Subject of Possible Rule Making: Enforcement of requirements governing the use of the public areas of the capitol campus.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 43.19.125 and 46.08.150.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: This rule making is needed to lay out and clarify enforcement of requirements governing the use of the public areas of the capitol campus. It is the intent of department of enterprise services (DES) to make clear who has enforcement authority, put in place a process for excluding someone from the campus, and establish a process for appealing an exclusion. In addition, technical edits for clarification and cleanup purposes are needed to make sure the rules line up with current RCW.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: The Washington state patrol provides law enforcement for the state capitol grounds and will be consulted throughout the development of rules.
Process for Developing New Rule: DES staff will include anyone interested in participating with DES in developing a proposed rule. An opportunity will also be provided for anyone to submit written comments on the proposed rules during the public comment period and present oral testimony at the public hearings. The public is encouraged to participate in all agency rule making. Specific opportunities to participate in agency rule-making activities are provided on the DES rule-making website
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Jack Zeigler, email, website
