Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: James Williams, a volunteer that assists nonprofit organizations with raffles and fund raisers is request[ing] that charitable and nonprofit organizations be allowed to sell raffle tickets that are not consecutively numbered for raffles that take place during the same event at the same location. The intent of this change is to allow organizations to use up left over theatre style tickets from previous raffles rather than throw them away. This may result in gaps in ticket numbering. This would be limited to raffles that take place during the same event at the same location and a raffle ticket distribution log must be maintained.

Reasons Supporting Proposal: See above.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 9.46.070, 9.46.0277.

Statute Being Implemented: Not applicable.

Rule is not necessitated by federal law, federal or state court decision.

Name of Proponent: James Williams, private.

Name of Agency Personnel Responsible for Drafting: Susan Newer, Lacey, (360) 486-3466; Implementation: Rick Day, Director, Lacey, (360) 486-3446; and Enforcement: Mark Harris, Assistant Director, Lacey, (360) 486-3579.

No small business economic impact statement has been prepared under chapter 19.85 RCW. A small business economic impact statement was not prepared because the proposed rule change does not impose additional costs on businesses.

A cost-benefit analysis is not required under RCW 34.05.328. The Washington state gambling commission is not an agency that is statutorily required to prepare a cost-benefit analysis under RCW 34.05.328.
