Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Amending WAC 434-04-017.
Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 43.04.040(4).
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 Washington state flag contract provided by private vendors to the Department of General Administration has expired. General administration needs the new WAC in order to begin the bidding process by vendors who want to manufacture the Washington state flag.
