WAC 388-865-0260

The department proposes to repeal WAC 388-865-0260 which was inadvertently left off the list of repealed sections proposed under WSR 16-07-152, filed on March 23, 2016, and implementing 2SSB 6312 (Chapter 225, Laws of 2014). The language in this repealed section was updated and is found in WAC 388-877-0410, WAC 388-877-0420, WAC 388-877-0500, and other sections in chapter 388-877 WAC “Behavioral health services administrative requirements”. The rest of the Regional Support Network rules were repealed under WSR 16-13-087.
