EMERGENCY RULES

DEPARTMENT OF

FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 07-56 -- Filed April 11, 2007, 9:19 a.m. , effective May 18, 2007, 12:01 a.m. ]


Effective Date of Rule: May 18, 2007, 12:01 a.m.

Purpose: Amend personal use fishing rules.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 232-28-61900Z; and 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: This rule change is necessary to assure two safe and successful fishing events for juvenile anglers at Bradley Lake. The first of these youth fishing events traditionally has been held at Wapato Lake, which was closed to public access due to water quality and public health concerns, so sponsors had to find a new place to hold the highly popular event. 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Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Comply with Federal Statute: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; Federal Rules or Standards: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; or Recently Enacted State Statutes: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted at Request of a Nongovernmental Entity: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.
