FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 99-135-- Filed August 31, 1999, 4:56 p.m. , effective September 1, 1999, 12:01 a.m. ]

Date of Adoption: August 31, 1999.

Purpose: Personal use rules.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 232-28-61900Q; 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 emergency regulation is needed to maintain the intent of the regulation to provide an orderly salmon fishery for juveniles. There is insufficient time to promulgate permanent rules.
