Government Transparency
Bill Number: SB044
Year: 2009
ACLU Position: Passive Support
Sponsors: Sen. Boyd; Rep. Hullinghorst


For reviews of an administrative law judge's decision involving the department of human services (department), permits a party who cannot afford a written transcript to file an audio recording. Eliminates an exception for provider appeals that allows the decision of the administrative law judge rather than the department to constitute final agency action for purposes of judicial review. Provides that any existing rules of the executive director or of the department adopted prior to the enactment of this bill that contain subject matter appropriate for board rules are valid and enforceable until revised, amended, or repealed by the state board.
