Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 392-123-165 Contractual liability extending beyond end of fiscal year.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28A.150.290(1).
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Language in WAC 392-123-165 conficts [conflicts] with RCW 28A.335.170. The RCW states: "To rent or lease building space and portable buildings for periods not exceeding ten years in duration." The WAC states: "for periods not exceeding five years in duration." The rule change modifies the WAC to align with similar language in the RCW.
Language in WAC 392-123-165 should be edited to align with RCW 28A.335.170.
Process for Developing New Rule: Early solicitation of public comments and recommendations respecting new, amended, or repealed rules, and consideration of the comments and recommendations in the course of drafting rules.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 Paul Stone, Supervisor SD/ESD Accounting, Old Capitol Building, P.O. Box 47200, Olympia, WA 98504-7200, (360) 725-6303.
