Page TitleDocket of WAC Rules

Proposed Rule-Making – September 2017

Columbia Basin College filed an emergency rule to update Chapter 132S-10, Public Records, with changes recently enacted through state legislation, and to make corrections that reflect the new fee schedule, new definitions, request procedure, clarification when a request is unclear and current statute citations. Emergency rules bypass the pre-proposal and proposal notices and the public hearing, which are requirements for permanent rules. Since emergency rules are only valid for 120 days, the College will initiate the permanent rule-making process.

Proposed Rule-Making - May 2016

The College made some changes (Supplemental CR-102 [WSR 16-09-073]) to the proposed rules published for comment in January 2016. The changes from what was originally proposed are regarding parking and traffic regulations and the financial obligations for outstanding debts for students. A process was added for appeal of parking citations including appeal before a citation review committee, along with other changes for parking. Financial obligations for outstanding debts for students include a debt review committee process, along with other changes including the division area with oversight responsibility.

Proposed Rule-Making

Rule changes are needed because many of the current WACs are outdated and needed to be reviewed, updated, and/or revised to accommodate current or changed practices and/or changes in local, state and federal guidelines. The date of the last full review of College policies and responsibilities at Columbia Basin College was in the early 1990s.
