July 1 through August 31, 2009
RCW 15.66.093, in pertinent part, allows the director of the department of agriculture "upon the request of a commodity commission and without compliance with RCW 15.66.070 through 15.66.090, [to] suspend the commission's order or term or provision thereof for a period not to exceed one year, if the director finds that the suspension will tend to effectuate the declared policy of this chapter."
I have determined that suspending the collection of assessments will effectuate a stated policy of chapter 15.66 RCW. I am, therefore, suspending the collection of assessments by the Washington fryer commission for an additional period of two months, effective July 1, 2009, and ending August 31, 2009. Assessment collections would resume September 1, 2009.
Even though a public hearing process is not required under RCW 15.66.093, I ask that notice of this action be published in the Washington state register.
