Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: The existing statutes governing disclosure of the names of vehicle owners requires that when the owner's name or address is requested by an attorney or by a private investigator the owner must be notified of the request and provided with the name and address of the requester. Effective January 1, 2014, owners will continue receiving notice of the request, but will no longer receive the name and address of the requester.
The department of licensing also requests recodifications of existing rules from chapter 308-56A WAC, Vehicles, to chapter 308-10 WAC.
Reasons Supporting Proposal: Rule changes will adjust language in WAC to fit new language in RCW. We are pursuing recodification to better align agency WAC sections with our organizational structure.

Statute Being Implemented: RCW 46.12.635.
Rule is not necessitated by federal law, federal or state court decision.
Agency Comments or Recommendations, if any, as to Statutory Language, Implementation, Enforcement, and Fiscal Matters: A typographical error in the preproposal statement of inquiry mistakenly referenced RCW 46.12.365 instead of RCW 46.12.635.
