Subject of Possible Rule Making: The department is considering revising as well as adding to chapter 332-10 WAC.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 42.56.040, 42.56.070, 42.56.100, 42.56.120 and 42.56.520; and chapter 304, Laws of 2017.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The department of natural resources (DNR) proposes amending the chapter to better conform such chapter to (1) recent changes in the statutory law concerning public records; (2) model rules recommended by the attorney general's office (chapter 44-14 WAC); and (3) current agency practices.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: DNR will not be coordinating with any other state agencies in this rule making.
Process for Developing New Rule: Full rule-making process including a public hearing.
