WAC 1-21-030

Agency filings affecting this section

Notice period—Washington State Register distribution date.

(1) Under RCW 34.05.320, notice of proposed rule making must be published in the Washington State Register at least twenty days before the agency may hold a hearing on the proposal. The Washington State Register is distributed on the first and third Wednesdays of each month. If a distribution date falls on a state holiday as determined by RCW 1.16.050, the distribution date of that Washington State Register will be delayed until Thursday.
(2) In counting the twenty-day notice period, consider the distribution date of the pertinent Washington State Register as day twenty; count down to day zero to find the first day on which a hearing may be held; cf. RCW 1.12.040 and State ex rel. Earley v. Batchelor, 15 Wn.2d 149 (1942).
(3) The schedule of closing dates on page 2 of each Washington State Register applies this section and WAC 1-21-040 to the current year. In case of a discrepancy between the WAC rules and the schedule, the rules have priority.
