WSR 14-22-107
[Filed November 5, 2014, 7:51 a.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: The department is considering new rules to establish new types of combination fishing licenses.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 77.32.050, 77.32.090, and 77.32.470.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Chapter 77.32 RCW allows the fish and wildlife commission to set the period of validity for a license and to combine licenses to one license at a fee less than the cost of the combined licenses. Creating new combination fishing licenses will increase participation in all angling activities, improve retention of customers, and grow revenue opportunities for the department.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.
Process for Developing New Rule: Agency study.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Bill Joplin, WDFW Licensing Division, 600 Capitol Way North, Olympia, WA 98501-1091, phone (360) 902-2302, fax (360) 902-2464, e-mail Contact by December 12, 2014.
