Original Notice.

Preproposal statement of inquiry was filed as WSR 97-15-141 and 97-15-142.

Title of Rule: Workers' compensation classification plan, chapters 296-17 and 296-14 WAC.

Purpose: Agency proposes to revise general reporting rules, classification plan, and corresponding base insurance rate tables. This includes creating thirty-two general rules, repealing twenty-six general rules, creating three new risk classifications, repealing one risk classification, amending three hundred fourteen risk classifications, and amending two experience rating rules applicable to chapter 296-17 WAC for workers' compensation insurance underwritten by the Department of Labor and Industries. The agency also proposes to repeal two claim process rules applicable to chapter 296-14 WAC for workers' compensation insurance.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 51.16.035.

Statute Being Implemented: RCW 51.16.035.

Summary: The department proposes to create thirty-two new general reporting rules, repeal twenty-six general reporting rules, create three new risk classification definitions, repeal one risk classification definition, amend three hundred fourteen risk classification definitions, and amend two experience rating and base insurance rate tables applicable to chapter 296-17 WAC. The department also proposes to repeal two claim process rules applicable to chapter 296-14 WAC.

Reasons Supporting Proposal: RCW 51.16.035 requires the department to maintain actuarial solvency of the industrial insurance funds and maintain a classification plan. Adjustments to the classification and rating plan reflect changes in Washington industries.

Name of Proponent: Department of Labor and Industries, governmental.

Rule is not necessitated by federal law, federal or state court decision.

Explanation of Rule, its Purpose, and Anticipated Effects: The department is required by RCW 51.16.035 to establish and maintain a workers' compensation insurance classification plan that classifies all occupations or industries within the state, and to set basic rates of premium for all classifications. The rule proposals are intended to better clarify the general reporting rules, to distribute the costs fairly among employers, and to ensure actuarial solvency.

The department proposes to revise general reporting rules, classification plan, and corresponding base insurance rate tables. This includes creating thirty-two general reporting rules, repealing twenty-six general reporting rules, creating three new risk classifications, repealing one risk classification, amending three hundred fourteen risk classifications, and amending two experience rating rules applicable to chapter 296-17 WAC for workers' compensation insurance underwritten by the Department of Labor and Industries. The department also proposes to repeal two claim process rules applicable to chapter 296-14 WAC for workers' compensation insurance.

The department is proposing numerous changes to the general reporting rules and classification plan in order to rewrite many of the rules in clear rule writing and to provide greater detail for risk classification definitions; repeal one classification for chore services/domestic servants and create a separate risk classification and base rate for each due to the dissimilar of services and claim costs; create one classification for energy services and base rate; and repeal two claim process rules which are obsolete.

No small business economic impact statement has been prepared under chapter 19.85 RCW. The Regulatory Fairness Act requires that the economic impact of proposed regulations be analyzed in relation to small business, and outlines the information that must be included in a small business economic impact statement (SBEIS). Preparation of a SBEIS is required when a proposed rule has the potential of placing a more than minor economic impact on business. However, since the proposed rule would not place a more than minor economic impact on business, the preparation of a comprehensive SBEIS is not required.

RCW 34.05.328 applies to this rule adoption. RCW 51.16.035 requires the Department of Labor and Industries to establish a classification plan to include general classification rules, risk classifications, and premium rates for all classification in accordance with recognized principles of insurance.

Although the rule proposal would be considered "significant," as defined by statute, the department is exempted from preparing an Evaluation of Probable Costs and Probable Benefits Analysis as mandated in RCW 34.05.328(1)[(c)]. RCW 34.05.328(5)(b)(vi) establishes that rules that set or adjust fees or rates pursuant to legislative standards are exempt from the criteria outlined in RCW 34.05.328.

Hearing Location: Labor and Industries, Auditorium, 7273 Linderson Way S.W., Tumwater, WA, on July 9, at 10 a.m.

Assistance for Persons with Disabilities: Contact Classification Services, (360) 902-4776, by July 9, 1998, TDD (360) 902-4776.

Submit Written Comments to: FAX (360) 902-4729, by July 9, 1998.

Date of Intended Adoption: August 28, 1998.
