The Following Sections are Proposed for Expedited Repeal: WAC 458-50-010 Assessment of public utilities--Purpose--Definitions and 458-50-050 Access to books, records, and property.
Rules Proposed for Expedited Repeal Meet the Following Criteria: Rule is no longer necessary because of changed circumstances.
Any person who objects to the repeal of the rule must file a written objection to the repeal within thirty days after publication of this preproposal statement of inquiry.
Address Your Objection to: Alan R. Lynn, Department of Revenue, Legislation and Policy Division, P.O. Box 47467, Olympia, WA 98504-7467, fax (360) 664-0693.
Reason the Expedited Repeal of the Rule is Appropriate: These rules do not provide any pertinent information that is not already provided in the statutes.
WAC 458-50-010 does not provide any important information regarding the valuation and apportionment of the operating property of public utilities, which is the subject of chapter 458-50 WAC. The information provided by WAC 458-50-050 is less complete and accurate than the information provided in RCW 84.12.240, the statute that this rule implements.
