WSR 13-10-039




[ Filed April 25, 2013, 12:19 p.m. ]

     Subject of Possible Rule Making: The language of WAC 139-10-210 is inconsistent with that in RCW 43.101.220. RCW 43.101.220 mandates all corrections personnel to attend basic academy training; WAC 139-10-210 mandates only full-time corrections employees.

     Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 43.101.080.

     Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Due to the inconsistency in wording there is confusion as to who is actually required to attend the basic corrections training. The proposed changes to WAC 139-10-210 will provide clarity, as it will mirror the language of RCW 43.101.220.

     Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: The Washington state criminal justice training commission (WSCJTC) regulates this process.

     Process for Developing New Rule:       Negotiated rule making.

     Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Sonja Hirsch, Rules Coordinator, WSCJTC, 19010 1st Avenue South, Burien, WA 98148, e-mail, phone (206) 835-7372; or Pam Clark, Corrections Commander, e-mail, phone (206) 835-7306. Commissioners will be advised of the proposed rule changes via e-mail. Proposed changes will also be listed on the agency web site.
