Update Volume


Update Issue


The Kansas Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism Commission proposed amendments to Kan. Admin. Regs. §§115-15-1 and 115-15-2. The proposed amendments would list the cylindrical papershell mussel as endangered, remove the Arkansas darter from threatened status, and change the designation of two nongame species by adding the Arkansas darter to and removing the Wabash pigtoe mussel from the list of species in need of conservation. A public hearing will be held November 14, 2019, and comments are due that same date. See https://www.kssos.org/pubs/register/2019/Vol_38_No_33_August_15_2019_pages_1013-1030.pdf (pp. 1023-24).
