I am against this proposal by the FDA. It will led to the discontinuance of dead animal disposal service because of the inability of contractors to remove the SRM and classification of animals above or below the 30 month of age time frame. There is no need for additional feed restrictions based on current compliance with existing rules. The FDA needs to conduct an environmental assessment of the animal disposal issue created by this proposed regulation and the associated animal and human health concenrs created by improper disposal and the increase cost associated by such action. WE ALREADY HAVE TOO MANY UNFUNDED MANDATES AT THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT LEVEL. THIS IS JUST ONE MORE FEDERAL RULE THAT WILL HURT LOCAL GOVERNMENT.
