PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY

DEPARTMENT OF

FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Filed June 28, 2010, 10:28 a.m. ]

Subject of Possible Rule Making: Repeals two rules that are replaced by rules filed on June 23, 2010, as part of WSR 10-13-182.

Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 77.12.047 and 77.04.020.

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: On June 4, 2010, the department adopted new and amended rules for handling wildlife interactions and damage claims. These rules replace two existing rules, which must be repealed so as to not conflict with the new and amended rules.

Process for Developing New Rule: Agency study.
