[ Order 709 -- Filed October 15, 2002, 10:02 a.m. ]

Date of Adoption: October 15, 2002.

Purpose: To extend the ending date of the "closed season" from October 15th to October 22, 2002, as authorized in RCW 76.04.005(2).

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 76.04.005(2).

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: Current and predicted weather conditions justify the extension of the "closed season" as defined in RCW 76.04.005(2) until midnight October 22, 2002.
Effective Date of Rule: Immediately.
