Section B(5) of the Department of Finance and administration
Regulation 1993-1 (Vending Machine Decal) is here by amended to read as
Each vending device owner or registrant
shall create an initial inventory list of all vending devices owned or operated
by the registrant as of November 1, 1994. The initial inventory list shall be
filed with the Miscellaneous Tax Section, P.O. Box 89 6, Little Rock, AR 722 03
on or before January 1, 19 95. A registrant or owner purchasing vending device
decals for the first time after November 1, 1994 is required to provide the
Director with a complete and accurate inventory list before decals will be

STATEMENT OF IMMINENT PERIL
The Director of the Department of Finance and Administration
(DF&A) is required to enforce the Vending Devices Decal Act of 1993 (Ark.
Code Ann. §
26-57-1001, et seq.).
Based on the records of DF&A, a substantially fewer number of vending
devices have been registered than were registered under previous law.
Accordingly, additional information concerning the location, identity, use and
number of vending devices held out for public use by vending device owners and
operators is necessary so that the Director may adequately enforce the law. The
amendment to Section B(5) of the existing Vending Machine Regulation 1993-1
will achieve that goal.
It is necessary that this amendment become effective
immediately so that the Director may assess and collect delinquent decal fees
as quickly as possible.
