No small business economic impact statement has been prepared under chapter 19.85 RCW. The DDD has analyzed the rules and determined that they do not affect small businesses and nonprofits.
A cost-benefit analysis is not required under RCW 34.05.328. These rules are exempt from a cost-benefit analysis pursuant to RCW 34.05. (5)(b)(iii) and (vii) as they adopt Washington state statutes and relate to client medical or financial eligibility.
