NEW SECTION



WAC 230-30-225  Interest in separate business involving punch boards and pull-tabs at a different marketing level prohibited--Effect of spouse's interest. If my spouse is a substantial interest holder in a punch board or pull-tab operator, manufacturer, or distributor, will I be considered a substantial interest holder in the same business?



Except as otherwise provided in WAC 230-30-220, the spouse of an individual who is a holder of a substantial interest in a business involved in punch boards or pull-tabs may not be considered a substantial interest holder in such business if, after considering the entire circumstances surrounding the relationship and business, the director finds the potential for involvement or influence in the business by the spouse is not material. When spouses are involved in both the operation of and/or the supply of punch boards and pull-tabs, the director may impose additional requirements on either licensee, including, but not limited to prohibiting a manufacturer or distributor from making sales or providing services to an operator:

(a) Community or marital property agreements;

(b) Separate property agreements;

(c) Prenuptial agreements; or

(d) Wills and codicils.
