Subject of Possible Rule Making: Withholding services and refunds for outstanding debts.

Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: Chapter 34.05 RCW and RCW 28B.50.140.

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

Process for Developing New Rule: Negotiated rule making.

Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Mary Hansen, Director of Finance, Bellevue Community College, 3000 Landerholm Circle S.E., Bellevue, WA 98007-6484, phone (425) 564-4250, fax (425) 564-4259.
