[ Filed June 22, 2007, 12:04 p.m. , effective July 1, 2007 ]


Effective Date of Rule: July 1, 2007.

Other Findings Required by Other Provisions of Law as Precondition to Adoption or Effectiveness of Rule: 2007 legislative action modified RCW 88.16.090 to allow the board to set pilot license fees through rule making.

Purpose: Increasing the pilot license fees is necessary to fund the pilotage account for the administration of the Pilotage Act.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Amending WAC 363-116-070 Collection of fees.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 88.16.090.

Other Authority: RCW 88.16.035.

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: Without proper funding, board operations for regulating state pilotage laws would be in jeopardy.
