But What About Endangered Species?
The public comment period on the Bush administration’s proposed rules to overhaul the Endangered Species Act is still open — but only until Sept. 15.
With the conventions, the first African-American to receive a major party’s nomination, Sen. John McCain’s pick of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and Hurricane Gustav, there is reason to believe that the Bush administration’s attempts to alter the ESA could go overlooked.
I suspect that’s why E&E TV features an interview today on the proposed ESA changes with the National Wildlife Federation’s John Kostyack
“We feel that there is a serious risk that this will pass,” Kostyack tells E&E’s Monica Trauzzi. He also does a good job of explaining the proposed rules for newcomers to this issue. Watch the interview here.
