[ Order 04-248 -- Filed September 15, 2004, 4:24 p.m. , effective September 15, 2004 ]


Purpose: Amend personal use fishing rules.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Amending WAC 232-28-619.

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: These lakes are scheduled for rehabilitation in October utilizing rotenone. There is insufficient time to promulgate permanent rules.
