AGO 1969 NO. 18 >

(1) Such amounts as the board of natural resources deducts from rentals on harbor area or tideland leases under the authority of RCW 79.64.040 are to be subtracted from the total amount paid in determining the net amount of rental proceeds available for disposition under RCW 79.16.180. (2) Where a port district, after the effective date of the amendment to RCW 79.16.180 which was contained in § 2, chapter 105, Laws of 1967, Ex. Sess., constructs improvements on leased harbor areas or tidelands belonging to the state of Washington, but situated within the territorial limits of the district, the district is to receive the entire net rental attributed to the improvements (as before) but is to receive only twenty-five percent of the net rental attributable to the underlying leased area not considering the improvements.
