Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: Repeals the marketing order for the farmed salmon commission, which was terminated in 1999.

Reasons Supporting Proposal: The farmed salmon commission was formed in December 1992 under the Washington State Agricultural Commodities Board Act (formerly titled Agricultural Enabling Act of 1961), chapter 15.65 RCW. In September 1999, the board of the farm[ed] salmon commission filed written application with the director of agriculture to terminate the commission because the activities of the commission could no longer effectuate the policies of chapter 15.65 RCW. The director of agriculture determined in accordance with RCW 15.65.190 that all of the affected producers of farmed salmon with one hundred percent of the production had assented to the termination of the commission.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 15.65.190, chapter 34.05 RCW.
