Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The department is proposing the revised rules above to incorporate legislative changes, to remove outdated language, to ensure consistency with the corresponding statutes in chapter 84.12 RCW, and to more clearly explain and distinguish the annual reports from the apportionment reports, including the required information and filing deadlines.
Specifically, the rules incorporate legislative changes made to RCW 84.12.260 (2007 c 111, § 201 and 1984 c 132, § 2) and to RCW 84.09.030 (2008 c 86 § 501).
