PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY

GAMBLING COMMISSION


[ Filed September 23, 2011, 9:34 a.m. ]

Subject of Possible Rule Making: Raffles.

Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 9.46.070, 9.46.0277.

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: We are working with 50/50 Central, a licensed manufacturer, to develop rules to outline the use of electronic accounting software to sell raffle tickets. The software is currently approved for use in Washington state.

We are also working with 50/50 Central to develop rules to sell raffle tickets at a discount using this new software. The request to sell tickets at a discount, using the new software, originated from a petition for rule change submitted by 50/50 Central, filed under WSR 11-17-014.

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.
