Title of Rule and Other Identifying Information: Chapter 284-199 WAC, Health insurance market performance data call rules.

NOTICE

THIS RULE IS BEING PROPOSED UNDER AN EXPEDITED RULE-MAKING PROCESS THAT WILL ELIMINATE THE NEED FOR THE AGENCY TO HOLD PUBLIC HEARINGS, PREPARE A SMALL BUSINESS ECONOMIC IMPACT STATEMENT, OR PROVIDE RESPONSES TO THE CRITERIA FOR A SIGNIFICANT LEGISLATIVE RULE. IF YOU OBJECT TO THIS USE OF THE EXPEDITED RULE-MAKING PROCESS, YOU MUST EXPRESS YOUR OBJECTIONS IN WRITING AND THEY MUST BE SENT TO Donna Dorris, Office of the Insurance Commissioner, P.O. Box 40258, Olympia, WA 98504-0255, e-mail Donnad@oic.wa.gov , AND RECEIVED BY July 3, 2012.


Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: This proposed rule will repeal chapter 284-199 WAC, Health insurance market performance data call rules.

Reasons Supporting Proposal: Chapter 172, Laws of 2010, was effective until midnight September 30, 2011. WAC 284-199-0001(3) states that the chapter is effective until midnight September 30, 2011. Expedited repeal is justified because both the RCW and WAC chapters have expired and are no longer in effect, therefore meeting the requirements of RCW 34.05.353 (2)(c).

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 48.02.060, chapter 172, Laws of 2010.
