On the Move - Oct. 1, 2018

David Sauter, Klickitat County, Wash. commissioner, testifies Sept. 26 before the House Natural Resources Committee in support of three Endangered Species Act bills. The EMPOWERS Act would require federal agencies making listing decisions under the ESA to meaningfully consult with state governments before a listing determination is made. The Endangered Species Transparency and Reasonableness Act would require the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to track, report to Congress, and make available online information on ESA lawsuits and attorney payouts from those lawsuits. The LAMP Act would allow the federal government to enter into cooperative management agreements with state and local governments, tribes and non-federal stakeholders to improve endangered species recovery and habitat management.
