PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
Subject of Possible Rule Making: Raffles.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 9.46.070, 9.46.0277.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: We have received a petition for rule change from James Williams, a volunteer that assists nonprofit organizations with raffles and fund raisers. The proposed rule change would allow charitable and nonprofit organizations to sell raffle tickets that are not consecutively numbered for raffles that take place during a single event where winners must be present to win.
Process for Developing New Rule: Interested parties can participate in the discussion of this proposed change by attending a commission meeting, or contacting the agency rules coordinator at the contact information below.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Susan Arland, Rules Coordinator, P.O. Box 42400, Olympia, WA 98504-2400, (360) 486-3466, e-mail Susan. Arland@wsgc.wa.gov, fax (360) 486-3625.
