Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 41.05.021, 74.04.050, 74.08.090, 74.09.035, 74.09.530; Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act established under Public Law 111-148; 42 C.F.R. § 431, 435, and 457, and at 45 C.F.R. § 155.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The legislature did not appropriate any funds for the Alcohol and Drug Addiction Treatment and Support Act (ADATSA) in the new biennium budget.
