PERMANENT RULES

DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH


(Dental Hygiene)

[ Filed December 2, 2004, 1:05 p.m. , effective March 22, 2005 ]


Purpose: With the passage of legislation, chapter 262, Laws of 2004 (ESSB 6554 Barriers to credentialing), this requires a change to WAC 246-815-990 to change "temporary" to "limited." As the limited license is renewable, the rule needs to be changed to allow the Department of Health to charge fees for the limited license and the renewed limited license. This bill reduces barriers to licensing, allowing more applicants to become licensed in Washington state.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Amending WAC 246-815-990.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 43.70.250.

Adopted under notice filed as WSR 04-18-093 on September 1, 2004.
