Subject of Possible Rule Making: The department is considering rule changes relating to the aquatic lands enhancement account (ALEA) application period, WAC 220-130-040 Review and selection process.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 77.04.012, 77.12.047, and 77.100.060.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The proposed rule change would allow a biennial application period. A biennial period rather than an annual application period is needed to reduce staff workload and program costs associated with conducting an annual application review process.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.
Process for Developing New Rule: Agency study.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Joshua Nicholas, WDFW Fish Program, 600 Capitol Way North, Olympia, WA 98501-1091, phone (360) 902-2685, fax (360) 902-2183, e-mail
