EAS Changes Called For

September 6, 2013 State of Wyoming No Comments
Lummis

A group of Wyomingites participating in this week’s House Natural Resources Committee hearing in Casper told the committee that wildlife management decisions must be made using sound science, in an open and transparent manner, and not as result of courtroom deals.  They told the group that the ESA’s recovery rate hovers around 1%, an unacceptable failure for a law touted as America’s premier wildlife protection statute.  Wyoming’s US Representative Cynthia Lummis says, “The ESA is not supposed to operate like the Hotel California, where species are listed anytime you like, but they can never leave.”  Lummis says recovery of species in true peril must be our priority.  Lummis says the Natural Rescources Committee is currently exploring ways to reauthorize the Endangered Species Act in a way that can make it work better.  Participants in the hearing told the committee that states are relegated to a subcontractor role, often fielding the man-power and paying much of the bill, but excluded from the most important decisions about management.

  • GPS will sometimes lead you to astray - August 29, 2014
    At the risk of sounding like I’ve been watching too much Top Gear, I need to go off on a bit of a rant right now. The good folks at Nissan let me drive a Titan for two full months, which was really nice of them. And it’s done a pretty good job of filling […]
