EMERGENCY RULES

DEPARTMENT OF

FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 04-231 -- Filed August 26, 2004, 11:30 a.m. , effective August 26, 2004 ]


Purpose: Personal use fishing rules.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Amending WAC 220-56-310.

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: Ocean squid encountered by tuna anglers exceed ten pounds in weight. This rule will allow anglers to possess a single squid that exceeds ten pounds. 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Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Comply with Federal Statute: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; Federal Rules or Standards: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; or Recently Enacted State Statutes: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted at Request of a Nongovernmental Entity: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted on the Agency's Own Initiative: New 1, Amended 0, Repealed 1.

Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Clarify, Streamline, or Reform Agency Procedures: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.
