EMERGENCY RULES

DEPARTMENT OF

FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 04-240 -- Filed September 2, 2004, 3:45 p.m. , effective September 2, 2004 ]


Purpose: Amend wildlife rules.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Amending WAC 232-28-291.

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 mailing date of the notice of special hunting season permits did not give adequate time for purchase of the permits. This rule is needed to provide opportunity to harvest the deer available under the permits. There is inadequate time to promulgate permanent rules for the 2004 season.

Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Comply with Federal Statute: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; Federal Rules or Standards: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; or Recently Enacted State Statutes: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted at Request of a Nongovernmental Entity: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted on the Agency's Own Initiative: New 1, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Clarify, Streamline, or Reform Agency Procedures: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted Using Negotiated Rule Making: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; Pilot Rule Making: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; or Other Alternative Rule Making: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

Date Adopted: September 3 [2], 2004.
