[Filed November 6, 2013, 1:23 p.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 392-121-280 Placement on LEAP salary allocation documents—Documentation required. Finance—General apportionment.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28A.150.290(1) and 28A.415.024.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: These rule revisions expand the documentation allowed to demonstrate equivalency for college degrees and credits completed in a country other than the United States, to include documentation allowed by WAC 181-79A-260. These rule revisions also clarify that degrees and credits completed in a country other than the United States do not require documentation of equivalency if that institution of higher education is already accredited (either regionally accredited or accredited by the distance education and training council).
Process for Developing New Rule: Early solicitation of public comments and recommendations respecting new, amended, or repealed rules, and consideration of the comments and recommendations in the course of drafting rules.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Ross Bunda, (360) 725-6308.
