PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
The department is withdrawing the CR-101 for chapter 246-491 WAC which was filed on March 29, 2007, and published in WSR 07-08-051. The original proposal was to develop a procedure for approving death certificates that were filed electronically using the electronic death registration system (EDRS). Since the filing of WSR 07-08-051, legislation was passed (HB 1515, chapter 231, Laws of 2009) that achieved this same goal. For this reason, the CR-101 for chapter 246-491 WAC is no longer needed.
Individuals requiring information on this rule should contact Philip Freeman, deputy state registrar at (360) 236-4340.
