Subject of Possible Rule Making: The recreation and conservation funding board will consider amendments to Title 286 WAC to clarify grant program requirements and consolidate sections.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 34.05.220, 42.56.040, 46.09.530, 79A.15.030, 79A.15.060, 79A.15.070, 79A.15.120, 79A.15.130, 79A.25.210.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The reason for this proposal is to clarify grant program requirements. The amendments will add definitions and requirements for "project area." The amendments will also consolidate grant program related chapters into one new section that applies to any grant program.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: No other federal or state agencies regulate grant funding programs administered by the board and office.
Process for Developing New Rule: The recreation and conservation funding board will follow the standard process for the adoption of rules under the Administrative Procedure Act, chapter 34.05 RCW.
