AMENDATORY SECTION(Amending Order 99-209, filed 12/16/99, effective 1/16/00)

WAC 220-125-010   Scope of rules -- Definitions.   The provisions of this chapter apply to the department's authority under chapter((s)) 77.15 ((and 77.16)) RCW to issue orders that revoke licenses, tags, or permits issued by the department, or to suspend privileges administered by the department.

(1) "Revoke" and "revocation" mean issuance of a department order under chapter 77.15 ((or 77.16)) RCW that takes away a license, tag, or permit. A revocation order nullifies all privileges represented by the license, tag, or permit, regardless of whether a revoked license is physically returned to the department, unless that order is withdrawn or reversed.

(2) "Suspend" and "suspension" mean issuance of a department order under chapter 77.15 ((or 77.16)) RCW that prohibits a person from enjoying or exercising a privilege that is regulated by any licenses, tags, or permits issued by the department. When a person is subject to an order suspending privileges, then any license obtained in violation of the suspension is void.

(3) For purposes of suspending hunting privileges because of a person shooting another person or domestic livestock while hunting pursuant to RCW 77.15.720, a person is "hunting" if the person is in transit to or from engaging in hunting activities, or the person is in the field engaging in hunting activities.

[Statutory Authority: RCW 75.08.080. 00-01-101 (Order 99-209), 220-125-010, filed 12/16/99, effective 1/16/00.]
