Subject of Possible Rule Making: Health professional loan repayment and scholarship program, chapter 250-25 WAC minor technical and administrative changes to align WAC with RCW and codifying current operational practice where necessary.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: Chapters 28B.76, 28B.77, 28B.115 RCW.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Program WAC requires updates and additions to codify existing practice in areas where WAC is no longer accurate or incomplete.
Process for Developing New Rule: Agency study; and the program planning committee as established in RCW 28B.115.050 includes representatives of the state department of health, department of social and health services, appropriate representatives from health care facilities, provider groups, consumers, the state board for community and technical colleges, the office of the superintendent of public instruction, and other appropriate public and private agencies and organizations. Council staff will develop and distribute proposed WAC changes to planning committee members for their review and comment.
