SOCIAL AND HEALTH SERVICES
(Aging and Disability Services Administration)
Effective Date of Rule: Immediately.
Purpose: The division of developmental disabilities is proposing this emergency rule to amend WAC 388-828-5080 to be consistent with the DDD assessment application.
Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Amending WAC 388-828-5080.
Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 71A.12.30 [71A.12.030].
Other Authority: Title 71A RCW.
Under RCW 34.05.350 the agency for good cause finds that immediate adoption, amendment, or repeal of a rule is necessary for the preservation of the public health, safety, or general welfare, and that observing the time requirements of notice and opportunity to comment upon adoption of a permanent rule would be contrary to the public interest.
Reasons for this Finding: This emergency rule will amend WAC 388-828-5080 to accurately reflect the protective supervision age-based score adjustment made by the DDD assessment application when determining the protective supervision support level. The DDD assessment application is correctly calculating the protective supervision support level. Without this rule, clients may incorrectly be found eligible or ineligible for services or benefits.
This emergency rule replaces the previous emergency rule filed on October 24, 2007, as WSR 07-21-145.
The department filed a preproposal statement of inquiry (WSR 07-15-081) on July 18, 2007, to make amendments, clarifications and corrections necessary to chapter 388-828 WAC. This rule was formally proposed on February 15, 2008, as WSR 08-05-097.
