I spoke to USDA TODAY!

As of 8:55 Monday morning I just got off the phone with Dr. Morris of the USDA in Riverdale , MD. She stated to me that importing salted hides into the USA is still legal and any rumor of that stopping should be nipped in the bud because it is false. So if we have any questions I think it would be wise to call the USDA direct and get right to the source. The # to the USDA is (301)734-3277.

i haven't seen anything about it being illegal; only about the permitting and inspection process to allow importing.
My local inspection vet is supposed to call today; I will discuss it with him.
