[ Filed August 12, 1999, 2:12 p.m. ]

Subject of Possible Rule Making: Marine preserve and conservation area boundaries.

Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 75.08.080.

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Certain boundaries have been described using physical objects (such as a boundary circumscribing a net pen), and some of these physical objects have been moved or otherwise the boundary is not adequately described. Use of a more readily identifiable object or location would afford surety to users of the location of the marine preserve or conservation area.

Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.

Process for Developing New Rule: Agency study.

Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Mary Lou Mills, 600 Capitol Way, Olympia, WA 98501-1091, phone (360) 902-2834, fax (902) 2944 [(360) 902-2944]. Contact by November 2, 1999. Expected proposal filing November 3, 1999.
