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: An emergency rule is needed to open Failor Lake which will allow boys and girls fourteen and younger to participate in a fishing derby hosted by the Grays Harbor Poggie Club. There [is] insufficient time to adopt permanent rules.
