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:
Section 4-32-7 authorizes the Department to enact meat and poultry inspection rules.
Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:
The Department has not received any comments supporting or opposing this rule.
Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:
The department operates an "equal to" status program with the federal government. These rules are needed to maintain the "equal to" status and receive 50% reimbursement for the costs of the program. The state meat inspection program enables small meat plants to be operated in rural parts of the state and provide a services to the citizens that wouldn't be available without the program. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
