WSR 14-23-023
[Filed November 10, 2014, 8:51 a.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 196-12-010 Registration requirements and 196-12-050 Waiving the fundamentals-of-engineering examination.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 18.43.035.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Repeal of WAC 196-050 [196-12-050] is needed, as the authority to grant a waiver of the fundamentals-of-engineering examination does not exist in law.
An amendment to WAC 196-010 [196-12-010] is needed to delete language regarding a waiver of the fundamentals-of-engineering examination.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.
Process for Developing New Rule: Draft language of rule amendments will be distributed to the board's list of interested persons (listserv).
