Subject of Possible Rule Making: To increase the maximum value of a raffle ticket sold as part of a members-only raffle from $25 to $100.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 9.46.070 and 9.46.0277.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The petitioner, Ducks Unlimited Washington, submitted a petition for rule change to increase the maximum value of a raffle ticket sold as part of a members-only raffle from $25 to $100 for raffle packages containing multiple components.
Rule will apply to members-only raffles. The petitioner states these rule changes will likely address:
Increase predictability for licensees that a member-only (raffle) will result in a net profit for the licensee.
Increase member-only raffle limit to entice sponsors to step up to the next level.
Balance the increase in the sponsor package with the cost of the items offered on the sponsor board as prizes.
Process for Developing New Rule: Negotiated rule making; and interested parties can participate in the discussion of this proposed change by attending a commission meeting, or contacting the agency staff at the contact information below.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication. Written comments can be directed to Rules Coordinator, P.O. Box 42400, Olympia, WA 98504-2400, fax (360) 486-3630, phone (360) 486-3447, or email
