The statewide public disaster affecting life, health, property, and the public peace involving the fishing industry, and recognized and addressed by Executive Order EO 84-05, is a disaster that affects numerous fishing groups. Among them are licensed Puget Sound reefnetters and Grays Harbor gillnetters.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, John Spellman, Governor of the state of Washington, by virtue of the authority vested in me, find that licensed Puget Sound reefnetters and Grays Harbor gillnetters, along with commercial trollers and charter salmon vessel owners, are adversely affected by the emergency conditions described in Executive Order EO 84-05.
Therefore, I hereby proclaim that the state of emergency described in Executive Order EO 84-05 is applicable likewise to Puget Sound reefnetter and Grays Harbor gillnetter license holders, and also hereby order that said reefnetter and gillnetter license holders shall be accorded the same relief and consideration made applicable to commercial troll and salmon charter vessel license holders by Executive Order 84-05.
have hereunto set
my hand and caused the seal of the State of
Washington to be affixed at Olympia this
20th day of July A.D., Nineteen hundred and eighty-four.
Secretary of State
