Bill Caption

Relating to the study and approval of lethal pesticides for feral hog control.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

HB 3451 would prohibit the Department of Agriculture from approving the use of a lethal pesticide, including warfarin, for feral hog control unless a scientific study is conducted by a state agency or institution of higher education that recommends the pesticide for use. Such a study would have to include controlled field trials, examine the potential use of lethal pesticides as well as assess economic, agricultural, and environmental impacts. Findings and recommendations would be published in the Texas Register.

Vote Recommendation Notes

HB 3451 neither uplifts nor offends our liberty principles, therefore we remain neutral.
