EMERGENCY RULES

DEPARTMENT OF

FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 99-177-- Filed October 13, 1999, 11:52 a.m. ]

Date of Adoption: October 12, 1999.

Purpose: Personal use rules.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 232-28-61900U; and amending WAC 220-56-103, 232-12-018, and 232-28-619.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 75.08.080 and 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: Release of surplus hatchery coho adult salmon into a number of lakes will provide for recreational fisheries. Emergency listing under the landlocked salmon regulations will legalize these fisheries. Seasonal waters have been extended through November 30, 1999 to allow harvest opportunity throughout the life expectancy of these planted coho adult salmon. There is insufficient time to promulgate 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Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Comply with Federal Statute: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; Federal Rules or Standards: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; or Recently Enacted State Statutes: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted at Request of a Nongovernmental Entity: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted on the Agency's Own Initiative: New 3, Amended 0, Repealed 1.

Number of Sections Adopted Using Negotiated Rule Making: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; Pilot Rule Making: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; or Other Alternative Rule Making: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0. Effective Date of Rule: Immediately.
