Media Advisory: Special Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission Meeting on CWD

AUSTIN— The Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission will hold a special meeting on proposed Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) rules related to Chronic Wasting Disease, specifically regulating the artificial movement of deer under TPWD permits, including Triple T (trap, transfer and transplant), DMP (deer management permit), TTP (trap, transport and process) and deer breeder permits.

At its regular meeting last month, Commission Chairman T. Dan Friedkin postponed formal action on the proposed rules to allow members of the Commission more time to review the department’s proposal and meet with additional stakeholders. Members of the public are invited to attend this special meeting and give their input on the proposed rules. Each speaker will be allowed three minutes to address the Commission.
