This rulemaking increases the electrical fees by 6.40% to support operating expenses for the Electrical Program. The fee increase is the maximum allowable fiscal growth factor rate by the state Office of Financial Management for fiscal year 2025. The current fee levels are insufficient to cover current Program expenses. The fee increase is needed to ensure that revenues match expenditures. This rulemaking also removes the fee for printed copies of the electrical laws and rules. L&I is no longer providing printed copies, as electronic versions are available online. Removing the fee will ensure the rule is up-to-date and aligns with requirements.
