Is commercial collecting of herps illegal now in Texas?

The regular license lets you collect up to 6 individuals of any one non-protected species and up to 25 individuals of all non-protected species combined.

You used to be able to also buy an additional license that would let you commercial collect and exceed the 6/25 bag limit rule. Now I hear that additional license just lets you exceed the 6/25 bag limit rule but it doesn't let you sell anything. Is that true? If so, is there some other license you have to buy now or is there just no way to legally commercial collect in Texas anymore? If so, are there exceptions for rattlesnakes taken for roundups, skins or food and/or certain turtles taken for food?

For the record I have no intention of commercial collecting, I just like to stay abreast of the laws. If it's true that there's no provision to commercial collect in Texas anymore I would be suprized that something that big could happen without any noise.

Also for the record I am not against commercial collection as long as it's legal and sustainable. It's just not something I would usually want to do, although I suppose if it were legal I might make an exception for a friend who just wanted a pair or two of something.
