WASHINGTON STATE PATROL

Subject of Possible Rule Making: Amends WAC 204-24-030(5).

Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 46.12.330.

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Amending this WAC will eliminate confusion caused by the present wording.

Process for Developing New Rule: Not applicable.

Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Ms. Carol Morton, Washington State Patrol, P.O. Box 42635, Olympia, WA 98504, phone (360) 412-8934, fax (360) 493-9090.
