FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 05-239 -- Filed October 11, 2005, 4:08 p.m. , effective October 15, 2005, 7:30 p.m. ]


Purpose: Amend personal use fishing rules.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 220-56-32500G; and amending WAC 220-56-325.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 77.12.240.

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 regulation is necessary to close the recreational shrimp season and revert back to permanent rules. There is insufficient time to promulgate permanent rules.
