Purpose/Objective of Rule These emergency regulations reflect changes made to the federal framework migratory bird regulations in July 2014. They restrict the take of canvasback and adjust the season end date for scaup in compliance with federal regulations. The Parks and Wildlife Commission FINDS that adoption of this EMERGENCY REGULATION is imperatively necessary to comply with federal law, specifically C.F.R. Title 50, Part 20. Adoption of this emergency regulation will bring the Parks and Wildlife Commissionís regulations into compliance with federal regulations with regard to hunting of canvasback in the Central and Pacific Flyway portions of Colorado and scaup in the Central Flyway portion of Colorado. In addition, the Parks and Wildlife Commission FINDS that the immediate adoption of this EMERGENCY REGULATION is necessary to protect the public welfare- that is it allows the maximum opportunity for waterfowl hunting in Colorado allowed by federal regulations- and that compliance with the generally applicable notice and hearing requirements of the Administrative Procedures Act would prevent the Parks and Wildlife Commission from having an effective regulation in place prior to the start of the 2014 waterfowl season. The Parks and Wildlife Commission has, to the extent it could, given notice of its emergency rule-making and allowed for public participation in the adoption of the emergency regulation. Notice of the proposed emergency rule-making was posted at the state capitol, at the Division of Parks and Wildlife headquarters, Regional Service Centers, and Area Service Centers (area offices), indicating that the Parks and Wildlife Commission would consider the emergency regulation at its regularly scheduled meeting on August 8, 2014, and an opportunity to comment was provided to members of the public at that time.
