Scrapie comment period extended for another 30 days
ASI has confirmed that a 30-day extension has been approved for the filing of comments on the proposed changes to the scrapie regulation. Comments will be considered through Dec. 9.
The formal notice extending the comment period will be in the Federal Register next week.
ASI has long supported the eradication of scrapie from the United States and appreciates the work of APHIS, state animal health officials, markets, dealers, producers, equipment manufacturers and others who have made contributions to the progress that has been made towards eradication. In general, ASI believes the amendments proposed by APHIS have been carefully considered and are appropriate.
ASI’s detailed comments are available at http://www.sheepusa.org/IssuesPrograms_AnimalHealth_Scrapie .
Industry is encouraged to offer comments to this proposed rule and are welcome to use all or parts of ASI’s draft comments in doing so.
Comments can be submitted at http://www.regulations.gov/#!docketDetail;D=APHIS-2007-0127 .
