More than 100 organizations call on Congress to keep toxic wildlife legislation out of year-end spending bill
S. 2561 would eliminate the essential requirement that agencies re-initiate programmatic consultations on any aspects of the Forest Service’s land management plans (LMPs) or BLM’s resource management plans (RMPs) for newly listed species and new critical habitat designations or when new information shows land management activities could harm listed species.
The following statement in response is from Andrew Rothman, Director of WildEarth Guardian’s Wild Places Program:
“The idea that we remove processes that help ensure newly listed Endangered species and their habitats are considered for protection during Forest Service or BLM actions, while in the midst of a biodiversity crisis, is an effort to sidestep the duties of agency officials to uphold the ESA.”
