DEPARTMENT OF

FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 99-147-- Filed September 3, 1999, 4:19 p.m. ]

Date of Adoption: September 3, 1999.

Purpose: Amend personal use rules.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 220-56-20500D; and amending WAC 220-56-205.

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: This rule will prevent snagging of salmon in this area. It will reduce angler confusion as this restriction is currently stated in the sport fish pamphlet. There is insufficient time to adopt permanent rules.

Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Comply with Federal Statute: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; Federal Rules or Standards: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; or Recently Enacted State Statutes: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.
