[ Filed December 15, 2000, 9:48 a.m. ]

The Following Sections are Proposed for Expedited Repeal: Entire chapter 16-580 WAC, Farmed Salmon Commission.

Rules Proposed for Expedited Repeal Meet the Following Criteria: Rule is no longer necessary because of changed circumstances.

Any person who objects to the repeal of the rule must file a written objection to the repeal within thirty days after publication of this preproposal statement of inquiry.

Address Your Objection to: Walter Swenson, Washington Department of Agriculture, P.O. Box 42560, Olympia, WA 98504-2560.

Reason the Expedited Repeal of the Rule is Appropriate: The Farmed Salmon Commission was formed in December 1992 under the Agricultural Enabling Act of 1961, chapter 15.65 RCW. In September 1999, the board of the Farm [Farmed] Salmon Commission filed written application with the director of agriculture to terminate the commission because the activities of the commission could no longer effectuate the policies of chapter 15.65 RCW.

The director of agriculture has determined in accordance with RCW 15.65.190 that all of the affected producers of farmed salmon with 100% of the production have assented to the termination of the commission.
