Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 220-56-25500H and amending WAC 220-56-244.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 75.08.080.

Under RCW 34.05.350 the agency for good cause finds that immediate adoption, amendment, or repeal of a rule is necessary for the preservation of the public health, safety, or general welfare, and that observing the time requirements of notice and opportunity to comment upon adoption of a permanent rule would be contrary to the public interest.

Reasons for this Finding: The halibut quota for Catch Record Card Area 2 has been taken. There is insufficient time to promulgate permanent rules.
