EMERGENCY RULES

DEPARTMENT OF

FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 99-05-- Filed January 28, 1999, 5:00 p.m. ]

Date of Adoption: January 28, 1999.

Purpose: Delay implementation of permanent rule filed in WSR 99-01-154.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 220-52-050, 220-88B-010, 220-88B-020, 220-88B-030, 220-88B-040, and 220-88B-050.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 75.08.080.

Under RCW 34.05.350 the agency for good cause finds that state or federal law or federal rule or a federal deadline for state receipt of federal funds requires immediate adoption of a rule.

Reasons for this Finding: RCW 75.30.230 requires notification to the standing committees of the House of Representatives and Senate dealing with fisheries issues thirty days before the effective date of a rule designating an emerging commercial fishery. The department adopted the rule designating the ocean spot shrimp as an emerging commercial fishery on December 22, 1998, to be effective January 22, 1999. Notice to the standing committees was inadvertently delayed, and not mailed until January 26, 1999. This rule suspends the emerging commercial fishery for ocean spot shrimp through February 25, 1999, being thirty days after the notification was sent to the committees.
