PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY

WASHINGTON STATE PATROL


[ Filed May 8, 2002, 10:44 a.m. ]

Subject of Possible Rule Making: Chapter 204-95 WAC is being amended to correct the use of the commercial vehicle safety alliance (CVSA) decal. The decal was not intended for limousines.

Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 46.37.005.

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The CVSA decal was not intended for use on a limousine. It is intended for commercial trucks having to comply with all the rules and regulations in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMVSR) Handbook. Limousines are not required to meet all the rules associated with the FMVSR. This amendment will keep WSP in compliance with the rules governing the use of the CVSA decal.

Process for Developing New Rule: Agency study; and received written input from CVEOs in the department, the Department of Licensing and verbal input from the Limousine Law Workgroup.

Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Ms. Christine M. Fox, Washington State Patrol, Equipment and Standards Review Unit Manager, P.O. Box 42614, Olympia, WA 98504, cfox@wsp.wa.gov, phone (360) 753-3697, fax (360) 586-8233.
