EMERGENCY RULES

DEPARTMENT OF

FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 03-97 -- Filed May 14, 2003, 4:56 p.m. ]

Date of Adoption: May 14, 2003.

Purpose: Amend commercial use rules.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 220-88C-04000D; and amending WAC 220-88C-040.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 77.12.047.

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 necessary to avoid early attainment of quota by agreement with Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. 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Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Comply with Federal Statute: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; Federal Rules or Standards: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; or Recently Enacted State Statutes: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.
