Bush Administration to Loosen Rules on Endangered Species

Posted by karmalily on August 28, 2008

Via USA Today:

The Bush administration is providing insufficient time for public comment as it seeks to loosen rules protecting endangered species…

an administration proposal… would allow federal agencies approving or funding dams, highways and other projects to decide for themselves – without input from government experts – whether endangered species are likely to be harmed.

Bush and his anti-Earth administration are obviously trying to pass this proposal without a lot of media attention and without giving people and organizations time to do much about it. Fortunately, members of congress, along with conservation groups, are calling for additional time. Let’s hope it comes out on our side, because we know that those federal agencies responsible for such major construction projects are not actually going to stop one of their projects because of an endangered animal.
