FindingsIntentEffective date2018 c 201: See notes following RCW 41.05.018.
Codification correction2016 c 206: "The 1982 codification of an amendment to RCW 43.59.030, concerning the designation and authority of the governor's designee to the traffic safety commission, incorrectly omitted two phrases that were included in chapter 30, Laws of 1982, as signed into law by governor John Spellman. Section 2 of this act restores the missing phrases." [ 2016 c 206 § 1.]
