[ Filed June 11, 2012, 2:50 p.m. , effective July 12, 2012 ]


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

Purpose: The purpose of this rule-making order is to repeal chapter 16-05 WAC. The stated purpose of the chapter is to establish procedures for fulfilling the department's requirements under RCW 43.05.020 to compile and maintain lists of individuals and organizations providing technical assistance. Chapter 43.05 RCW does not require rule making and a rule is not the most appropriate way to provide information regarding technical assistance providers. Therefore, chapter 16-05 WAC should be repealed.
