PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
[Filed March 4, 2019, 4:20 p.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: The gambling commission is considering amending its manufacturer and distributor rules to clarify what activities can be done under these licenses.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 9.46.070
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The gambling commission accepted a rules petition requesting a rule change to the agency's marketing level restrictions for punch board and pull-tab gambling service suppliers. The petitioner requested that it be allowed to be a distributor and perform certain service supplier activities, such as training, to current and potential licensees for a fee. Holding both licenses for these activities is currently prohibited. The agency will consider amending manufacturer and distributor rules to allow a narrow set of additional services, including training.
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 Ashlie Laydon, Rules Coordinator, P.O.
