PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
[Filed August 16, 2022, 4:01 p.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: The Washington state gambling commission (WSGC) is considering amending its rules related to wagering limits on house-banked card games, including WAC 230-15-140.
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: WSGC received a petition from the public proposing to amend rules to increase wagering limits on house-banked card games. Wagering limits for house-banked card games have not been increased since 2009. An amendment to rules to increase wagering limits, if approved, would specify the maximum limit authorized and how such limits must be applied.
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 Jess Lohse, P.O. Box 42400, Olympia, WA 98504-2400, phone 206-786-3530, TTY 360-486-3637, email firstname.lastname@example.org, website www.wsgc.wa.gov; or Adam Teal, phone 360-486-3475, email email@example.com.
