EMERGENCY RULES

DEPARTMENT OF

FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 09-70 -- Filed May 5, 2009, 1:52 p.m. , effective June 1, 2009 ]


Effective Date of Rule: June 1, 2009.

Purpose: Amend personal use fishing rules.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 232-28-61900S; 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: Agency intent was to open the Little Naches River on the first Saturday in June under the new statewide river/stream season. Due to an oversight, the new 2009-10 pamphlet retained the old June 1 opening date. This emergency rule corrects the discrepancy between the pamphlet and the Washington Administrative Code. There is insufficient time to adopt 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Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Comply with Federal Statute: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; Federal Rules or Standards: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; or Recently Enacted State Statutes: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted at Request of a Nongovernmental Entity: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted on the Agency's Own Initiative: New 1, Amended 0, Repealed 1.

Date Adopted: May 5, 2009.
