Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject:
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The office of superintendent of public instruction (OSPI) is considering revising chapter 392-153 WAC to conform it with ESHB 1481 (2017).

Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: OSPI will collaborate with DOL for this rule making.
Process for Developing New Rule: Early solicitation of public comments and recommendations respecting new, amended, or repealed rules, and consideration of the comments and recommendations in the course of drafting rules.
