The Commissioner is authorized to promulgate regulations, quarantining this State,
or any portion thereof, and governing the storage or other handling in the quarantined
areas of regulated articles and the movement of regulated articles into or from such
areas, when he shall determine that such action is necessary, or reasonably appears
necessary, to prevent or retard the spread of the boll weevil. The Commissioner is also authorized to promulgate regulations governing the movement
of regulated articles from other states or portions thereof into this State when such
state is known to be infested with the boll weevil. Before quarantining any area, the Commissioner shall hold a public hearing under
such rules as he shall determine, at which hearing any interested party may appear
and be heard either in person or by attorney: Provided, however, the Commissioner
may promulgate regulations, imposing a temporary quarantine for a period not to exceed
60 days, during which time a public hearing, as herein provided, shall be held if
it appears that a quarantine for more than 60 days will be necessary to prevent or
retard the spread of the boll weevil. It shall be unlawful for any person to store or handle any regulated article in
a quarantined area, or to move into or from a quarantined area any regulated article,
except under such conditions as may be prescribed by the regulations promulgated by
