Barrasso Introduces Wildlife, Livestock Bill

John Barrasso

U.S. Senator John Barrasso, chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, joined with Committee Ranking Member Tom Carper of Delaware to introduce America’s Conservation Enhancement Act.

The bipartisan legislation will reauthorize or establish several important government wildlife conservation programs. The act helps conserve wildlife and wildlife habitat, addressing the threats of emerging wildlife diseases and invasive species, while also protecting livestock from predators.

Barrasso explains, “The bill establishes a task force to address the growing problem of chronic wasting disease. The legislation will also compensate ranchers and farmers for their losses when livestock are killed by federally protected animals.”

The Senate Committee is scheduled to consider the legislation during their business meeting on Tuesday.
