Round and Round we go...down and down they go...
|Don't like that Endangered Species Act? Well, just re-write it!|
This disgusts me. Noting that "property rights" are a big deal right now, the Endangered Species Act is in a big re-write process to "protect property rights". No. Nice try but, read the fine print.
"It is a drastic mistake to eliminate the provisions that have to do with the protection of habitat for endangered species," said Rep. Jim Saxton, R-N.J. "It is my opinion that the Endangered Species Act is 99 percent about protecting critical habitat."
Please there are many species who will disappear off the face of the earth if not protected. Yes, yes, we have our own annoying little California Tiger Salamander issue, but everyone wants it to continue to exist. And property owners, local officials, as well as Fish and Game have their heads together to solve the problem in a way that works for everyone.
Don't gut something that works because it takes some cooperation!
