EMERGENCY RULES

DEPARTMENT OF

FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 08-10 -- Filed January 14, 2008, 3:48 p.m. , effective January 14, 2008, 3:48 p.m. ]


Effective Date of Rule: Immediately.

Purpose: Amend fishing rules.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 232-28-61900Q.

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 Kendall Creek Hatchery has met broodstock needs from returning hatchery winter steelhead to meet basin [basic] production goals. There is insufficient time to promulgate permanent rules.
