Rep. Lummis wants to reform Endangered Species Act
Wyoming Congresswoman Cynthia Lummis will be involved in the latest attempt to reform the Endangered Species Act. Lummis will take testimony on how the law might be reformed during a hearing in Casper on September 4th. Lummis says the goal is not to get rid of the Endangered Species Act.
“Our goal is to make the endangered species act work. And we have a law where only one percent of the species that have been listed have been de-listed. To me that indicates a law that is failing,” says Lummis.
Lummis says too many species have ended up on the list due to court cases.
