Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 468-38-120 Transport of extra-legal manufactured housing, revision of the rule is to add language indicating that modular homes would be treated the same as manufactured homes when referring to overheight when escort cars are required.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 46.44.090, 46.44.093.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The proposal would allow modular homes being moved on the highway [to] be treated the same as manufactured homes when determining the escort requirement for height. The construction and design of the two types of structures are similar but are transported in different ways.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: The WAC is enforced by the Washington state patrol, so was included in the development of this proposal.
Process for Developing New Rule: Negotiated rule making.
