Expedited Rulemaking Process

RCW 34.05.353 allows use of the expedited rulemaking process when 1) existing federal or state statues or rules are adopted by reference without material change, 2) when the material adopted regulates the same subject matter and conduct as the adopting or incorporating rule, and 3) the adopted rule has undergone negotiated rulemaking that involved substantial participation by the public.

State law requires the following appear in notices announcing expedited rulemaking:

THIS RULE IS BEING PROPOSED UNDER AN EXPEDITED RULE-MAKING PROCESS THAT WILL ELIMINATE THE NEED FOR THE AGENCY TO HOLD PUBLIC HEARINGS, PREPARE A SMALL BUSINESS ECONOMIC IMPACT STATEMENT, OR PROVIDE RESPONSES TO THE CRITERIA FOR A SIGNIFICANT LEGISLATIVE RULE. IF YOU OBJECT TO THIS USE OF THE EXPEDITED RULE-MAKING PROCESS, YOU MUST EXPRESS YOUR OBJECTIONS IN WRITING AND THEY MUST BE SENT TO:

Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council
P.O. Box 43172
Olympia, WA 98504-3172
