EMERGENCY RULES

DEPARTMENT OF

FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 08-208 -- Filed August 19, 2008, 3:47 p.m. , effective August 19, 2008, 3:47 p.m. ]


Effective Date of Rule: Immediately.

Purpose: Amend hunting rules.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Amending WAC 232-28-295.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 77.12.047, 77.12.020, 77.12.570, 77.12.210.

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: When developing landowner hunting permit season recommendations, the department intends to have season dates that are mutually agreeable with the landowner and that benefit the public. The current rule does not meet this intent. Since the time requirements for notice and opportunity to comment on adoption of a permanent rule are too long for a mutually agreeable season date to be established, an emergency change to WAC 232-28-295 is needed. The amendment will serve the greater good of the landowner, and the hunting public.
