[ Filed August 13, 2012, 11:15 a.m. ]

     Subject of Possible Rule Making: Chapter 260-28 WAC, Ownerships, trainers, and employees.

     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 (WHRC) is considering adopting a new section to prohibit the use of a "program trainer." This would ensure that the person responsible for the condition of the horse at time of entry is the individual which actually has the horse under their control.

     Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.

     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. Moore, Deputy Executive Secretary, WHRC, 6326 Martin Way, Suite 209, Olympia, WA 98516-5578, phone (360) 459-6462, fax (360) 459-6461,
