Purpose: During the process of amending the current permanent rule an extension of the emergency rule-making order was previously sought. The previous emergency rule order granted expired June 16. The bid process for the contract to manufacture the state flag is continuing and the adoption of an emergency rule was necessary for the process to continue. Bidding by flag manufacturers has concluded and permanent rules are now ready to take effect. The old WACs were out-of-date and did not list the valid color numbers.
