Texas Passes Interim CWD Response Rules

Last week, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission unanimously passed the Interim Chronic Wasting Disease Response Rules. The Texas Deer Association fought against adoption of the rules, but TDA was successful in securing a timeline and sunset date to revisit and possibly rewrite the rules. These sunset for the rules will be Aug. 31, 2016.

TDA Executive Director Patrick Tarlton, as well as many other Texas breeders, provided testimony online and in-person.
