PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 378-136-041 Alcoholic beverage policy.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28B.20.130.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Currently, the University of Washington's alcoholic beverage policy does not provide for licensing under a sports entertainment facility license. The proposed WAC rule amendment will make it clear that alcohol sales, service, and consumption in Husky Stadium will be governed by and must be in compliance with such a license issued by the Washington state liquor control board. The operating plan required to obtain the annual sports entertainment facility license will limit alcohol sale, service, and consumption to suite and club areas, approximately five percent of the available seating in the renovated Husky Stadium.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.
Process for Developing New Rule: Agency study.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication. Written comments or inquiries may be directed to Rebecca Goodwin Deardorff, Director of Rules Coordination by one of the following routes: Mail University of Washington, Rules Coordination Office, Box 351210, Seattle, WA 98195-1210, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or fax (206) 685-3825.
