Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The Washington horse racing commission (WHRC) may need to adjust the source market fees distribution based on the effect to the revenue for WHRC in the event the in-state parimutuel handle exceeds $50 million, thereby reducing the parimutuel tax from 1.803 percent to 1.3 percent.
Process for Developing New Rule: Negotiated rule making.
