Federal agencies to consult with wildlife biologists

Posted by karmalily on March 4, 2009

Remember in December 2008, with just one month left in office, when George Bush issued a new rule to federal agencies letting them skip meeting with wildlife biologists to determine whether or not a project would damage habitat to endangered or threatened species? Well, even though that rule is not officially off the tables just yet, President Barack Obama has suspended it while asking the secretaries of commerce and interior to take another look at Bush’s laws and decide if there should be a new law (and yeah, there should be).

It feels good to have a president who doesn’t just completely ignore the environment. I hope we see a plethora of new laws and rules put into effect by this administration in relation to better environmental standards.
