Subject of Possible Rule Making: SWCAA 492 Oxygenated Fuels.
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 establishes a program to reduce carbon monoxide emissions from gasoline powered motor vehicles, through the wintertime use of oxygenated gasolines. The rule contains a registration fee for gasoline blenders. Southwest Clean Air Agency (SWCAA) is proposing to remove the registration fee from the main body of this rule, and incorporate it into a separate fee schedule approved via board resolution. This change will allow the agency to review/revise the registration fee 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: SWCAA 492 is a local rule implemented only within SWCAA's jurisdiction. No coordination with other agencies 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
