Endangered Species Under Attack from Congress!

10.14.2005
First Step Already Taken Against the Endangered Species Act

The House of Representatives voted 229 to 193 to approve legislation which, if it becomes law, will eliminate the requirement for "critical habitat" for endangered species.

To add insult to injury, the bill passed by the House last week will make the government pay developers and polluters not to kill publicly owned fish and wildlife. This is detrimental on so many levels, and gives big business way too much control over our public lands.

Sign the petition to Senator Lincoln Chafee (R-RI), on the Fisheries, Wildlife and Water Subcommittee telling him that you support protection for endangered species such as the American bald eagle, the bighorn sheep and the grizzly bear and ask him to oppose this bill in the Senate.
