Subject of Possible Rule Making: The department is amending and adding new sections in chapter 388-106 WAC, Long-term care services, and other related rules as may be required.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 74.08.090, 74.09.520.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The department is amending and adding new sections to chapter 388-106 WAC, the volunteer chore program, as it was changed to volunteer services per ESSB 6444. The intent in the name change was to broaden the types of assistance available to eligible clients. Other necessary changes that arise during this rule making may be incorporated. Other WAC chapters may also be updated as a result of this rule making.
Process for Developing New Rule: DSHS welcomes the public to take part in developing the rules. Anyone interested should contact the staff person identified below. At a later date, DSHS will file a proposal with the office of the code reviser with a notice of proposed rule making. A copy of the proposal will be sent to everyone on the mailing list and to anyone who requests a copy.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Angel Sulivan, P.O. Box 45600, Olympia, WA 98504-5600, phone (360) 725-2495, fax (360) 407-7582, TTY (360) 493-2637, e-mail
