PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY

GAMBLING COMMISSION


[ Filed August 20, 2009, 8:19 a.m. ]

Subject of Possible Rule Making: Distributors, gambling service suppliers, and their representatives.

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: Staff is researching the background of the limitation of a distributor representative only being allowed to represent one distributor and a gambling service supplier representative only being able to represent one service supplier. After reviewing the reasons behind the limitation and regulatory implications/impacts, staff will determine if the limitation should remain in place or be removed to allow distributor representatives and/or gambling service supplier representatives to represent more than one business.

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, Director, P.O. Box 42400, Olympia, WA 98504-2400, (360) 486-3446; Mark Harris, Assistant Director, P.O. Box 42400, Olympia, WA 98504-2400, (360) 486-3579; or Susan Arland, Rules Coordinator, P.O.
