PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 308-105-100, updating fee for the enhanced driver's license and enhanced identicard.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 46.01.110 and 46.20.202.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: ESSB 6150 (2012) authorized the department to transition from a five-year driver's license and identicard renewal cycle to a six-year cycle. The bill prorated statutory driver's license and identicard fees accordingly. Under RCW 46.20.202(4), the additional fee for enhanced driver's licenses (EDL) and enhanced identicards (EID) are set by rule of the department. The department intends to amend WAC 308-105-100 to prorate the EDL and EID fee to match the new renewal cycle.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.
Process for Developing New Rule: Internal review and input from interested parties.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Clark J. Holloway, Department of Licensing, P.O. Box 9020, Olympia, WA 98507-9020, (360) 902-3846, firstname.lastname@example.org.
