EMERGENCY RULES

DEPARTMENT OF

FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 10-11 -- Filed January 14, 2010, 1:21 p.m. , effective January 16, 2010 ]


Effective Date of Rule: January 16, 2010.

Purpose: Amend personal use fishing rules.

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

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 77.12.047 and 77.04.020.

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: Since the Whitehorse Hatchery facility will meet broodstock goals for winter steelhead, the North Fork Stillaguamish River will reopen for fishing January 16, 2010. 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Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Comply with Federal Statute: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; Federal Rules or Standards: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; or Recently Enacted State Statutes: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.
