EMERGENCY RULES

PUBLIC DISCLOSURE COMMISSION


[ Filed June 29, 2001, 10:22 a.m. ]

Date of Adoption: June 28, 2001.

Purpose: To repeal WAC 390-16-155 Mini campaign reporting -- Exceeding limitations.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 390-16-155.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 42.17.370(1).

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: Repeal of this rule conforms with WAC 390-16-105, eliminates the abbreviated reporting option, and institutes a campaign reporting system having only two options (mini and full reporting). Under the current time requirements of notice and opportunity to comment the permanent adoption of this rule would not take effect until after the 2001 general election (RCW 42.17.370(1)) and would result in confusion as to the responsibilities of persons filing campaign reports.

Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Comply with Federal Statute: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; Federal Rules or Standards: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; or Recently Enacted State Statutes: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted at Request of a Nongovernmental Entity: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted on the Agency's Own Initiative: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 1.

Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Clarify, Streamline, or Reform Agency Procedures: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 1.

Number of Sections Adopted Using Negotiated Rule Making: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; Pilot Rule Making: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; or Other Alternative Rule Making: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 1.
Effective Date of Rule: Immediately.
