Purpose: The purpose of this rule-making order is to repeal chapter 16-448 WAC, Standards for potatoes, because it is outdated and no longer followed by industry. It has been supplanted by USDA grades and standards for potatoes and is, therefore, redundant. The repeal of chapter 16-448 WAC is a result of the department's ongoing rule review effort under Executive Order 97-02.
