Subject of Possible Rule Making: Creating, amending, and repealing WAC affected by legislative changes made by passage of HB 1597 and SB 5306 during the 2017 legislative session.

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: HB 1597 introduces new commercial fish license terms that are not currently defined elsewhere in the fish and wildlife code.

Process for Developing New Rule: Agency study.
