Notice of Intent to Adopt Rules and Regulations


Board of Agriculture Weed and Pest Rules - Chapter 42 - Wyoming Weed and Pest Control Act

and

Board of Agriculture Weed and Pest Rules - Chapter 44 - Certification & Regulations for Weed and Pest Supervisors

The Wyoming Department of Agriculture, Technical Services Section proposes amending the Wyoming Board of Agriculture Chapter 44 Certification Rules & Regulations for Weed and Pest Supervisors. To comply with the Governor’s mandate to review and revise rules and regulations in all of state government, the Department of Agriculture is proposing to amend Chapter 44. Other changes have been made to Chapter 44 in order to conform these rules to the Secretary of State's required format and to update references to Wyoming statutes.

In 2011, the Wyoming Legislature passed House Bill No. HB0015 amending the Wyoming Weed and Pest Control Act, Wyo. Stat. §§ 11-5-101 through 11-5-119. The legislation allowed for an emergency declaration or designation of a weed or pest by the Director of the Department of Agriculture. The recommended changes to Chapter 42 define the process the Director will follow when making an emergency declaration or designation of a weed or pest. The Board of Agriculture is also removing, and amending language within the Chapter pursuant to the Governor’s Rules Reduction Initiative.

Wyoming Statute § 11-5-119 provides the Board of Agriculture the authority to promulgate, adopt and publish rules and regulations in accordance with the Wyoming Administrative Procedures Act at Wyo. Stat. §§ 16-3-101 through 16-3-115 for the purpose of carrying out the intent of this act. Wyoming Statute § 11-5-119 requires the Board of Agriculture to receive approval from a majority of the Weed and Pest Districts to promulgate new rules. The Wyoming Weed and Pest Council as defined by Wyo. Stat. § 11-5-102(a)(xxii) has reviewed these changes and unanimously voted to approve them at their October 31st, 2013 regular meeting.

Federal Wolf Decision Impacts Agriculture PDF Print E-mail

A ruling Tuesday by a federal district court judge in Washington, D.C. places gray wolves in Wyoming under federal protection. The Wyoming Game and Fish Department notifies residents and hunters that this suspends the take of gray wolves in Wyoming. The judge’s decision also impacts year-round hunting in the predator area and landowners protecting livestock and pets.

The State of Wyoming anticipates filing a motion to stay this decision this week.

“There are many positives in Judge Jackson’s decision. However, she held that Wyoming’s plan was not sufficiently formalized to support the Fish and Wildlife Service’s 2012 rule allowing limited take of gray wolves. We believe an emergency rule can remedy this, and I have instructed the Wyoming Game and Fish Department and the Attorney General to proceed accordingly,” Governor Matt Mead said.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department has suspended all sales of gray wolf licenses and will establish a system to refund hunters who have already purchased a 2014 gray wolf license. Hunting in the trophy game area in northwest Wyoming scheduled to begin in October is suspended pending the outcome of the motion for stay.

“The Game and Fish Department believes in our sound management of wolves over the last two years. Today, we want all wolf hunters and landowners to know that the take of wolves in Wyoming – hunting and lethal take provisions in Wyoming statute – are suspended because of the federal court ruling,” said Scott Talbott, WGFD director.

If changes to the status of gray wolf hunting and other lethal take arise, they will be immediately announced by the State of Wyoming.
