[ Filed June 18, 2003, 9:27 a.m. ]

Original Notice.

Preproposal statement of inquiry was filed as WSR 03-09-120.

Purpose: To amend WAC 232-28-332 Game management units (GMUs) boundary descriptions -- Region two.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 77.12.047.

Statute Being Implemented: RCW 77.12.047.

Summary: The goals of the GMU boundary standardization and mapping process were to:

1. Establish GMU boundaries that conform to map-based features, which are clearly identifiable in the field (roads, shorelines, streams, power lines, etc.).

2. Adopt and conform to a single base map to use for defining and adopting GMU boundaries.

3. Improve the accuracy of WDFW's GIS layer for GMU boundaries.

4. Improve the consistency and decrease the complexity of GMU legal descriptions.

The DNR major public lands (MPL) 1:100,000 scale map series was selected as the standard base map for GMU boundary delineation. The public, professional mapmakers, and staff scrutinized the legal language passed in February. Several minor errors were found that should be addressed.

Reasons Supporting Proposal: Corrects errors from the GMU standardization process. Provides recreational deer, elk, bear, and moose hunting opportunity. Directs hunting pressure for those species to the appropriate areas. Helps prevent overharvest of those species.

Name of Agency Personnel Responsible for Drafting and Implementation: Dave Brittell, Assistant Director, Natural Resources Building, Olympia, (360) 902-2504; and Enforcement: Bruce Bjork, Assistant Director, Natural Resources Building, Olympia, (360) 902-2932.

Name of Proponent: Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission, governmental.

Rule is not necessitated by federal law, federal or state court decision.

Explanation of Rule, its Purpose, and Anticipated Effects: This WAC delineates GMU boundaries. The proposed language will clarify and simplify boundary descriptions of GMUs.

Proposal Changes the Following Existing Rules: The proposed language will clarify and simplify boundary descriptions of GMUs.

No small business economic impact statement has been prepared under chapter 19.85 RCW. These rules regulate recreational hunters and do not directly regulate small business.

RCW 34.05.328 does not apply to this rule adoption. Not hydraulics rules.

Hearing Location: Hampton Inn/Fox Hall Meeting Facility, 3985 Bennett Drive, Bellingham, WA 98225, on August 1-2, 2003, at 8:00 a.m.

Assistance for Persons with Disabilities: Contact Susan Yeager by July 25, 2003, TDD (360) 902-2207 or (360) 902-2267.

Submit Written Comments to: Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, Attn: Dave Brittell, 600 Capitol Way North, Olympia, WA 98501-1091, fax (360) 902-2162, by July 14, 2003.
