Chapter 173-03 WAC Public Records - Emergency Rule Amendment
Emergency Rule- WAC 173-03-9000E
The Department of Ecology is doing a permanent rulemaking to amend Chapter 173-03 WAC Public Records. The purpose of this chapter is to implement the requirements of the Public Records Act including the process the agency uses for disclosing records.
This update will modernize the rule to reflect current law, technology, and processes. On 7/20/17 we filed an emergency rule amendment to implement changes passed by the legislature during the 2017 legislative session. This emergency rule will be in place until 11/17/2017. The content of this emergency rule will be included in the permanent rulemaking we are conducting.
Why it matters
The rule has not been updated since 1998 and needs to reflect current law, technology, and processes. The rule also contains outdated information about Ecology programs and staff, which will be made current and will reflect changes made in the 2017 legislative session.
Scope of rule development
Ecology is proposing to amend Chapter 173-03 WAC. This update will modernize the rule to reflect current law, technology, and processes.
