Current Rule Making: The ELUHO anticipates adopting proposed public records rules at its January 10, 2012, meeting. See WSR 11-22-091.

The ELUHO is also in the process of repealing chapters 198-12 and 242-04 WAC, which are the existing public records rules for the prior agency environmental hearings office and the growth management hearings boards; amending WAC 371-08-320, 371-08-325 and 198-09-010, to correct the agency address and name, and to correct outdated internal citations within the rules, and correcting typographical errors in chapter 242-03 WAC. See WSR 11-22-090.

Anticipated Rule Making:

1. Due to the governor's executive order, the ELUHO, on behalf of the pollution control hearings board, has decided to postpone addressing the question of the appropriate standards and process for issuance of temporary suspensions or discontinuances in forest practices appeals through rule making. WAC 223-08-087 will remain in effect in the interim and will control the issuance of temporary suspensions or discontinuances in forest practices appeals.

2. During the next six months, the ELUHO, on behalf of the shoreline hearings board, anticipates amending chapter 461-08 WAC as necessary to make it consistent with amendments to the Shoreline Management Act. Some sections of the rules also need to be updated to reflect the agency's new name and address.
