TPWD Accepting Online Public Comment on Regulations Proposals

AUSTIN, Texas — In addition to presenting proposed hunting and fishing regulations at dozens of public hearings taking place around the state, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department is looking to interact with constituents through an online public comment survey.

Annually, TPWD recommends adjustments to hunting and fishing rules for resource management needs and increased recreational opportunity. Part of the process involves gathering public comment, which helps the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission in its final decision making on March 26.

The public may get involved in the process by attending one of the 46 public hearings taking place, providing comment online or by contacting TPWD directly.

The public comments section is accessible from the TPWD home page and includes summaries of some 34 potential amendments to the state’s hunting and fishing regulations, with opportunities to provide input on each proposal.

A complete preamble of the proposals can be found in the Feb. 20 issue of the Texas Register.

The public comment period runs through March 25. Public comment may be made by writing to Public Comment, TPWD, 4200 Smith School Rd., Austin, TX 78744, by calling toll free 800-792-1112 or email
