The Rider Roundup: An Overview of Anti-ESA Riders – Day Eight

RIDER ROUNDUP #8

In Day Eight of the ‪#‎RiderRoundup‬, we introduce another anti-environment rider -- just one of many that seek to gut the Endangered Species Act and block its protections for wolves & other imperiled species.

H.R. 884 - To direct the Secretary of the Interior to reissue final rules relating to listing of the gray wolf in the Western Great Lakes and Wyoming.

This bill overturns two federal court decisions that reinstated federal protections for the gray wolf in four states thus opening the door to trophy hunting of wolves in the regions.The bill also waives judicial review for the reissuance of rules.

Please TAKE ACTION by urging your representatives to PROTECT the ESA and to oppose any legislation that takes aim at imperiled wildlife!

Thank you to all who have already participated in this action alert!
