     Subject of Possible Rule Making: Refunds and exchanges of licensing documents.

     Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 77.12.047.

     Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: There has been an increase in the number of requests for exchange of transport tags. A general review of refunds and exchanges of licensing documents, including but not limited to licenses, permits, tags, stamps and catch record cards, is needed. Current rules need to be consolidated and a comprehensive refund and exchange policy promulgated.

     Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.

     Process for Developing New Rule:      Agency study.

     Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Ron McQueen, Business Program Assistant Director, 600 Capitol Way North, Olympia, WA 98504-1091, phone (360) 902-2204.
