Effective Date of Rule: January 1, 2008.
Purpose: The gambling commission is rewriting its rules manual using plain English techniques (rules simplification project). We anticipate the project will be completed by January 1, 2008. The rules manual is being broken into sections and rewritten a section at a time. When the rules relating to card rooms were rewritten and filed by the commission this rule was inadvertently not included. As such, it moved forward under a separate filing and was adopted at the March commission meeting.
