Removal of Obsolete Rules from Washington Administrative Code: Chapter 16-512 WAC

I am the Assistant Attorney General assigned to represent the former Washington State Fryer Commission. The Fryer Commission was created under chapter 15.66 RCW by a marketing order formerly contained in WAC 16-512-005 to WAC 16-512-070. The marketing order that created the former Fryer Commission was repealed effective June 14, 2010 in WSR 10-11-066. However, rules adopted by the former Fryer Commission remain in chapter 16-512 WAC, at sections WAC 16-512-101 to WAC 16-512-120.

RCW 34.05.210 (6)(b) provides that with the consent of the attorney general, the Code Reviser may remove obsolete rules or parts of rules from the Washington Administrative Code when the adopting agency ceases to exist and the rules are not transferred by statute to a successor agency. The adopting agency (the Fryer Commission) has ceased to exist and the rules of the former Fryer Commission were not transferred to a successor agency.

This letter hereby requests that the Code Reviser remove the obsolete rules of the former Fryer Commission from the Washington Administrative Code. Those sections are:

WAC 16-512-101

WAC 16-512-110

WAC 16-512-120

If you have any questions regarding this matter, do not hesitate to contact me.

Kristen K. Mitchell

Assistant Attorney General
