WITHDRAWAL OF
PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY

DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH

STATE BOARD OF HEALTH

[ Filed July 1, 2009, 4:57 p.m. ]

This serves as notice that the department of health and state board of health are withdrawing the CR-101 regarding revising rules for decontamination of illegal drug manufacturing or storage sites filed on December 5, 2007, and published as WSR 07-24-092. The original proposal was to establish certification requirements for independent third party sampling of clandestine drug labs (CDL) and for the conduct of background checks for all certified CDL staff. The proposal was also to consider revising the decontamination standards as appropriate.

The 2009 legislature eliminated funding for the department of health, CDL program. In addition, RCW 64.44.070 was amended to remove the legislative authority to adopt rules relative to independent third party sampling. As a result, no further rule making on this subject can be conducted and the CR-101 must be withdrawn. Please contact Mark Soltman at (360) 236-3366 or mark.soltman@doh.wa.gov if you have any questions about this request.
