PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY

GAMBLING COMMISSION


[ Filed November 23, 2009, 1:34 p.m. ]

Subject of Possible Rule Making: Cities and counties that apply for a gambling license.

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: In 2009 the state legislature amended RCW 9.46.0209 effectively adding cities and counties as bona fide charitable nonprofit organizations. As a result, cities and counties are now allowed to apply for and hold gambling licenses to conduct fundraising activities. This proposed rule change adds the required information needed on an application for a gambling license received from a city or county.

Process for Developing New Rule: Other [no further information supplied by agency.]
