[Filed January 19, 2018, 11:11 a.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 308-104-014 Application for driver's license or identicard.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 46.01.110 and 46.20.119.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Without immediate adoption of a rule ending the department's collection of an applicant's place of birth, there is a risk that collection of information that does not prove identity and establishes a Washington resident's national origin could be lawfully obtained by federal law enforcement agencies for federal immigration enforcement purposes, or otherwise could be used to discriminate against a person based on national origin. See Governor's Executive Order 17-01.
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.
