DEPARTMENT OF

FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 04-192 -- Filed July 28, 2004, 4:49 p.m. , effective July 29, 2004 ]


Purpose: Amend emergency application process.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Amending WAC 220-130-040.

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: ALEA funds have become available and must be used by the end of the biennium. Emergency declaration and awarding of funds is specifically provided for in the permanent rule. 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Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Comply with Federal Statute: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; Federal Rules or Standards: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; or Recently Enacted State Statutes: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.
