FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 04-78 -- Filed April 15, 2004, 11:06 a.m. , effective April 24, 2004, 12:01 a.m. ]

Date of Adoption: April 15, 2004.

Purpose: Amend personal use 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: The city of Sammamish has closed public access at Pine Lake while construction projects to renovate park facilities are in progress. Park renovations will not be completed prior to the traditional lowland lakes opening date scheduled for Saturday, April 24, 2004. 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Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Comply with Federal Statute: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; Federal Rules or Standards: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; or Recently Enacted State Statutes: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted at Request of a Nongovernmental Entity: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted on the Agency's Own Initiative: New 1, Amended 0, Repealed 0.
