(Aging and Adult Services Administration)

[ Filed September 9, 2002, 3:44 p.m. ]

Original Notice.

Exempt from preproposal statement of inquiry under RCW 34.05.310(4).

Title of Rule: WAC 388-71-0440 Am I eligible for MPC-funded services?

Purpose: This amended WAC was mistakenly left out of the filing packet for the revisions of chapters 388-15, 388-71, and 388-110 WAC filed as WSR 02-04-096. This change to WAC 388-71-0440 is only to correct a WAC cross reference with no effect to the content of the rule. Proposed rules filed as WSR 02-04-096, when adopted, will make the WAC cross reference to WAC 388-15-202 obsolete.

Other Identifying Information: This proposed rule-making notice is being filed without prior filing of a CR-101 preproposal statement of inquiry. A CR-101 notice is not required for proposed rules that "only correct typographical errors, make address or name changes, or clarify language of a rule without changing its effect." RCW 34.05.310 (4)(d).

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 74.08.090, 74.09.520, and 74.39A.090.

Statute Being Implemented: RCW 74.39A.090.

Summary: See Purpose above.

Name of Agency Personnel Responsible for Drafting, Implementation and Enforcement: Kristi Olson, AASA, 640 Woodland Square Loop, P.O. Box 45600, Olympia, WA 98505 [98504]-5600, (360) 725-2537.

Name of Proponent: Department of Social and Health Services, governmental.

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

Explanation of Rule, its Purpose, and Anticipated Effects: See Purpose above.

Proposal does not change existing rules. These proposed rules update cross references within WAC 388-71-0440.

No small business economic impact statement has been prepared under chapter 19.85 RCW. The proposed rule only corrects an obsolete WAC cross reference and therefore will not impact small businesses.

RCW 34.05.328 does not apply to this rule adoption. Rules do not meet the definition of a significant legislative rule, and are exempt under RCW 34.05.328 (5)(b)(iv) "Rules that only correct typographical errors, make address or name changes, or clarify language of a rule without changing its effect."

Hearing Location: Office Building 2 Auditorium (DSHS Headquarters) (Parking off 11th and Jefferson), 1115 Washington, Olympia, WA 98504, on October 22, 2002, at 10:00 a.m.
