APHIS reopens public comment period

In April 2013, the USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) proposed a rule in the Federal Register to restructure regulations governing the importation of plants for planting.

            APHIS has reopened the comment period for an additional 30 days for comments on their proposed framework for integrated pest risk management measures.

            For more information on the proposed rule or to post a comment visit the APHIS website.

            Comments will be accepted on or before January 30, 2014.
