PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 260-36-200 Provisional owner's license.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 67.16.020.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Provisional owner's license is intended to allow an individual licensed as an owner in another state to enter a horse in a limited number of Washington races for fourteen days without the owner actually being present on the grounds of a racing association. The commission is contemplating amending WAC 260-36-200 to include a definition of provisional owner, extending the time a provisional owner's license is valid and specify a requirement that all applicable fees be paid with the extended period of time.
Process for Developing New Rule: Agency study.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Robert J. Lopez, Administrative Services Manager, Washington Horse Racing Commission, 6326 Martin Way, Suite 209, Olympia, WA 98516-5578, phone (360) 459-6462, fax (360) 459-6461, email@example.com.
