USDA Proposed TB & Brucellosis Rule Public Comment Period Extended
March 14, 2016
From the United States Department of Agriculture Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service:
We are extending the comment period for our proposed rule that would consolidate the domestic regulations governing bovine
tuberculosis and those governing brucellosis and revise the bovine tuberculosis- and brucellosis-related import requirements for cattle and bison to make these requirements clearer and assure that they more effectively mitigate the risk of introduction of these diseases into the United States. This action will allow interested persons additional time to prepare and submit comments.
DATES: The comment period for the proposed rule published on December 16, 2015 is extended. We will consider all comments that we receive on or before May 16, 2016.
