[ Order 04-251 -- Filed September 15, 2004, 4:54 p.m. , effective September 22, 2004, 7:00 p.m. ]


Purpose: Personal use rules.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 220-56-33000M; and amending WAC 220-56-330.

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 recreational crab fishery closure in Marine Area 7 is necessary to meet allocation requirements. There is insufficient time to promulgate permanent rules.
