Wolf Delisting Bill Pt 3
NEWHOUSE ... "These efforts to protect our wildlife species must be based on sound science and an open and transparent process. Unfortunately, that is far from the case when it comes to the process dictating endangered species policies, particularly in this case of the Gray Wolf."
Newhouse says the wolf delisting question has been put before the federal government for years ...
NEWHOUSE ... "I have received letters from the director of the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife, one in 2015 and one earlier this year, and would ask unanimous consent Mr. Speaker for them to be entered into the record. Without objection."
With a growth rate of over 30% per year, Newhouse says State Fish and Wildlife is well suited to manage a wolf population that's grown from the first wolves in 2008 to 22 known packs ...
NEWHOUSE ... "State governments are fully qualified to responsibly manage Gray Wolf populations and are better able to meet the needs of local communities, of ranchers, of livestock, wildlife populations and ecosystems. I encourage my colleagues to support the rule and the underlying legislation."
