U.S. House Passes Bill to Strip Federal Protections for Gray Wolves Nationwide


Science, not Congress, should be the decision-maker when it comes to endangered and threatened species.

Yet the U.S. House just passed H.R. 6784 - a bill seeking to remove federal Endangered Species Act protections for all gray wolves in the Lower 48  with the exception of the critically endangered Mexican gray wolf.

In addition to stripping protections for most gray wolves from the federal endangered species list, this bill prohibits its judicial review thus preventing any legal challenge.

It was approved, 196-180, and now goes to the Senate.
