North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission

Proposed Regulations

 

The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission has the authority, granted by the Legislature, to create regulations called “rules” which although not state law,have the force of law.  The complete set of rules under the power of the Commission can be found here. The handout From Proposal to Regulation describes the Commission's rule-making procedures. Below is a list of the rules the Commission is currently proposing to change, a description of each and avenues for comment. The procedure for subjecting a proposed rule to legislative review is located below the table.

We welcome your feedback. Questions may be sent to regulations@ncwildlife.org.

15A NCAC 10H .0800 Falconry

Description and Justification

These rules were part of the 2016 periodic review.  All subsections of 10H .0800 were determined to be “necessary without substantive public interest”, and therefore are not required to be readopted.  However, these rules are proposed for amendment to make minor updates to language and references.

15A NCAC 10H .1000 Taxidermy

Description and Justification

These rules are part of the 2016 periodic review.  Though only subsection 10H .1004 is required to be readopted (determined to be “necessary with substantive public interest after receiving two public comments with merit), changes are proposed for all subsections, as these rules have not been amended since the 1980s.  Additionally, it was necessary to update portions of this rule to match regulatory changes made in 10B .0127.

15A NCAC 10B .0209 Wild Turkey

Description and Justification

Proposed amendments to this rule include technical changes to remove the requirement that the licensed adult accompanying youth during Spring Youth Only Wild Turkey Season, be at least 21 years of age. The current rule text conflicts with G.S. 113-274(c)(3c) which requires the adult companion be at least 18 years old.  Amending this rule will make all accompanying adult regulations consistent.
