Notice of Possible Rule Making — Preproposal Statement of Inquiry (per RCW 34.05.310)

Reasons Why Rules on This Subject May Be Needed and What They Might Accomplish:  Due to recent changes in the state Liquor Control Board’s rules for the special occasion license, the University proposes making administrative changes to its alcoholic beverage policy.  The University also proposes to clarify rules pertaining to third-party vendors, restrictions at athletic venues, and the time frame for obtaining a license or permit.
