DEPARTMENT OF

FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 04-31 -- Filed February 20, 2004, 2:18 p.m. , effective February 20, 2004, 6:01 p.m. ]

Date of Adoption: February 20, 2004.

Purpose: Amend commercial fishing rules.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 220-52-07300L.

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: The state sea urchin harvest quota share amounts for 2003-2004 fishery have been taken. There is insufficient time to promulgate permanent rules.
