Western Governors’ Association Seeks to Dismantle ESA
With most of Washington focused on fights over presidential tweets, healthcare, and Russian meddling, lawmakers are taking controversial steps to weaken the Endangered Species Act.
The Western Governors’ Association endorsed a policy resolution this week that aims to dismantle the Endangered Species Act to benefit their core constituencies: agriculture and energy.
Association chairman Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead is leading the charge in portraying the important federal law as being bad for business and harmful to the economy.
While the Western Governors’ Association, Congressional leaders, and lobbyists are speaking for major corporations and special interests, YOUR individual voice as a voting American counts just as much.
Please urge your Congressional representatives to preserve the spirit and integrity of this effective federal law and to oppose any legislation that takes aim at ESA and imperiled wildlife!
