[ Filed August 19, 2008, 10:26 a.m. , effective September 19, 2008 ]


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

Purpose: Chapter 296-127 WAC, Prevailing wage, the purpose of this rule making is to update the filing fees for intents and affidavits. The legislature increased the filing fees from $25 to $40 during the 2008 legislative session. The rule making will remove the $25 filing fee from the rule. The filing fees for prevailing wage intents and affidavits will be removed from the rule. The rules will have a reference to RCW 39.12.070, which clearly states the current fee set by the legislature. This will prevent the program from having to conduct rule making every time a fee change occurs.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: Chapter 39.12 RCW, RCW 43.22.270, and chapter 285, Laws of 2008 (EHB 3381).
