[ Order 99-42-- Filed May 14, 1999, 2:42 p.m. , effective June 5, 1999, 8:00 a.m. ]

Date of Adoption: May 14, 1999.

Purpose: Personal use rules.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 232-28-61900H; and amending WAC 232-28-619.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 77.12.040.

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: This rule is needed to regulate a juvenile fishing derby on planted trout. Following conclusion of the derby the planted trout are available to all fishers. There is insufficient time to promulgate permanent rules.
