Chapters 388-825, 828, 845 WAC

The proposed amendments to these rules clarify language and correct outdated information, including removing prevocational services. Removing prevocational services from these rules is part of Washington’s Statewide Transition Plan and complies with ESSB 6052 and 42 C.F.R Section 441.301(c)(4)-(5). These amendments also distinguish Washington State’s minimum wage from other minimum wages, such as SEA-TAC’s regional minimum wage. This is not a change in the department’s interpretation of minimum wage, but a clarification in response to recent changes in the state that may allow for multiple interpretations as there are multiple minimum wages in Washington. These amendments are also needed for consistency with amendments to WAC 388-845-0603 filed under permanent rule adoption order WSR 17-08-102.
