Original Notice.

Preproposal statement of inquiry was filed as WSR 98-19-044.

Title of Rule: WAC 4-25-511 Confidential information and 4-25-920 Hearings by the board.

Purpose: Repeal sections of chapter 4-25 WAC.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 18.04.055.

Statute Being Implemented: RCW 18.04.055(1).

Summary: Repeal sections of chapter 4-25 WAC.

Reasons Supporting Proposal: The Attorney General's Office identified these two rules as repetitive and unnecessary. WAC 4-25-511 is a duplication of statute. WAC 4-25-920 is a duplication of statutorily defined administrative procedures the agency is required to follow.

Name of Agency Personnel Responsible for Drafting, Implementation and Enforcement: Dana M. McInturff, CPA, 210 East Union, Suite A, Olympia, (360) 664-9194.

Name of Proponent: Board of Accountancy, governmental.

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

Explanation of Rule, its Purpose, and Anticipated Effects: Statute governs the same activities as these rules, making the rules redundant. The Attorney General's Office recommends the agency repeal these repetitive and unnecessary rules.

Proposal does not change existing rules.

No small business economic impact statement has been prepared under chapter 19.85 RCW. The repeal of these rules will not have more than minor economic impact on business.

RCW 34.05.328 does not apply to this rule adoption. The Board of Accountancy is not one of the agencies required to submit to the requirements of RCW 34.05.328.

Hearing Location: Conference Room, Deloitte & Touche LLP, 700 5th Avenue, Suite 4500, Seattle, on December 18, 1998, at 9:30 a.m.
