8 CCR 1205-3-3 - Statements of Basis and Purpose
Current through Register Vol. 45, No. 6, March 25, 2022
These rules are adopted pursuant to § 35-41-101(3), C.R.S. (1997) and § 35-53-130, HB 98-1101.
The purposes of these rules are to establish the annual transportation permit fee and to define the requirements of an annual transportation permit.
These rules are proposed for adoption by the State Board of Stock Inspection Commissioners pursuant to their authority under §§ 35-41-101(3) and 35-53-130, C.R.S.
The purpose of this rulemaking is to remove alternative livestock from the rule; update fees; and update language.
Factual and Policy Issues
Since this rule was initially adopted in 1998, the handling of alternative livestock has changed dramatically because of the concern regarding chronic wasting disease (CWD). As a matter of practice, alternative livestock cannot travel without authorization from the State Veterinarians Office working in conjunction with Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) and with brand inspectors. A blanket travel authorization that includes alternative livestock is inappropriate.
The proposed fee changes mirror the fee changes in 8 CCR 1205-6"State Board of Stock Inspection Fees" adopted on October 15, 2014, effective January 1, 2015. Updating the fees will bring this rule into conformity with what has been in effect and collected since January 1, 2015.
