DEPARTMENT OF

FISH AND WILDLIFE

[ Order 07-113 -- Filed June 8, 2007, 3:30 p.m. , effective June 9, 2007, 12:01 a.m. ]


Effective Date of Rule: June 9, 2007, 12:01 a.m.

Purpose: Amend personal use rules.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 232-28-61900Z; 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: Regulations stipulate that only juveniles under the age of 15 may fish at Mill Pond. In order to hold the fishing derby and for citizens 62 years of age and older to legally fish Mill Pond this regulation is needed. 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Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Comply with Federal Statute: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; Federal Rules or Standards: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; or Recently Enacted State Statutes: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.
