Rules Under Development

Agriculture, Safety standards for

Chapter 296-307, WAC

Temporary Worker Housing (Chapter 296-307 WAC, Part L and Part L-1)

The Department of Labor and Industries (L&I) and the Department of Health (DOH) are required by RCW 70.114A.065 and RCW 49.17.310 to have joint rules for the licensing, operation, and inspection of temporary worker and cherry harvest housing and for the enforcement of these rules. Currently, the joint rules are identical except as they relate to issues that fall under the jurisdiction of only one of the agencies. DOH filed a CR 101 Pre-proposal Statement of Inquiry on October 28, 2013 (WSR 13-22-014), to consider amending the temporary worker housing and cherry harvest camps operational and inspection processes. These rules will also consider reformatting and incorporating technical housekeeping updates. L&I is initiating rulemaking to participate with the Department of Health in a joint rulemaking process as required.
