2016 boiler rule development

The Board of Boiler Rules is considering amending WAC 296-104-700 "What are the inspection fees - Examination fees - Certificate fees - Expenses?" to increase fees by the fiscal-growth factor of 4.32% for fiscal year 2017 (OFM's maximum allowable fiscal growth rate).

The Boiler Program's budget and projected revenue indicate a fee increase is necessary to cover the program's operating expenses.
