Subject of Possible Rule Making: Amend chapter 132Q-276 WAC, Public records.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28B.50.140, 42.56.040, [42.56].120.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: (1) To comply with EHB 1595 and RCW 42.56.120, it is necessary to update this code; (2) it is unduly burdensome for the Community Colleges of Spokane (CCS) to calculate actual costs for copying records to fulfill public records requests; and (3) pursuant to RCW 42.56.120, these changes will allow CCS to be reimbursed the costs associated with fulfilling its duties under the Public Records Act.
Process for Developing New Rule: CCS welcomes students, employees, and the public to take part in developing the rules. Anyone interested should contact the staff person identified below. At a later date, CCS will file with the office of the code reviser a notice of proposed rule making with the formal text. A copy of the proposal will be posted on the CCS internet site (
