PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY

GAMBLING COMMISSION


[ Filed January 14, 2005, 9:14 a.m. ]

Subject of Possible Rule Making: Issuing temporary licenses.

Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 9.46.070.

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The director has authority to approve temporary licenses, except for manufacturers and house-banked card rooms. The proposal would streamline our processes by allowing the director the authority to also approve temporary licenses for these two activities.

Process for Developing New Rule: Negotiated rule making.

Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Rick Day, Deputy Director, P.O.
