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

RIDER ROUNDUP #3

Despite the success and public support of the Endangered Species Act, some members of Congress have introduced dozens of anti-ESA riders that seek gut the ESA and block its protections for wolves & other imperiled species. 

In day three of the #RiderRoundup, we introduce another anti-environment rider- that seek gut the Endangered Species Act and block its protections for wolves and other imperiled species.

H.R. 2822 (Sec 121) House Interior Appropriations Bill of 2016; Gray Wolf

This provision would legislatively order the Secretary of the Interior to end federal protections for gray wolves in Wyoming and the Great Lakes states and thus allow trophy hunting of wolves to resume within these regions. To add insult to injury, Section 121 includes “no judicial review” clauses thus prohibiting any legal challenge.

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!
