PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
Subject of Possible Rule Making: Amendment to WAC 446-20-630 Department of social and health services -- Child care licensing -- Fees.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 43.43.830 - 43.43.845.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: This amendment will change the fees for background checks to coincide with our amendment proposal for WAC 446-20-600 Fees. The amendment to WAC 446-20-630 will also reduce the number of fingerprint cards being submitted to the Washington State Patrol (WSP) from two to one. Currently only one fingerprint card is required for processing. WSP sends the fingerprints electronically to the FBI.
