The Texas Animal Health Commission (TAHC) has announced that its chronic wasting disease rule proposal, originally published for comment on Dec. 30, 2016, has been republished in the Texas Register, due to editing errors.

According to TAHC, the original rule publication in the Texas Register omitted subsections (f) - (h). TAHC has extended the comment period, and the deadline for submissions on the proposed rule is Feb. 20. TAHC noted that the rule proposal posted on the TAHC website on Dec. 30, 2016, has been updated and is the correct version of the proposal.

Complete details of the rule proposal are available on the TAHC website at tahc.texas.gov/regs/proposals.html.
