UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON


[ Filed July 21, 2003, 9:35 a.m. ]

Subject of Possible Rule Making: Chapter 478-136 WAC, Use of University of Washington facilities.

Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28B.20.130.

Currently WAC 478-136-030 prohibits only the consumption and possession of alcoholic beverages in Husky Stadium; it does not address the sale of alcohol. Amendment of these rules will provide regulation regarding the sale, possession, consumption, and service of alcohol on the University of Washington campuses.

Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: The University of Washington will notify the Washington State Liquor Control Board of its proposed rule amendments.

Process for Developing New Rule: Agency study.
