[ Filed March 26, 2003, 9:00 a.m. ]

Original Notice.

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

Title of Rule: Bellevue Community College calendar.

Purpose: Repeals the existing WAC that describes how the Bellevue Community College calendar is annually determined.

Other Identifying Information: WAC 132H-132-010 and 132H-132-020.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 28B.50.140.

Summary: The Bellevue Community College annual calendar is now determined during the faculty negotiation process rather than by the method identified in chapter 132H-132 WAC. Repealing this chapter removes the conflict between process and practice.

Reasons Supporting Proposal: The calendar relates to internal organizational operations and is not subject to violation by anyone outside of the organization. The faculty contract takes precedence over other rules and it is inappropriate to have conflicting rules relating to this issue.

Name of Agency Personnel Responsible for Drafting, Implementation and Enforcement: Lucy Macneil, 3000 Landerholm Circle S.E., A101, Bellevue, WA 98007, (425) 564-2445.

Name of Proponent: Bellevue Community College, public.

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

Explanation of Rule, its Purpose, and Anticipated Effects: Repealing the WAC identifying how the college calendar is developed will eliminate the current conflict between the rule in this WAC and the current practice of negotiating the calendar during faculty negotiations.

Proposal Changes the Following Existing Rules: The proposal eliminates chapter 132H-132 WAC.

No small business economic impact statement has been prepared under chapter 19.85 RCW. This rule does not impact small business.

RCW 34.05.328 does not apply to this rule adoption.

Hearing Location: Bellevue Community College, 3000 Landerholm Circle S.E., A101, Bellevue, WA 98007-6484, on May 6, 2003, at 9:00 a.m.

Assistance for Persons with Disabilities: Contact Susan Gjomesli by May 6, 2003, TDD (425) 564-4110 or (425) 564-2498.
