DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE


[ Filed February 27, 2006, 4:21 p.m. , effective March 30, 2006 ]


Effective Date of Rule: Thirty-one days after filing.

Purpose: RCW 15.65.055 and 15.66.025 both state that the director of the department of agriculture shall have regulatory authority on the production of rapeseed by variety and geographical location until such time as the rapeseed commodity commission is formulated. A commission has been formed, named the Washington canola commission. Therefore, the department is repealing chapter 16-570 WAC as the regulatory authority, which has passed from the department to the canola commission. This action will eliminate any confusion about jurisdiction of authority.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing chapter 16-570 WAC.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 15.65.055 and 16.66.025 [15.66.025].
