PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY

DEPARTMENT OF

FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Filed May 2, 2008, 4:14 p.m. ]

Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 220-20-019 Requirement to provide sales documents.

Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 77.12.047.

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Of the two sectors that handle commercial fish - wholesale fish dealers/buyers, and secondary receivers - RCW 77.15.568 adequately addresses the record-keeping requirements of the latter. This proposal will address the former and allow fish and wildlife officers to have continued access to wholesale dealers'/buyers' catch-accounting reports.

Process for Developing New Rule: Agency study.

Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Lori Preuss, WDFW Enforcement, 600 Capitol Way North, Olympia, WA 98501-1091, phone (360) 902-2930, fax (360) 902-2155, e-mail preuslmp@dfw.wa.gov. Contact by June 23, 2008. Expected proposal filing on or after July 2, 2008.
