Committee to Hold Endangered Species Act Hearing
Focused on defining species conservation success

WASHINGTON, D.C., May 28, 2013 - The House Natural Resources Committee will hold a Full Committee oversight hearing entitled “Defining Species Conservation Success: Tribal, State and Local Stewardship vs. Federal Courtroom Battles and Sue-and-Settle Practices” on Tuesday, June 4th. The hearing, the first of a series expected this Congress, will showcase the positive species conservation efforts being undertaken at ‘on-the-ground’ levels when compared to the seemingly never-ending cycle of Endangered Species Act (ESA) litigation.

“Many states, tribes and local communities are effectively implementing conservation efforts to help species. Those closest to the species know firsthand how to protect species better than distant bureaucrats and litigious groups who often hinder the ESA through lawsuits and closed-door settlements,said Natural Resources Committee Chairman Doc Hastings. “This hearing will provide an opportunity to hear what is working well right now at the state, tribal, and local levels as opposed to ESA-related litigation that divert time and resources away from actual recovery efforts.”
