WSR 97-20-072



[Filed September 26, 1997, 9:45 a.m.]

The Following Sections are Proposed for Expedited Repeal: Chapter 204-56 WAC, Procedures for measuring motor vehicle sound levels.

Rules Proposed for Expedited Repeal Meet the Following Criteria: Rule is no longer necessary because of changed circumstances.

Any person who objects to the repeal of the rule must file a written objection to the repeal within thirty days after publication of this preproposal statement of inquiry.

Address Your Objection to: Carol Morton, 4242 Martin Way, Olympia, WA 98504-2635, phone (360) 412-8934, FAX (360) 493-9090.

Reason the Expedited Repeal of the Rule is Appropriate: The Washington State Patrol no longer performs this task. Sound level instruments were turned over to the Department of Ecology approximately eight years ago. The noise level for vehicles was also turned over to the Department of Ecology. The WAC is obsolete.
