11, 2006. Synopsis and Preliminary Analysis of Initiative 933
This memorandum provides a synopsis of Initiative 933 (I-933) and
a summary of analyses conduced by and available from state agencies
and other organizations concerning potential impacts on habitat protection.
The draft Puget Sound Salmon Recovery Plan submitted to NOAA Fisheries
in June 2005 identifies the need to take a proactive stance to protect
existing physical habitat and habitat forming processes to ensure
the recovery of Chinook salmon. This memorandum was requested by the
Recovery Council at its meeting on July 27, 2006 to assess the potential
impact of the Initiative on the implementation of the Recovery Plan.
