Subject of Possible Rule Making: SWCAA 425 Outdoor Burning.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 70.94.141.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: This rule regulates outdoor burning, and contains fees for various activities. Southwest Clean Air Agency (SWCAA) is proposing to remove fee citations from the main body of this rule, and incorporate the citations into a separate fee schedule approved via board resolution. This change will allow the agency to review/revise fees by direct board action instead of formal rule making.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: The department of ecology administers a substantially similar rule in areas under its jurisdiction (chapter 173-425 WAC). SWCAA implements SWCAA 425 in its jurisdiction in lieu of chapter 173-425 WAC so no coordination is necessary.
Process for Developing New Rule: Proposed rule revisions are being developed through internal agency review.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Wess Safford, 11815 N.E. 99th Street, Suite 1294, Vancouver, WA 98682, phone (360) 574-3058 ext. 126, e-mail
