Sno-Parks stay status quo

WINTER SPORTS — Disregard the previous post about Washington reconsidering Sno-Park permit reciprocity with Oregon.  In fact, disregard a lot of proposed rule changes in state government for the time being.

The Governor’s office issued an order today to suspend non-critical rule development through 2011. For details, see Jim Camden’s Spin Control item:  Gregoire: Quit making some of those rules.  

 

Could this postpone planned changes in fishing and hunting rules?  I’m not sure yet, and I’m not the only one.

 

Fish and Wildlife Department directors are in a meeting with other state agency officials in Olympia this afternoon sorting out what the directive means to their operating procedures.

 

Ironically, the rule change being considered to drop reciprocal agreements for Sno-Park permits was geared to generating more income to the impoverished State Parks and Recreation Department.
