DSHS Semi-Annual Rule-Making Agenda

July 1, 2013 through December 31, 2013

This report is a list of rules that will be under development by DSHS administrations, divisions and other operating units from July 1, 2013 through December 31, 2013, as well as actions that were completed near the end of the previous reporting period. DSHS files a rule-making agenda with the Code Reviser twice each year to comply with RCW 34.05.314. There may be additional DSHS rule-making activity not included in this agenda as the Department responds to implement new state laws, to meet federal requirements, or to meet unforeseen circumstances.

Following the tables on the rule-making agenda there are explanations of the terms "preproposal notice," "proposed rule," "expedited rule," "permanent rule," "emergency rule" and other selected terms used in this agenda.
