DEPARTMENT OF

FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 06-76 -- Filed April 11, 2006, 4:30 p.m. , effective April 12, 2006, 6:00 a.m. ]


Effective Date of Rule: April 12, 2006, 6:00 a.m.

Purpose: Amend commercial fishing rules.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 220-52-07100Z.

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 commercial harvest target of sea cucumbers for 2006 has been taken. There is insufficient time to promulgate permanent rules.
