COMMENTS: Endangered & Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Revisions to the Regulations for Petitions

The Western Governors' Association shared comments on June 30, 2016, with Dan Ashe, Director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and Eileen Sobeck, Assistant Addministrator for NOAA Fisheries, in regard to the rulemaking, "Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Revisions to the Regulations for Petitions."  The comments express the Western Governors' concern with the withdrawal of several important provisions in the initial version of the proposed rule, and recommend the Services reinsert portions of the initial proposed rule that invites greater engagement with states when implementing the Endangered Species Act. Read, download the Comments
