Title: Livestock Groups Applaud Proposed Updates to ESA Implementation

WASHINGTON (July 19, 2018) – Ethan Lane, Executive Director of the Public Lands Council (PLC) and the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) Federal Lands, today released the following statement in response to the Fish and Wildlife Service's proposed updates to the Endangered Species Act (ESA) implementation regulations:

“We are pleased to see the administration taking such a serious and measured approach to modernizing the regulatory side of the Endangered Species Act.  While we are still reviewing the details of these proposed rules, they are focused on some of the most impactful areas of current ESA implementation and could consequently provide tremendous relief to ranchers once finalized.  We look forward to working with Secretary Zinke and his team on this effort.”
