(1) For private projects which require licenses from more than one state agency, but require no license from a local agency, the lead agency shall be one of the state agencies requiring a license, based upon the following order of priority:
(a) Department of ecology.
(b) Department of health.
(c) Department of natural resources.
(d) Department of fish and wildlife.
(e) Utilities and transportation commission.
(f) Department of licensing.
(g) Department of labor and industries.
(2) When none of the state agencies requiring a license is on the above list, the lead agency shall be the licensing agency that has the largest biennial appropriation.
(3) When, under subsection (1), an agency would be the lead agency solely because of its involvement in a program jointly administered with another agency, the other agency shall be designated the lead agency for proposals for which it is primarily responsible under agreements previously made between the two agencies for joint operation of the program.
