The activities of the Statute Law Committee, and the Code Reviser who serves as its secretary, include codifying, indexing, and publishing the Revised Code of Washington and also revising, correcting, and reconciling the statutes by means of administrative or legislative action. The Statute Law Committee functions as the official bill-drafting arm of the Legislature and its various committees, and prepares and prints for the Legislature all bills, memorials, resolutions, amendments, and conference reports. Under the authority of RCW 34.05.210, the Code Reviser also compiles, indexes, and publishes the Washington Administrative Code (WAC) and the Washington State Register (WSR). The Code Reviser's office sells the RCW, the session laws, the WAC, and subscriptions to the Register. The Order Typing Service (OTS) provides typing and editorial services to state agencies drafting administrative rules.
