NOTICE

THIS RULE IS BEING PROPOSED UNDER AN EXPEDITED RULE-MAKING PROCESS THAT WILL ELIMINATE THE NEED FOR THE AGENCY TO HOLD PUBLIC HEARINGS, PREPARE A SMALL BUSINESS ECONOMIC IMPACT STATEMENT, OR PROVIDE RESPONSES TO THE CRITERIA FOR A SIGNIFICANT LEGISLATIVE RULE. IF YOU OBJECT TO THIS USE OF THE EXPEDITED RULE-MAKING PROCESS, YOU MUST EXPRESS YOUR OBJECTIONS IN WRITING AND THEY MUST BE SENT TO Rules Coordinator, Department of Social and Health Services, P.O. Box 45850, Olympia, WA 98504-5850, or deliver to Blake Office Park East, 4500 10th Avenue S.E., Lacey, WA 98503, e-mail schilse@dshs.wa.gov, fax (360) 664-6185 , AND RECEIVED BY June 4, 2007.


Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: The department inadvertently omitted repealing WAC 388-535-1265 when replacing this section with WAC 388-535-1271. To correct this oversight, the department is filing an emergency CR-103 to repeal WAC 388-535-1265 effective April 1, 2007. (WAC 388-535-1271, filed on March 1, 2007, under WSR 07-06-041, is effective on April 1, 2007.) The emergency repeal of WAC 388-535-1265 will be in place until a permanent repeal of WAC 388-535-1265 takes effect.

Reasons Supporting Proposal: Repealing this rule is necessary because the replacement rule WAC 388-535-1271, is effective on April 1, 2007.
