Commission Delays Vote on Animal Tracking
Thursday, February 16th, 2006 at 10 A.M. the Texas Animal Health Commission (TAHC) public meeting in Austin at the Red Lion Hotel,
Report from Tony Manasseri on the meeting yesterday TAHC Texas Animal Health Commission in Austin.
The meeting to adopt the proposed rules for the National Animal Identification System in Texas was held in Austin yesterday. For the first time in 10 years the Texas animal Health Commission, who chaired the meeting, moved the location to a hotel ballroom. "we normally hold our meetings in a room that can hold about 10 people" said chairman Richard Traylor. They received about 700 write-in comments before the Feb 6th deadline which led them to believe there would be a big turnout.
The public input session started at 10:00am and finished at 4:00pm. Now is was the Commissioners time to talk. There was a quick vote taken and 100 % of the commissioners agreed to postpone the decision to implement the Texas NAIS until next meeting. They said they had no idea there was this much opposition to the system and needed to go back to the drawing boards and review and probably amend their original proposals.
They were clear to add that NAIS is not dead and urged us to write our elected officials here in Texas as well as those in Washington. Don't forget to include Rick Perry.
