PERMANENT RULES

GAMBLING COMMISSION


[ Order 686 -- Filed April 15, 2013, 3:20 p.m. , effective July 1, 2013 ]


Effective Date of Rule: July 1, 2013.

Purpose: This rule change assists licensees by clarifying that they must report certain new and updated information to us within thirty days, such as changes in their articles of incorporation or bylaws, contracts that relate to gambling activities, and cash contributions.

Reasons Supporting Proposal: The thirty day requirement was previously in our rules and was inadvertently removed during a rules simplification project (RSP) that was completed in 2008 to rewrite our rules in plain talk. Prior to the RSP, this rule was worded slightly different. The thirty day reporting requirement was specifically required for the items listed in subsection (2) of the rule. During RSP, the thirty day timeframe was only included in subsection (1), which only pertains to items initially submitted with an application. This change clarifies the timeline for licensees to submit new and updated documents to us.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Amending WAC 230-06-080.
