Subject of Possible Rule Making: Eastern Washington University (EWU) plans to amend chapter 172-10 WAC, Costs of providing copies of public records. This rule will allow EWU to charge for copies of records pursuant to the default schedule as outlined in the Public Records Act.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28B.35.120(12) and chapter 34.05 RCW.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: EWU is proposing to amend WAC 172-10-080 for the following reasons:
To comply with HB [ESHB] 1594 and [EHB] 1595 it is necessary to update this code;
It is unduly burdensome for EWU to calculate actual costs for copying records to fulfill public records requests; and
Pursuant to RCW 45.56.120 [42.56.120] (2)(b), these changes will allow EWU to reimburse the university the costs associated with fulfilling its duties under the Public Records Act.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.
Process for Developing New Rule: Negotiated rule making.
