WSR 16-06-125
[Filed March 2, 2016, 10:17 a.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 308-15-150 Fees.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 18.220.040, 18.220.050, and 43.24.086.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The proposed rule change continues suspended fee amounts through June 30, 2017. This program is required to be self supporting and operates out of a dedicated fund. Revenue currently being generated to cover the cost of the program is sufficient with the fee suspension in place. The suspended fees would have a positive impact on new applicants and existing licensees.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.
Process for Developing New Rule: Direct notice will be made to stakeholders and all active licensees under chapter 18.220 RCW. Details will be posted on our web site and distributed through the geologist board listserv.
