Florida Regulations Tracked by PIJAC May 15, 2017
State: Florida
4 Regulations
Agency:  Florida - Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
Type:  Proposed
Description:  The Commission’s imperiled species rules were significantly revised in 2010, and as a result, all then listed species that had not had their status recently reviewed were evaluated against the listing criteria. Based on these evaluations, staff made listing status recommendations to the Commission. The Commission approved these recommendation in June 2011. However, as specified by rule, any listing status changes were not to be implemented until a management plan for the species was approved. The Imperiled Species Management Plan (ISMP) covering these species is being approved concurrently with this rule revision. This revision includes reclassifying 23 species from Species of Special Concern to State designated Threatened and adding them to the Florida Endangered and Threatened Species List, and reclassifying two species from State-designated Threatened to unlisted and removing them from the list. Additionally, during development of the ISMP it was determined that some activities or conduct which may cause some minor amount of take may be authorized in the management plan because they are known to benefit species or not to cause significant impacts to species. Under the current rule, these activities or conduct would be a violation of the rule even though the overall impact is beneficial. Proposed revisions to the rule allow for such activities or conduct. Finally, the rule title is being revised to more clearly label the content of the rule.
