EMERGENCY RULES

DEPARTMENT OF

FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 02-93 -- Filed April 30, 2002, 5:00 p.m. ]

Date of Adoption: April 30, 2002.

Purpose: Amend fishing rules.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Amending WAC 220-16-780 and 220-16-790.

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: These rules are needed to adjust boundaries. These rules will be recommended for adoption by the Fish and Wildlife Commission in August 2002 as permanent rules. There is insufficient time to promulgate permanent rules.

Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Comply with Federal Statute: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; Federal Rules or Standards: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; or Recently Enacted State Statutes: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted at Request of a Nongovernmental Entity: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.
