Notice of Expedited Rule Making (Per RCW 34.05.353)

Title of Rule and Other Identifying Information: WAC 478-160-163, Waivers of Tuition and Fees.

Statutory Authority for Adoption and Statute Being Implemented: Chapter 261, Laws of 2010; Chapter 28B.15 RCW; and RCW 28B.20.130.


Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: During the 2010 Legislative Session, EHB 2519 (Chapter 261, Laws of 2010) was passed mandating the UW waive tuition for children and surviving spouses of law enforcement officers (as defined in Chapter 41.26 RCW), firefighters (as defined in Chapters 41.24 or 41.26 RCW), or Washington State patrol officers who lost their lives or became totally disabled in the line of duty while employed by any public law enforcement agency or full-time volunteer fire department in Washington State.


This changed the tuition waiver from a permissive waiver, authorized but not required by the state, to be affirmatively implemented by the University of Washington Board of Regents, to one that is mandatory and authorized by the state of Washington.


Reasons Supporting Proposal: The content of the proposed rule is explicitly and specifically dictated by statute.


NOTICE: THIS RULE IS BEING PROPOSED UNDER AN EXPEDITED RULE-MAKING PROCESS THAT WILL ELIMINATE THE NEED FOR THE AGENCY TO HOLD PUBLIC HEARINGS, PREPARE A SMALL BUSINESS ECONOMIC IMPACT STATEMENT, OR PROVIDE RESPONSES TO THE CRITERIA FOR A SIGNIFICANT LEGISLATIVE RULE. IF YOU OBJECT TO THIS USE OF THE EXPEDITED RULE-MAKING PROCESS, YOU MUST EXPRESS YOUR OBJECTIONS IN WRITING AND THEY MUST BE SENT TO:
