In response to President Trump’s Executive Order on agricultural biotechnology, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has released an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPR) seeking to establish regulations for the movement of certain animals modified and/or developed through genetic engineering.

According to USDA, they are requesting public comments on “a contemplated regulatory framework that would modernize our system into a scientifically-sound, risk-band, and predictable process that facilitates the development and use of these technologies for U.S. farmers and ranchers under USDA’s authorities.”
