Effective Date of Rule: Immediately upon filing.
Purpose: The purpose of this emergency rule is to remove language from WAC 392-121-415 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
Citation of Rules Affected by this Order: Amending WAC 392-121-415.
Under RCW 34.05.350
the agency for good cause finds that immediate adoption, amendment, or repeal of a rule is necessary for the preservation of the public health, safety, or general welfare, and that observing the time requirements of notice and opportunity to comment upon adoption of a permanent rule would be contrary to the public interest.
Reasons for this Finding: The immediate adoption of this rule is necessary to ensure that local revenue does not offset the costs of basic education as prescribed in EHB 2242 (2017).
The office of superintendent of public instruction is actively undertaking the appropriate procedures to adopt the emergency rule as a permanent rule. A public hearing was held on November 16, 2018.
