Subject of Possible Rule Making: The Washington state liquor and cannabis board (WSLCB) is considering rule changes in chapter 314-60 WAC, Public records, as a result of upcoming changes to laws from the passage of HB [EHB] 1595 (chapter 304, Laws of 2017) during the 2017 legislative session.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: HB [EHB] 1595 (chapter 304, Laws of 2017) and RCW 34.05.220, 42.56.040, 66.08.030, and 66.08.050.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Rules must be consistent with changes to laws passed by the legislature. Changes to public records rules in chapter 314-60 WAC are needed to adapt rule requirements to changes in the law due to the passage of HB [EHB] 1595 (chapter 304, Laws of 2017) to ensure the proper function of WSLCB's public records division and applicability of charges for requested records when appropriate. WSLCB will do a review of chapter 314-60 WAC in conjunction with this rule making and make other clarifying and technical changes as necessary.
Process for Developing New Rule: Interested parties can participate in the discussions formulating this rule change by contacting or sending written comments to the agency staff listed below.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Joanna Eide, Policy and Rules Coordinator, P.O. Box 43080, Olympia, WA 98504-3080,, (360) 664-1622, fax (360) 664-9689.
