Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 260-36-120 Denial, suspension, and revocation -- Grounds.

Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 67.16.020.

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The Washington horse racing commission is contemplating amending the licensing requirement in which the board of stewards must deny or revoke an application or existing license.

Process for Developing New Rule: Negotiated rule making.

Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Douglas L.
