Could This Be The Obamacare of Texas Agriculture?
Date:4/21/2017

Federal mandate, fines, controversy, questions about constitutionality and repeal…. sound familiar? These are five common elements between the Obamacare program that most Republicans love to hate and Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Millers new feral hog control program which uses Warfarin poison to kill hogs.

Like Obamacare, the Miller program centers upon a federal mandate. Poisoned hog carcasses must be disposed of when they are found regardless of who poisoned them. That means that according to the product label, a Texas rancher will be required by federal law to dispose of the dead hogs even if his neighbor was the one who put out the Warfarin.

Like Obamacare, the Miller program would impose fines in cases of non-compliance. For instance, handling a poisoned hog without wearing the proper gloves could potentially warrant a fine by the Texas DOA.

Like Obamacare, the Miller program is controversial as it appears to help some at the expense of others. A rancher who maintains a system of creeks and lakes to provide water for livestock might be the recipient of the hogs that have been poisoned by his neighboring farmer who is losing money because of the crop damage that feral hogs cause.

Like Obamacare, the program is considered to be unconstitutional by some. Those who do not wish their property to be used as a burial ground for the poisoned hogs, consider the program to be unconstitutional as it relates to their property rights.

And finally, like Obamacare the issue of repeal is still in question. Under pressure from many farmers and the Texas Farm Bureau, Texas Agricultural Commissioner Sid Miller is pushing to make the program work while the Texas House is pushing back with House Bill 3451 which recently passed by a large margin requiring field tests to be conducted possibly placing the Miller program on the path to repeal.

The program might even be called... Millercare.
