DEPARTMENT OF

FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 11-231 -- Filed September 9, 2011, 9:37 a.m. , effective September 9, 2011, 9:37 a.m. ]


Effective Date of Rule: Immediately.

Purpose: Amend recreational 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 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: The fishery was agreed to during the preseason planning process (North of Falcon) but was inadvertently omitted from the 2011/12 sportfishing rules pamphlet. 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Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Comply with Federal Statute: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; Federal Rules or Standards: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; or Recently Enacted State Statutes: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.
