Electronic Notification of DSHS Rule Making

RPAU sends e-mail notices to people interested in receiving DSHS rule-making information by using any of 12 electronic mailing lists (listserv files) that we maintain. If you would like to be notified by e-mail when DSHS files a rule-making notice (CR-101, CR-102, CR-103 or CR-105) on a particular subject, choose one of the lists below. Please note: If you sign up for the RPAUEVERYTHINGS list, you will be notified about every DSHS rule-making notice.

How to subscribe for e-mail notification: Send an e-mail message to: LISTSERV@LISTSERV.DSHS.WA.GOV. In the body of your e-mail message, typesubscribe and the name of the list(s) you wish to join, followed by @LISTSERV.DSHS.WA.GOV. For example, to get notices about rule-making actions from the DSHS Children's Administration, your message would say: subscribe RPAUCAF@LISTSERV.DSHS.WA.GOV. If you need help signing up, contact theĀ DSHS Rules Coordinator.
