Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: The purpose of this rule making is to repeal WAC 314-11-025 that lists the types of official identification that a person must present if their age is questioned when purchasing alcohol. The board proposes to remove reference to the need for expiration dates on these documents and the need to show a punched expired Washington driver's license along with a temporary license.

Reasons Supporting Proposal: RCW 66.16.040 sufficiently describes the types of documents that must be shown by a person when that person's age is questioned for purposes of purchasing alcohol. The format of the temporary Washington driver's license has changed to include a picture giving it the characteristics of a permanent license. Expiration dates are not a requirement for an official form of ID.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 66.16.040.

Statute Being Implemented: RCW 66.16.040.

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

Name of Proponent: Washington state liquor control board, governmental.
