The Rider Roundup: An Overview of Anti-ESA Riders – Day Four
Rider Roundup #4
In Day Four of the #RiderRoundup, we introduce another anti-environment rider- one of many that seek to gut the Endangered Species Act and block its protections for wolves & other imperiled species.
H. Amdt. 628 (H.R. 2822) House Interior Appropriations Bill of 2016; ESA Status Review
This provision blocks ESA protections for listed species if the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service does not complete its 5-year review on time as required by the law. The agencies are often prevented from completing these reviews on time due to lack of funding, or due to competing priorities, thus this amendment would devastate conservation and recovery efforts.
Please TAKE ACTION by urging your representatives to PROTECT the ESA and to oppose any legislation that takes aim at imperiled wildlife!
Thank you to all who have already participated in this action alert!
