AS 16.05.258

Editor's note: 5 AAC 01.599 took effect May 22, 1991 as an emergency regulation. On May 30, 1991, the Superior Court found the regulation invalid as an emergency regulation. Therefore, it was not published in Register 118 (July 1991). The regulation subsequently was filed as a "regular" regulation.

At its November 8 - 20, 1992 meeting, the Board of Fisheries readopted 5 AAC 01.599(1) , (2)(A), (2)(B), (2)(C)(i), (2)(C)(iv), (2)(C)(v), and (3) in their entirety without change, under ch. 1, SSSLA 1992 (the 1992 subsistence law), which repealed and reenacted AS 16.05.258 .
