PARKS AND RECREATION

COMMISSION

[ Filed August 2, 2004, 11:52 a.m. ]

Subject of Possible Rule Making: Chapter 352-32 WAC, Public use of state park areas.

Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 79A.05.030, 79A.05.035, 79A.05.055, and 79A.05.070.

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The state Parks and Recreation Commission will conduct its annual review of this chapter to ensure the language and provisions reflect current or proposed changes to the agency's business practices and to help ensure that park visitors have easy access and understanding for the information they seek in this chapter. The commission will consider eliminating the off season pass program as established in WAC 352-32-252. Staff will also review these rules with the Office of the Administrator of the Courts to correct and clarify associated penalties. Other changes or revisions in this chapter may be proposed as a result of the annual by staff in consultation with park visitors and user groups.

Process for Developing New Rule: Agency study.
