Subject of Possible Rule Making: K-12 study elimination.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 48.02.060, 48.02.210.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: HB 1042 (2017) repeals RCW 48.02.210 and 48.62.181 as well as amending RCW 28A.400.275 to remove references to an annual report of school district employee health insurance benefits by the office of the insurance commissioner (OIC).
