FISH AND WILDLIFE
Effective Date of Rule: Immediately.
Purpose: To amend commercial fishing rules.
Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 220-47-41100E; and amending WAC 220-47-411.
Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 77.04.020, 77.12.045, and 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: The department identified an error in the wording of WAC 220-47-411. This emergency rule amends the permanent rules so that they are correct. There is insufficient time to adopt a permanent rule to make these corrections.
