Notice of Expedited Rule Making: Housekeeping amendments

Notice of Expedited Rule Making (Per RCW 34.05.353)

Title of Rule and Other Identifying Information: Housekeeping amendments to WAC 478-120-020, 478-120-140, and 478-124-020.

Statutory Authority for Adoption and Statute Being Implemented: RCW 28B.20.130.

Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: In both WAC 478-120-020 and 478-124-020 one subsection is edited to include a federal statute citation in order to clarify the continuing illegality of non-licensed alcohol or controlled substances on the UW premises.

WAC 478-120-140 is edited to clarify that the Vice President and Vice Provost for Student Life has been and continues to be the University President’s designee regarding emergency suspension of students at the UW Seattle campus.

Reasons Supporting Proposal: The UW considers these amendments to be housekeeping edits that clarify the language of a rule without changing its effect, per RCW 34.05.353 (1)(c).
