EMERGENCY RULES

STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION


[ Filed April 6, 2001, 11:47 a.m. ]

Date of Adoption: March 30, 2001.

Purpose: Repeal current language because: The policy was improperly adopted because the cited authorizing statute is incorrect; the phrase "most current editions" has unintentionally limited access to otherwise available tests; and there is a question whether a policy is necessary.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 180-52-041.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 34.05.310(4).

Under RCW 34.05.350 the agency for good cause finds that immediate adoption, amendment, or repeal of a rule is necessary for the preservation of the public health, safety, or general welfare, and that observing the time requirements of notice and opportunity to comment upon adoption of a permanent rule would be contrary to the public interest.

Reasons for this Finding: Restores home-based instructors' flexibility in the selection of tests.

Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Comply with Federal Statute: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; Federal Rules or Standards: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; or Recently Enacted State Statutes: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.
