Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.
Process for Developing New Rule: Internal review and stakeholder input.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Stephanie Sams, DOL, P.O. Box 9020, Olympia, WA 98507-9020, phone 360-902-0131, email
