DEPARTMENT OF ECOLOGY


[ Order 00-22 -- Filed September 5, 2000, 10:48 a.m. ]

The Following Sections are Proposed for Expedited Repeal: WAC 173-09-010 Authority and purpose, 173-09-020 Definitions, 173-09-030 Designation of a coordinating permit agency, and 173-09-040 Brief adjudicative proceedings -- Expedited appeal of coordinated permit process timelines.

Rules Proposed for Expedited Repeal Meet the Following Criteria: Statute on which the rule was based has been repealed and has not been replaced by another statute providing statutory authority for the rule.

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: Jerry Thielen, Rules Coordinator, Department of Ecology, P.O. Box 47600, Olympia, WA 98504-7600.

Reason the Expedited Repeal of the Rule is Appropriate: Chapter 173-09 WAC necessitates repeal because the state statute on which chapter 173-09 WAC was based (i.e., chapter 90.60 RCW, Environmental Permit Assistance Act) was repealed June 30, 2000, per the provisions of RCW 43.131.388.
