[ Order 01-09 -- Filed January 25, 2001, 3:04 p.m. , effective February 1, 2001, 12:01 a.m. ]

Date of Adoption: January 25, 2001.

Purpose: Amend personal use rules.

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

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 nontribal sport allotment of 298 wild winter steelhead is anticipated to be taken by January 31, 2001. Harvestable hatchery steelhead remain available for harvest. There is insufficient time to promulgate permanent rules.
