(Developmental Disabilities Administration)
[Filed June 20, 2017, 2:03 p.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: The department is proposing to amend sections within chapter 388-825 WAC, Developmental disabilities administration service rules; and other related rules as may be required.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: Title 71A RCW, Developmental disabilities.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The department is proposing to amend chapter 388-825 WAC and other related rules as may be required to align these rules with amendments being made to chapters 388-71 and 388-113 WAC. During the course of this review, the developmental disabilities administration (DDA) may identify additional changes that are necessary to improve rule clarity and update department policy. These amendments are necessary to reduce the amount of WAC language across programs and help preserve the health and safety of clients.

At a later date, DSHS will file a proposal with the office of the code reviser with a notice of proposed rule making.
