DRS Rule Preproposals

Email me when this page is updated

State agencies use preproposals to let the public know that they are considering a rule proposal. These are also used to let the public know how they can become involved in the process. For more information, please see RCW 34.05.310.

All agencies file their preproposals with the Code Reviser's Office for publication in the Washington State Register (WSR). The WSR numbers shown on the right side of the table are assigned by the Code Reviser's Office. Select a WSR number to go directly to the preproposal notice.
