Subject of Possible Rule Making: The department is proposing to amend WAC 388-14A-4505, 388-14A-4510, and other related rules as may be required in order to implement ESHB 1814 (chapter 269, Laws of 2017), which takes effect on July 23, 2017.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 26.23.030, 34.05.220 (1)(a), 34.05.322, 34.05.350 (1)(a) and (b), 74.04.055, 74.08.090, 74.20.040(9), 74.20A.310, 74.20A.328.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: ESHB 1814 (chapter 269, Laws of 2017), which takes effect on July 23, 2017, amended RCW 74.20A.320 to change the requirements for service of the notice of noncompliance and intent to suspend licenses, which is the first step in the process to suspend one or more licenses of a noncustodial parent who is not in compliance with a court order. In order to implement ESHB 1814, the division of child support (DCS) must amend WAC 388-14A-4505 and must correct a cross-reference in WAC 388-14A-4510.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.
