NEW SECTION
WAC 390-05-522   Place of business -- Definition.   "A place of business in the state of Washington" as that term is used in RCW 42.17.093 (1)(f) means the business is headquartered in or has a primary place of business in Washington state.

For example, if a national corporation headquartered outside of Washington state has retail outlets in Washington and that national corporation contributes two hundred fifty dollars to an out-of-state political committee that is subject to reporting under RCW 42.17.093, the out-of-state committee is not required to disclose the national corporation as a contributor under RCW 42.17.093 (1)(f).
