This chapter constitutes the exclusive legislative authority for the licensing and
regulation of any gambling activity and the state preempts such licensing and regulatory
functions, except as to the powers and duties of any city, town, city-county, or county
which are specifically set forth in this chapter. Any ordinance, resolution, or other legislative act by any city, town, city-county,
or county relating to gambling in existence on September 27, 1973 shall be as of that
date null and void and of no effect. Any such city, town, city-county, or county may thereafter enact only such local
law as is consistent with the powers and duties expressly granted to and imposed upon
it by chapter 9.46 RCW and which is not in conflict with that chapter or with the
rules of the commission.
