[Filed May 24, 2017, 11:14 a.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: Chapter 392-105 WAC, Access to public records.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: Chapter 42.56 RCW; EHB 1595 (2017).
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: In 2017, EHB 1595 authorized the office of superintendent of public instruction (OSPI), along with other Washington state agencies, to charge for the copying and transmission of certain public records, including records stored in an electronic format. Under EHB 1595, these fees must be identified in agency rules or following an opportunity for notice and comment. OSPI is considering adopting fees under EHB 1595 and making additional changes to its public records rules in chapter 392-105 WAC, including technical revisions.
Process for Developing New Rule: Early solicitation of public comments and recommendations respecting new, amended, or repealed rules, and consideration of the comments and recommendations in the course of drafting rules.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Mike Brown, Privacy and Records Governance Manager,, (360) 725-6372.
