Effective Date of Rule: Thirty-one days after filing.
Purpose: WAC 314-11-025 conflicted with changes in RCW 66.16.040 Forms of acceptable identification to verify age when purchasing alcohol. Policies requiring expiration dates on official identification are modified removing the requirement that a document must have an expiration date, but if it has an expiration, it cannot be used for this purpose once the expiration date has passed. This rule also removes language regarding use of temporary Washington driver's licenses.
