Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: This proposed rule amendment would remove language that reduces state basic education apportionment payments by proceeds from the sale, rental or lease of stone, minerals, timber, forest products, other crops and matter, and improvements from or on tax title real property managed by a county pursuant to chapter 36.35
Reasons Supporting Proposal: The proposed rule amendment would help ensure that local revenue does not offset costs of basic education as prescribed in EHB 2242 (2017). The change would also help ensure that there is equal treatment across all school districts with respect to defining deductible revenue related to forest land.
Rule is not necessitated by federal law, federal or state court decision.

RCW. The proposed amendment does not have an impact on small business and therefore does not meet the requirements for a statement under RCW 19.85.030
