EMERGENCY RULES

DEPARTMENT OF

FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 06-252 -- Filed September 29, 2006, 3:00 p.m. , effective October 1, 2006, 12:01 a.m. ]


Effective Date of Rule: October 1, 2006, 12:01 a.m.

Purpose: Amend personal use rules.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 232-28-61900V; and 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: This regulation is necessary to provide public the opportunity to harvest an unexpected surplus of hatchery reared cutthroat trout. These fish must be stocked this fall due to water and space limitations at the hatchery. 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Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Comply with Federal Statute: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; Federal Rules or Standards: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; or Recently Enacted State Statutes: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.
