DEPARTMENT OF

FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 02-88 -- Filed May 1, 2002, 1:49 p.m. ]

Date of Adoption: April 30, 2002.

Purpose: Amend personal use rules.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 232-28-61900A; and amending WAC 232-28-619.

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: This regulation is necessary to eliminate premature harvest of catchable trout dedicated to the "Fishing Kids" event that will be stocked on May 3, 2002. There is insufficient time to promulgate permanent rules.
