State grants commission new power

Written by 

Starting March 1, the executive director of the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission will have the power of implementing an emergency response plan in the event of a wildlife disease outbreak.

An emergency response plan would be developed in consultation with the governor’s office and the state veterinarian. It would allow the commission to quickly regulate public activities in order to contain disease.

The plan would be effective for 90 days, unless an additional rule was adopted within that time to continue the provisions in the emergency plan.
