DEPARTMENT OF

FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 00-127 -- Filed July 26, 2000, 4:38 p.m. , effective August 1, 2000, 12:01 p.m. ]

Date of Adoption: July 25, 2000.

Purpose: Amend personal use rules.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 232-28-61900S; and amending WAC 232-28-619.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: Section 7, chapter 107, Laws of 2000.

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 Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife in cooperation with the Washington Department of Ecology and Resource Management, Inc., is applying the third herbicide treatment to control invasive milfoil through middle sections of the lake. Previous treatments were in June and July. There is insufficient time to promulgate permanent rules.
