Full Committee to Hold Oversight Hearing on Endangered Species Act Litigation


WASHINGTON, D.C., November 28, 2011 - On Tuesday, December 6th the Natural Resources Committee will hold a Full Committee oversight hearing on “The Endangered Species Act: How Litigation is Costing Jobs and Impeding True Recovery Efforts.”

“This hearing is the first of many that the Natural Resources Committee will hold to examine both the strengths and weaknesses of the Endangered Species Act. It has been over two decades since the ESA was last reauthorized and it’s the responsibility of Congress to undertake a thoughtful analysis of the law to see what improvements could be made to ensure that it works for both species and people,” said Natural Resources Committee Chairman Doc Hastings. “The goal of the ESA is to conserve key domestic species, yet it’s being used by special interest groups to file lawsuits and drain resources away from real recovery efforts. This hearing will specifically look at the impacts of ESA litigation on jobs, our economy and species recovery.”

WHAT: Full Committee Oversight Hearing on “The Endangered Species Act: How Litigation is Costing Jobs and Impeding True Recovery Efforts.”

Witnesses to be announced.

WHEN: Tuesday, December 6, 2011
10:00 A.M.

WHERE: 1324 Hearing Room in the Longworth House Office Building
