FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 06-99 -- Filed May 10, 2006, 4:36 p.m. , effective May 19, 2006, 12:01 a.m. ]


Effective Date of Rule: May 19, 2006, 12:01 a.m.

Purpose: Amend personal use fishing rules.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 232-28-61900Y; 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 youth fishing event is usually held at Wapato Lake. However, it was recently closed to public access for health concerns and the event had to be moved to Bradley Lake. This regulation is necessary to assure a safe and successful fishing event for juvenile anglers at Bradley Lake. 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Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Comply with Federal Statute: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; Federal Rules or Standards: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; or Recently Enacted State Statutes: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

Number of Sections Adopted at Request of a Nongovernmental Entity: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

Date Adopted: May 10, 2006.
