Six of the Board’s rules reference chapter 4-25 WAC. In October 2010 and January 2011, the Board decodified and recodified its rules as chapter 4-30 WAC. The Board corrected the six rules to change the references to the accurate reference Title 4 WAC.
WAC 4-30-048 contained a listing of 17 standards. But, the rule referenced standards “(1) through (16).” The Board corrected the rule to reference the complete list of 17 standards.
WAC 4-30-020 contained a grammatical error. The Board corrected the error.
The Board made the above changes under an expedited rule-making process that eliminated the need for the Board to hold public hearings, prepare a small business economic impact statement, or provide responses to the criteria for a significant legislative rule. No one expressed objections.
