Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 182-533-0370 Infant case management—Client eligibility, 182-533-0390 Childbirth education (CBE) classes, and other related rules as appropriate.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The agency is revising WAC 182-533-0370 to allow an infant's parent who becomes pregnant during the infant's infant case management (ICM) eligibility period to receive maternity support services and WAC 182-533-0390 to reduce the minimum hours of CBE instruction required from eight to six. During the course of this review, the agency may identify additional changes that are required in order to improve clarity or update policy.
Process for Developing New Rule: The agency welcomes the public to take part in developing this rule. If interested, contact the person identified below to receive an early rule draft to review. After the early review, the agency will send a notice of proposed rule making (CR-102) to everyone receiving this notice and anyone who requests a copy.
