Abstract

The Washington Manufacturing Innovation and Modernization Extension Service (MIMES) Program was created to increase the availability of innovation and modernization services to Washington manufacturers. The Sunset statutes direct that, absent specific action by the Legislature, the MIMES Program will cease to exist on June 30, 2012. Because no manufacturers are using the MIMES Program, JLARC recommends that the Legislature allow the Program to expire. The Department of Commerce concurs with the recommendation.
