Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: The purpose of this proposal is to repeal two prior chapters of the commission's rules relating to land use permitting. The commission no longer uses these rules to review development applications. The commission is amending one section to require changes to existing land use decisions comply with the current land use ordinance, which is the only land use ordinance that would remain after this proposal. Finally, the commission is repealing its existing public contracting provisions, which are out-of-date, and adopting a new public contracting provision that specifies the commission use Washington's public contracting laws, which is the commission's current practice.
Reasons Supporting Proposal: The rules proposed for repeal are no longer used. These repeals will save more than three hundred pages of printing.

Statute Being Implemented: 16 U.S.C. § 544c(b).
Rule is not necessitated by federal law, federal or state court decision.

No small business economic impact statement has been prepared under chapter 19.85 RCW. Repeal of these rules would not affect small businesses.
A cost-benefit analysis is not required under RCW 34.05.328. The only substantive rule added is reference to Washington statues and is thus exempt under RCW 34.05.328 (5)(b)(iii).

For reasons of efficiency, and to avoid a piecemeal approach to public contracting administration, the Commission shall conduct public contracting in accordance with the public contracting law of the State of Washington. The Commission deems the public contracting law of the State of Washington as a total package to be equivalent in its degree of restrictiveness to the public contracting law of the State of Oregon.
