House Committee Advances 5 Anti-ESA Bills
The House Natural Resources Committee today advanced 5 bills that would severely undermine the Endangered Species Act (ESA).
One bill, H.R. 424, seeks to strip ESA protections for wolves in 4 states to allow wolves to be shot and trapped for trophy. To add insult to injury, the bill prohibits its judicial review thus preventing any legal challenge.
The following 4 anti-ESA bills also advanced in today’s mark-up meeting:
- H.R. 717, Listing Reform Act
- H.R. 1274, State, Tribal, and Local Species Transparency and Recovery Act
- H.R. 2603, SAVES Act
- H.R. 3131, Endangered Species Litigation Reasonableness Act
Please help. Urge your representative to oppose legislation taking aim at imperiled species and the ESA!
