All updates for this rule:

Crime Victims Compensation (WAC 296-30-020, WAC 296-30-090)

The purpose of this expedited rulemaking is to bring the rules for Crime Victims Compensation in compliance with the statutory changes of Engrossed Substitute House Bill (ESHB) 1739 (Chapter 235, Laws of 2017), which became effective on July 23, 2017. ESHB 1739 changed the Crime Victims’ Compensation law, Chapter 7.68 RCW, in two ways. First, it clarified when a vehicular assault can be the basis for a claim. Second, it now requires Labor and Industries to pay providers at 100% of worker compensation fee schedule. The rules for the program must be changed to comply with the law.820.
