I-502 Rulemaking Underway
On April 17, 2013 the Board adopted the official I-502 implementation timeline as proposed by agency staff. Under this timeline all three licenses (Producer, Processor and Retailer) will go through the rulemaking process at the same time. This allows potential licensees to see the entire system as they decide whether to apply for a license.
During this stage of the rule-making process the Board is seeking public comment and input on how the public thinks the all three licenses should work and what type of regulations should come with them.
Board staff will review the written input as it formulates draft rules. Once the draft rules are prepared, the Board will again seek comment on draft rules (CR 102), including at least one public hearing. The details for any public meeting will be posted on the LCB website as soon as they become available. Notices will also be sent via the I-502 Listserv maintained by the Liquor Control Board.
We will use the I-502 Listserv and website for notifications and updates as they are available. You can also follow us on twitter (WSLCB).
