Natural Resources
(CR 04-078)
An order affecting chs. NR 10 and 19, relating to the regulation of baiting and feeding to control and manage chronic wasting disease and bovine tuberculosis. Effective 5-1-05.
Summary of Final Regulatory Flexibility Analysis
The proposed revisions to chs. NR 10 and 19, which regulate baiting and feeding of deer, impose no compliance or reporting requirements for small businesses, nor are there any design or operational standards contained within the proposed rule. However, prior to April 2002, recreational feeding of deer was unregulated, and now that restrictions on recreational feeding are in place, it may impact the profits of small businesses.
In accordance with s. 227.114, Stats., the Department has considered the possible implications of these rules on small business; however, under the authority of s. 227.114 (3), Stats., any modification of the rules would undermine the effectiveness of the rule. In addition, the Department weighed the economic impact to the state of a potential collapse of the deer herd, which is an increased risk under continued baiting and feeding, against the economic burden that is placed on feed mills in the state with the baiting and feeding ban.
Summary of Comments by Legislative Review Committees
The proposed rules were reviewed by the Assembly Committee on Natural Resources and the Senate Committee on Natural Resources and Transportation. On February 2, 2005, the Assembly Committee on Natural Resources held a public hearing. As a result of the hearing, the Department was requested to make a modification that would allow a person to place, use or hunt over a maximum of 2 gallons per 40 acres. This 2 gallons may be placed at one site, or the bait could be placed in a series of smaller sites around the property. A similar change was proposed for the regulations of feeding. The proposed modification would allow no more than 2 gallons to be placed per owner-occupied residence or business, rather than just one feed site per residence or business.
The Natural Resources Board adopted the suggested modifications.
