     Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 314-02-107 What are the requirements for a spirits retail license?

     Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 66.24.630 and 66.08.030.

     Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The passage of Initiative 1183 and the privatization of spirits theft and product loss is significant and increasing. This is contributing to increased underage access to alcohol. Rules are needed to clarify reporting requirements of product loss due to theft and internal shrinkage.

     Process for Developing New Rule: Interested parties can participate in the discussions formulating this rule change by contacting or sending written comments to the agency staff listed below.

     Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Karen McCall, Agency Rules Coordinator, P.O. Box 43080, Olympia, WA 98504-3080, (360) 664-1631, fax (360) 664-9689, e-mail
