Subject of Possible Rule Making: The university is adding health and safety regulations for Washington State University (WSU) Pullman, new chapter 504-38 WAC.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28B.30.150.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: WSU is adding health and safety policy and regulations for WSU Pullman. WSU seeks a tobacco-free campus to include all campus grounds, state-owned vehicles, and equipment at Pullman. This will be in addition to the WSU Spokane and WSU Vancouver campuses that are already tobacco-free. The Washington Clean Indoor Act currently prohibits smoking in public buildings and places of employment, as well as within twenty-five feet of doors, windows, and ventilation intakes.
Process for Developing New Rule: Reviewed internally at many levels before proposal.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Ralph T. Jenks, Director, Office of Procedures, Records, and Forms and University Rules Coordinator, P.O.

There will be an opportunity to provide written comments to the proposed rules.
