PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
Subject of Possible Rule Making: Administration of breath alcohol test.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 46.61.506.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Changes to RCW 46.61.506 have made sections of the current chapter 448-13 WAC redundant. The state toxicologist is contemplating significant amendments to the rules, repealing many obsolete and redundant provisions, and moving others from the Washington Administrative Code to agency policy and procedures.
Process for Developing New Rule: Pilot rule making.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Barry K. Logan, Ph.D., DABFT, Washington State Toxicologist, 2203 Airport Way South, Suite 360, Seattle, WA 98134, (206) 262-6000.
