aging and disability services administration. The department shall continue performance-based incentive contracts to provide appropriate community support services for individuals leaving the state hospitals under this subsection. The department shall first seek to contract with regional support networks before offering a contract to any other party. The funds appropriated in this subsection shall not be considered "available resources" as defined in RCW 71.24.025 and are not subject to the standard allocation formula applied in accordance with RCW 71.24.035(13)(a).

              (d) Within funds appropriated in this subsection, the department shall contract with the Clark county regional support network for development and operation of a project demonstrating collaborative methods for providing intensive mental health services in the school setting for severely emotionally disturbed children who are medicaid eligible. Project services are to be delivered by teachers and teaching assistants who qualify as, or who are under the supervision of, mental health professionals meeting the requirements of chapter 275-57 WAC. The department shall increase medicaid payments to the regional support network by the amount necessary to cover the necessary and allowable costs of the demonstration, not to exceed the upper payment limit specified for the regional support network in the department's medicaid waiver agreement with the federal government after meeting all other medicaid spending requirements assumed in this subsection. The regional support network shall provide the department with (i) periodic reports on project service levels, methods, and outcomes; and (ii) an intergovernmental transfer equal to the state share of the increased medicaid payment provided for operation of this project.

              (e) The health services account appropriation is provided solely for implementation of strategies which the department and the affected regional support networks conclude will best assure continued availability of community-based inpatient psychiatric services in all areas of the state. Such strategies may include, but are not limited to, emergency contracts for continued operation of inpatient facilities otherwise at risk of closure because of demonstrated uncompensated care; start-up grants for development of evaluation and treatment facilities; and increases in the rate paid for inpatient psychiatric services for medically indigent and/or general assistance for the unemployed patients. The funds provided in this subsection must be: (i) Prioritized for use in those areas of the state which are at greatest risk of lacking sufficient inpatient psychiatric treatment capacity, rather than being distributed on a formula basis; (ii) prioritized for use by those hospitals that do not receive low-income disproportionate share hospital payments as of the date of application for funding; and (iii) matched on a one-quarter local and three- quarters state basis by funding from the regional support network or networks in the area in which the funds are expended. Payments from the amount provided in this subsection shall not be made to any provider that has not agreed that, except for prospective rate increases, the payment shall offset, on a dollar-for-dollar basis, any liability that may be established against, or any settlement that may be agreed to by the state, regarding the rate of state reimbursement for inpatient psychiatric care. The funds provided in this subsection shall not be considered "available resources" as defined in RCW 71.24.025 and are not subject to the distribution formula established pursuant to RCW 71.24.035.

              (f) The department is authorized to implement a new formula for allocating available resources among the regional support networks. The distribution formula shall use the number of persons eligible for the state medical programs funded under chapter 74.09 RCW as the measure of the requirement for the number of acutely mentally ill, chronically mentally ill, severely emotionally disturbed children, and seriously disturbed in accordance with RCW 71.24.035(13)(a). The new formula shall be phased in over a period of no less than six years. Furthermore, the department shall increase the medicaid capitation rates which a regional support network would otherwise receive under the formula by an amount sufficient to assure that total funding allocated to the regional support network in fiscal year 2004 increases by up to 5.0 percent over the amount actually paid to that regional support network in fiscal year 2003, and by up to an additional 5.0 percent in fiscal year 2005, if total funding to the regional support network would otherwise increase by less than those percentages under the new formula, and provided that the nonfederal share of the higher medicaid payment rate is provided by the regional support network from local funds.

              The payments shall be conditioned upon a contractual commitment by the participating public hospital districts to make an intergovernmental transfer to the health services account equal to at least 91 percent of the additional payments. The state's teaching hospitals shall retain at least 28 percent of the amounts retained by hospitals under these programs, or the maximum allowable under the state teaching hospitals' limits as set under federal rules, whichever is less.

              (3) The department shall continue to extend medicaid eligibility to children through age 18 residing in households with incomes below 200 percent of the federal poverty level, and state children's health insurance program eligibility to those residing in households with incomes below 250 percent of the federal poverty level.

              (4) For purposes of RCW 74.09.800, no funds are appropriated in this section to provide maternity care services to low-income women who are not eligible to receive such services under the medical assistance program, Title XIX of the federal social security act.

              (5) No funds are appropriated in this section for continued operation of the buy-in program authorized in RCW 74.09.510(7) and 74.09.540.

              (6) Sufficient funds are appropriated in this section for the department to continue to provide podiatry services for medicaid- eligible adults.

              (8) $3,100,000 of the health services account appropriation, $8,416,000 of the general fund--local appropriation, and $11,516,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation are provided solely for grants to rural hospitals.

              (9) $20,000,000 of the health services account appropriation and $20,000,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation are provided solely for grants to nonrural hospitals.

              (11) The department shall separately track the total amount of any rebates obtained from drug manufacturers that are supplemental to the amounts required by federal law. The department shall report to the fiscal committees of the house of representatives and senate by January 15, 2004, and by January 15, 2005, on supplemental rebates negotiated to date, and their projected value through the end of the current and the next succeeding fiscal year.

              (13) The department of social and health services, the office of the superintendent of public instruction, and the department of health should jointly identify opportunities for early intervention and prevention activities that can help prevent disease and reduce oral health issues among children. Disease prevention among infants at the age of one year and among children entering the K-12 education system provides cost-effective ways to avoid higher health care spending later in life.

              (14) In determining financial eligibility for medicaid-funded services, the department is authorized to disregard recoveries by Holocaust survivors of insurance proceeds or other assets, as defined in RCW 48.104.030.

In designing strategies, the primary strategy considered shall be selective or direct contracting with durable medical equipment and supplies vendors or manufacturers.

              (18) The department shall, within available resources, design and implement a medical care services care management pilot project for clients receiving general assistance benefits. The pilot project shall be operated in at least two of the counties with the highest concentration of general assistance clients, and may use a full or partial capitation model. In designing the project, the department shall consult with the mental health division and its managed care contractors that include community and migrant health centers in their provider network. The pilot project shall be designed to maximize care coordination, high-risk medical management, and chronic care management to achieve better health outcomes. The pilot project shall begin enrollment on July 1, 2004.

              (19) Within available resources and to the extent possible, the department shall evaluate and pilot a nurse consultant services program to assist fee-for-service clients in accessing medical information, with the goal of reducing administrative burdens on physicians and unnecessary emergency room utilization.

              (ii) For all other small high schools under this subsection, nine certificated instructional staff units and one-half of a certificated administrative staff unit for the first sixty average annual full time equivalent students, and additional staff units based on a ratio of 0.8732 certificated instructional staff units and 0.1268 certificated administrative staff units per each additional forty-three and one-half average annual full time equivalent students.

              Units calculated under (f)(ii) of this subsection shall be reduced by certificated staff units at the rate of forty-six certificated instructional staff units and four certificated administrative staff units per thousand vocational full-time equivalent students;

              (g) For each nonhigh school district having an enrollment of more than seventy annual average full-time equivalent students and less than one hundred eighty students, operating a grades K-8 program or a grades 1-8 program, an additional one-half of a certificated instructional staff unit; and

              (h) For each nonhigh school district having an enrollment of more than fifty annual average full-time equivalent students and less than one hundred eighty students, operating a grades K-6 program or a grades 1-6 program, an additional one-half of a certificated instructional staff unit.

              (3) Allocations for classified salaries for the 2003-04 and 2004-05 school years shall be calculated using formula-generated classified staff units determined as follows:

              (a) For enrollments generating certificated staff unit allocations under subsection (2)(d) through (h) of this section, one classified staff unit for each three certificated staff units allocated under such subsections;

              (a) The number of certificated staff units determined in subsection (2) of this section; and

              (b) The number of classified staff units determined in subsection (3) of this section multiplied by 1.152. This factor is intended to adjust allocations so that, for the purposes of distributing insurance benefits, full-time equivalent classified employees may be calculated on the basis of 1440 hours of work per year, with no individual employee counted as more than one full-time equivalent.

              (6)(a) For nonemployee-related costs associated with each certificated staff unit allocated under subsection (2)(a), (b), and (d) through (h) of this section, there shall be provided a maximum of $8,785 per certificated staff unit in the 2003-04 school year and a maximum of $8,952 per certificated staff unit in the 2004-05 school year.

              (b) For nonemployee-related costs associated with each vocational certificated staff unit allocated under subsection (2)(c)(i)(A) of this section, there shall be provided a maximum of $21,573 per certificated staff unit in the 2003-04 school year and a maximum of $21,983 per certificated staff unit in the 2004-05 school year.

              (c) For nonemployee-related costs associated with each vocational certificated staff unit allocated under subsection (2)(c)(i)(B) of this section, there shall be provided a maximum of $16,739 per certificated staff unit in the 2003-04 school year and a maximum of $17,057 per certificated staff unit in the 2004-05 school year.

              (7) Allocations for substitute costs for classroom teachers shall be distributed at a maintenance rate of $531.09 for the 2003-04 and 2004-05 school years per allocated classroom teacher exclusive of salary increase amounts, if any, provided in section 504 of this act. Solely for the purposes of this subsection, allocated classroom teachers shall be equal to the number of certificated instructional staff units allocated under subsection (2) of this section, multiplied by the ratio between the number of actual basic education certificated teachers and the number of actual basic education certificated instructional staff reported statewide for the prior school year.

              (8) Any school district board of directors may petition the superintendent of public instruction by submission of a resolution adopted in a public meeting to reduce or delay any portion of its basic education allocation for any school year. The superintendent of public instruction shall approve such reduction or delay if it does not impair the district's financial condition. Any delay shall not be for more than two school years. Any reduction or delay shall have no impact on levy authority pursuant to RCW 84.52.0531 and local effort assistance pursuant to chapter 28A.500 RCW.

              (9) The superintendent may distribute a maximum of $3,190,000 for fiscal year 2004 and a maximum of $3,202,000 during fiscal year 2005 outside the basic education formula as follows:

              (a) For fire protection for school districts located in a fire protection district as now or hereafter established pursuant to chapter 52.04 RCW, a maximum of $495,000 may be expended in fiscal year 2004 and a maximum of $504,000 may be expended in fiscal year 2005; and

              (b) A maximum of $353,000 may be expended for school district emergencies;

              (c) For summer vocational programs at skills centers, a maximum of $2,035,000 may be expended each fiscal year; and

              (d) A maximum of $485,000 for each fiscal year may be expended for programs providing skills training for secondary students who are enrolled in extended day school-to-work programs, as approved by the superintendent of public instruction. The funds shall be allocated at a rate not to exceed $500 per full-time equivalent student enrolled in those programs.

              (10) For purposes of RCW 84.52.0531, the increase per full-time equivalent student is 3.4 percent from the 2002-03 school year to the 2003-04 school year and 2.5 percent from the 2003-04 school year to the 2004-05 school year.

              (11) If two or more school districts consolidate and each district was receiving additional basic education formula staff units pursuant to subsection (2)(b) through (h) of this section, the following shall apply:

              (a) For three school years following consolidation, the number of basic education formula staff units shall not be less than the number of basic education formula staff units received by the districts in the school year prior to the consolidation; and

              (b) For the fourth through eighth school years following consolidation, the difference between the basic education formula staff units received by the districts for the school year prior to consolidation and the basic education formula staff units after consolidation pursuant to subsection (2)(a) through (h) of this section shall be reduced in increments of twenty percent per year.

              (12) $159,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2004 and $1,181,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2005 are provided solely for the implementation of Substitute Senate Bill No. 5012 (charter schools).

              (a) Salary allocations for certificated instructional staff units shall be determined for each district by multiplying the district's certificated instructional total base salary shown on LEAP Document 12E for the appropriate year, by the district's average staff mix factor for certificated instructional staff in that school year, computed using LEAP Document 1Sa for the 2003-04 school year and LEAP Document 1Sb for the 2004-05 school year; and

              (b) Salary allocations for certificated administrative staff units and classified staff units for each district shall be based on the district's certificated administrative and classified salary allocation amounts shown on LEAP Document 12E for the appropriate year.

              (2) For the purposes of this section:

              (a) "LEAP Document 1Sa" means the computerized tabulation establishing staff mix factors for certificated instructional staff for the 2003-04 school year according to education and years of experience, as developed by the legislative evaluation and accountability program committee on March 31, 2003, at 09:06 hours;

              (b) "LEAP Document 1Sb" means the computerized tabulation establishing staff mix factors for certificated instructional staff for the 2004-05 school year according to education and years of experience, as developed by the legislative evaluation and accountability program committee on March 31, 2003, at 09:06 hours; and

              (c) "LEAP Document 12E" means the computerized tabulation of 2003- 04 and 2004-05 school year salary allocations for certificated administrative staff and classified staff and derived and total base salaries for certificated instructional staff as developed by the legislative evaluation and accountability program committee on March 31, 2003, at 09:06 hours.

              (3) Incremental fringe benefit factors shall be applied to salary adjustments at a rate of 8.67 percent for school years 2003-04 and 2004-05 for certificated staff and 9.03 percent for school years 2003- 04 and 2004-05 for classified staff.
