[Filed November 22, 2017, 11:07 a.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: Updating chapter 132W-277 WAC to reflect recent legislative changes to RCW 42.56.120 and 42.56.080.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28B.50.140(13), 42.56.120, 42.56.080.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Chapter 132W-277 WAC is in need of updating (including WAC 132W-277-080 Requests for public records and 132W-277-090 Copying) due to recent legislative changes to RCW 42.56.120 and 42.56.080. Needed changes include how Wenatchee Valley College can and will charge for copies of public records and how the records may be requested. The college is considering charging for records in accordance with RCW 42.56.120 (2)(a) since calculating and charging for actual costs associated with producing public records under RCW 42.56.120 (2)(a) would be unduly burdensome.
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 contacting Reagan Bellamy, 1300 Fifth Street, Wenatchee, WA, phone 509-682-6445, email
