Rules and Regulations In Progress
Updated Nov. 9, 2018
Rules are created through a public process involving open public workshops and hearings. The public is welcome to take part in helping us write rules. Rules are also known as regulations, Washington Administrative Code, or WAC. While each rule is in various stages of rule writing, you are welcome to comment at any time.
