PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY

GAMBLING COMMISSION


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

Subject of Possible Rule Making: Applicants for a gambling license and current gambling licensees.

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: This rule was previously codified under WAC 230-04-240. This was removed during the rule simplification process in favor of RCW 9.46.070(5). This proposed new rule will add back and clarify the requirement that applicants and licensees are to pay for additional costs incurred during any prelicensing or post-licensing investigations where the basic license fees are insufficient to cover our costs.

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