Rule R68-18

Quarantine Pertaining to Karnal Bunt

Five-Year Notice of Review and Statement of Continuation

DAR File No.: 34412
Filed: 02/08/2011 01:00:21 PM

NOTICE OF REVIEW AND STATEMENT OF CONTINUATION

Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

Subsection 4-2-2(1)(k)(ii) directs the Department to establish and enforce "quarantines", an action that can only be accomplished by this rule.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

No comments have been received in support or against this rule.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

Karnal bunt is still a national issue in grain commodities. Utah is free from Karnal bunt and is able to export small grains for international and foreign markets. Without this rule, the Division of Plant Industry would not be able to enforce any areas that maybe infested with the disease and marketing options would be limited. This rule needs to be continued.
