Subject of Possible Rule Making: This is to update miscellaneous sections of WAC regarding public record requests made to parks. Specifically, housekeeping updates to WAC 352-40-030 Where can I access state parks' public records?, 352-40-040 How is the agency organized and how is it operated?, 352-40-060 Who do I contact to request state parks' public records?, 352-40-080 How do I request state parks' public records?, and 352-40-090 Will I have to pay to view or get copies of state parks' public records?
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: Chapter 79A.05 RCW.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: It has been some years since the aforementioned sections of WAC have been updated and there have been changes that need to be made to reflect the most information in terms of contact information, the agency structure, and a new statutory fee schedule (from EHB 1594/RCW 42.56.120 Charges for copying).
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: Public records exemptions accountability committee (a.k.a. sunshine committee).
Process for Developing New Rule: Agency study.
