Effective Date of Rule: January 1, 2008.
Purpose: The gambling commission is rewriting its rules
manual using plain English techniques. We anticipate the
project will be completed by January 1, 2008. The rules
manual is being broken into sections and rewritten a section
at a time. Any substantive changes made to rules related to
general rules relating to the commission are identified below
which outlines the changes. This new chapter incorporates
rules that relate, in general, to the commission.
Pre-January 1, 2008, WAC 230-02-010 Washington state gambling commission -- Purpose and organization and 230-12-900 Deputy director. These pre-January 1, 2008, rules were originally written in 1973 to describe the newly formed commission, they gave a lot of detail about term limits and information that is contained in the Gambling Act at RCW 9.46.040 and 9.46.050. Because the RCW is so specific, we feel that these WAC rules can be removed.
Post-January 1, 2008, WAC 230-01-001 Time and place of public meetings. Chapter 34.05 RCW, the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), states requirements for public agencies to give proper notice of their public meetings. In our pre-January 1, 2008, WAC 230-02-020 Time and place of meetings, states, "giving at least two weeks advance notice, we normally hold regular public meetings monthly."
We propose dropping this "two week advance notice" language because we normally file all our meeting dates in December for the upcoming year, so we are exceeding what is called for by the APA.
