EMERGENCY RULES

DEPARTMENT OF

FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 00-208 -- Filed October 5, 2000, 4:43 p.m. ]

Date of Adoption: October 5, 2000.

Purpose: Amend personal use rules.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Amending WAC 232-28-621 and 220-56-195.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 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Reasons for this Finding: The Carr Inlet closure is rescinded because the Minter Creek Hatchery has sufficient fish to meet spawning goals, and angling opportunity exists on hatchery coho. There is insufficient time to promulgate 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Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Comply with Federal Statute: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; Federal Rules or Standards: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; or Recently Enacted State Statutes: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted at Request of a Nongovernmental Entity: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted on the Agency's Own Initiative: New 2, Amended 0, Repealed 2.
