[Filed July 16, 2015, 3:57 p.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: Private security guard background check fees itemized separately from license application fees.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: Private security guard laws, RCW 18.170.180(1).
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Washington state patrol and Federal Bureau of Investigation each charge different fees for the required security guard applicant background check. These fees are currently a part of the whole security guard application fee. Frequently, Washington state patrol and Federal Bureau of Investigation change fees resulting in the security guard program to over or under collect the cost for the background check. Changing the rule will allow the security guard program to collect accurate background check fees.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.
Process for Developing New Rule: Stakeholder involvement.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting the Department of Licensing, Business and Professions Division, Private Security Guard Program, Mary Haglund, P.O.
