HB2699 - April 14 - Senate COW - "endangered species program; rescission; reimbursement"
One of the reasons cited by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in removing Cliven Bundy's cattle from public lands in Nevada was because the Desert Tortoise found on the land was "threatened/endangered."
We have our own situation in Arizona relating to the Mexican wolf. The United States Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS) is poised to declare the Mexican wolf "endangered." The USFWS is also poised to expand the Mexican wolf release area to cover a broad swath of Arzona, which will include 15 Arizona counties.
It is time for all of us to email and call our Arizona Senators to strongly encourage them to vote YES to HB2699, and to stand up for all Arizona citizens' right to protect ourselves, families, property, and livelihoods!
