WSR 03-14-016

WITHDRAWAL OF PROPOSED RULES

DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH


[ Filed June 19, 2003, 3:46 p.m. ]

The department is withdrawing the CR-102 for WAC 246-320-010 and 246-320-370 which were filed June 4, 2003, and published in WSR 94-09-041 [03-12-090]. The original proposal was to develop a rule for hospitals that provide emergency care to victims of sexual assault to provide the victim with written and oral information about emergency contraception, inform victims of the option to be provided emergency contraception, and to provide emergency contraception immediately if requested by the victim. Since the filing of WSR 03-12-090, the department has been informed of potential unanticipated controversy. The department would like additional time to work in cooperation with stakeholders to resolve issues before continuing with the formal rule-making process. For this reason, the CR-102 for WAC 246-320-010 and 246-320-370 is no longer needed.

Individuals requiring information on this rule should contact Yvette Harrison, Rules Coordinator, Facilities and Services Licensing, at (360) 236-2928 or yvette.Harrison@doh.wa.gov.
