WSR 05-24-121



[ Filed December 7, 2005, 9:40 a.m. , effective January 9, 2006 ]

Purpose: The reason for the fee increase is to pay the fees established by Washington State Patrol and the Federal Bureau of Investigation for conducting background searches in order to comply with the Federal Anti-Terrorism and Prevention Act. The act requires that security guard licensees and applicants must submit a fingerprint card for a background check. The rule change will:

(1) Increase renewal fees for one year to pay for background searches.

(2) Increase the original application fee to pay for the additional required background search.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Amending WAC 308-18-150.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: Private security guards, chapter 18.170 RCW.

Other Authority: Federal Anti-Terrorism and Prevention Act 2004.

Adopted under notice filed as WSR 05-22-014 on October 24, 2005.

Changes Other than Editing from Proposed to Adopted Version: The difference between the CR-102 and CR-103 is that the armed license fees were inadvertently omitted from the fee list when the CR-102 was filed. These fees are not new fees and are not fees that have been changed. These fees have been put back on the list of fees in WAC 308-18-150.
