PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY

GAMBLING COMMISSION


[ Filed September 25, 2006, 2:07 p.m. ]

Subject of Possible Rule Making: Card rooms.

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: Currently, house-banked card room licensees must process fills and credits using a three part form dispensed from a "whiz machine." The petition for rule change submitted by Leading Edge Software would allow each page of the three part form used for fills and credits to be printed out separately on a printer from a computer based program.

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 Rick Day, Deputy Director, P.O. Box 42400, Olympia, WA 98504-2400, (360) 486-3446; Sharon Reese, Deputy Director, P.O. Box 42400, Olympia, WA 98504-2400, (360) 486-3452; or Susan Arland, Rules Coordinator, P.O. Box 42400, Olympia, WA 98504-2400, (360) 486-3466, e-mail Susana@wsgc.wa.gov.

[Meetings on] November 17, 2006, and on January 12, 2007, at the DoubleTree Guest Suites, 16500 Southcenter Parkway, Seattle, WA 98188, (206) 575-8220; and on February 9, 2007, at the Red Lion Hotel, 2300 Evergreen Park Drive, Olympia, WA 98502, (360) 943-4000.
