Subject of Possible Rule Making: Fees for public records.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 42.56.100.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: This rule is necessary to implement changes to the Public Records Act relating to charging fees for public records and contained in RCW 42.56.120(2), as amended by section 3, chapter 304, Laws of 2017. Without this change to its public records rules (chapter 250-82 WAC), the agency will be unable to charge requesters for the cost of producing requested public records.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.
Process for Developing New Rule: Agency study.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by sending comments to the agency's public records officer, Donald G. Alexander, Director of Financial and Business Services, Washington Student Achievement Council, 917 Lakeridge Way S.W., Olympia, WA 98504-3430, or
