Subject of Possible Rule Making: Title 247 WAC, Health care facilities authority.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: Chapter 70.37
RCW, Health care facilities.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: A number of existing rules need to be updated to reflect a more streamlined bond issuance process and to conform to current practices. In addition, due to the passage of time some rules relating to the agency's operations should be updated and the agency's rules regarding public records should be updated to reflect changes in the Public Records Act and related model rules. These rule changes will better inform stakeholders regarding the agency's manner of conducting business and facilitate the agency's accomplishment of its statutory responsibilities.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.
Process for Developing New Rule: Agency study.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Donna A. Murr, 410 11th Avenue S.E., Suite 201, phone 360-586-4370, fax 360-586-9168, email email@example.com, website www.whcfa.wa.gov.
