FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 06-139 -- Filed June 15, 2006, 3:58 p.m. , effective June 16, 2006 ]


Effective Date of Rule: June 16, 2006.

Purpose: Amend personal use fishing rules.

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

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 return fishery back to permanent rules on June 16, 2006. There is insufficient time to promulgate permanent rules.
