No small business economic impact statement has been prepared under chapter 19.85 RCW. These rules do not impose a disproportionate impact on small businesses or affect a school district under Title 28A RCW.
A cost-benefit analysis is not required under RCW 34.05.328. The University of Washington does not consider these to be significant legislative rules.
