Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 220-56-33000P; and amending WAC 220-56-330.

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 emergency regulation is necessary to maintain allocation objectives in Marine Areas 8-1, 8-2 and 9. There is insufficient time to promulgate permanent rules.
