Enforcement proceduresProcess and criteria for referring enforcement matters to the attorney general.

(1) When a complaint is filed or initiated by the PDC, the PDC may refer the matter at any time to the attorney general in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755. The determination to refer a matter to the attorney general will be made by either:
(a) A majority vote of the commission at a regular or special commission meeting; or
(b) By the executive director with the documented concurrence by electronic writing of either the chair or vice chair of the commission.
Any referral to the attorney general will be made in writing and may be made by electronic transmission.
(2) Enforcement matters potentially appropriate for referral may be brought to the executive director's attention by members of the commission, by PDC staff, by another party, or by the attorney general.
(3) Where the attorney general has requested referral of a matter and addressed the relevant criteria under RCW 42.17A.755, the executive director shall respond to the request within two business days. Both the request and the response shall be in writing and may be by electronic transmission.
(4) The executive director shall report at each regular commission meeting all referrals made by the executive director to the attorney general and all requests for referral by the attorney general since the prior commission meeting.
