Subject of Possible Rule Making: Chapter 296-127 WAC, Motor shop electricians.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: Chapter 39.12 RCW.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The proposed rule is to adopt a new rule as a prevailing wage scope of work description for motor shop electricians. This trade and occupation classification has not previously had any scope of work description but does have published prevailing rates of wage. Prior to 2000, the prevailing wage scope of work descriptions (if any) were promulgated by the industrial statistician on an as needed basis (and not adopted as administrative rule). No scope was promulgated for motor shop electricians.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.
Process for Developing New Rule: The department will develop the rule language with input from the prevailing wage advisory committee and other interested stakeholders. Stakeholders interested in this rule may contact the individual listed below. After the proposed rule is filed, all interested stakeholders can provide written comments and/or testimony during the public hearing and comment period.
