Commission Agenda Item No. 6
Permits to Sell Nongame Fish
June 1999

I. Discussion: Staff is proposing amendments to sections §§57.381 and 57.382 concerning Permits to Sell Non-game Fish. The proposed changes are intended to simplify the permitting and reporting procedures.

Proposed amendments to §57.381 will require that all permits expire on December 31st of the year issued, while amendments to section '57.382 will require annual reports to be submitted to the department by the 10th day of December, and require monthly reports to be maintained at the permittee’s address for one year.

The proposed new rules were published in the April 30, 1999 issue of the Texas Register (24 TexReg 3297). Staff will address public comments concerning the proposed new rules prior to the June Commission Meeting.

II. Recommendation: The staff recommends the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission adopt the following motion:

"The Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission adopts the proposed amendments and new rules concerning Permits to Sell Nongame Fish as shown in Exhibit A."
