PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY

DEPARTMENT OF LICENSING

(Board of Registration for Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors)

[Filed January 6, 1999, 11:06 a.m.]



Subject of Possible Rule Making: Amendment of WAC 196-25-040 Provisions pertaining to both corporations and limited liability companies.

Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 18.43.035.

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: After this rule was implemented in 1998, it was found that the business license requested in subsection (7) for renewal, did not show all of the information needed for the board to renew an organization's certificate of authorization to practice. The subsection will be rewritten to request a document showing that the organization has been renewed by authority of the secretary of state and that the expiration date is current.

Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.

Process for Developing New Rule: Agency study.

Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Rick Notestine, Program Director, P.O. Box 9649, Olympia, WA 98507-9649, fax (360) 664-2551, phone (360) 586-7298.

Persons may comment by mail or phone as noted. Draft language of any proposed changes will be distributed at the mailing of the CR-102 in approximately thirty days after the filing of this notice. Distribution of the rule filings is made to our rule-making mailing list.
