PERMANENT RULES

DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE


[ Filed December 5, 2007, 9:24 a.m. , effective January 5, 2008 ]


Effective Date of Rule: Thirty-one days after filing.

Purpose: In WAC 16-303-230 under the category "For all other kinds" the fee amount for a standard sampling was inadvertently lowered from $0.15 per cwt to $0.018 per cwt. when it was intended to be raised to $0.18 per cwt. From March 1, 2007, to October 12, 2007, the Washington state department of agriculture worked with affected industry to modify its seed program fee schedules. The modifications realign certain fees to correspond to the amount of time necessary to render a particular service. To that end, some fees were raised, some were lowered. During the process, minutes were taken regarding the proposed level of fees to be assessed. However, the draft language requested from the office of the code reviser contained a typographical error that went unnoticed. With this filing, the typographical error is corrected.
