APHIS Reopens Comment Period Regarding Importation of Orchids in Growing Media From Taiwan

http://www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=APHIS-2014-0041-0048

Summary:

We are reopening the comment period for our proposed rule that would amend the regulations governing the importation of plants and plant products to add orchid plants of the genus Oncidium from Taiwan to the list of plants that may be imported into the United States in an approved growing medium, subject to specified growing, inspection, and certification requirements.  This action will allow interested persons additional time to prepare and submit comments.  We will consider all comments that we receive on or before March 18, 2015.
