LIQUOR CONTROL BOARD


[ Filed July 27, 2011, 10:38 a.m. ]

Subject of Possible Rule Making: Chapter 314-02 WAC, Requirements for retail liquor licensees.

Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 66.08.030, 66.24.400, 66.24.590, 66.24.371.

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: This rule making is the result [of] legislation that passed in the 2011 legislative session. SSB 5788, HB 1465, and SSB 5156 made changes to retail liquor licenses, created additional allowances for some retail licenses and created a new VIP Airport Lounge liquor license. Current rules need to be revised to reflect the changes and new rules need to be written to implement the new liquor license type.

Process for Developing New Rule: Interested parties can participate in the discussions formulating this rule change by contacting or sending written comments to the agency staff listed below.

Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Karen McCall, Agency Rules Coordinator, P.O. Box 43080, Olympia, WA 98504-3080, (360) 664-1631, fax (360) 664-9689, e-mail rules@liq.wa.gov.
