[Filed October 1, 2014, 9:35 a.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: Amend WAC 458-30-200 Definitions and repeal WAC 458-30-210 Classification of land under chapter 84.34 RCW.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 84.34.141 Rules and regulations.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: WAC 458-30-200 and 458-30-210 provide definitions used in the administration of chapter 458-30 WAC. Amending WAC 458-30-200 will clarify and update definitions the department and the county assessor offices use when administering the current use program under chapter 84.34 RCW. Additionally, the department believes that the definitions found in WAC 458-30-210 can be incorporated into the definitions in WAC 458-30-200 to improve the entire chapter.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.
