September 2018 “Monthly Briefing”

Alliance Engages in Three-Front ESA Reform Effort

The Family Farm Alliance is active on three fronts regarding legislative and administrative efforts to modernize the federal Endangered Species Act of 1973 (ESA).

The Alliance and hundreds of other organizations representing interests in the regulated community earlier this month weighed in with detailed comments on a three-part package proposed by the Trump Administration to modernize the Act.

The Alliance has also been working with the House Natural Resources Committee, which this month conducted a legislative hearing on a 9-bill ESA modernization package.

Finally, Alliance representatives will also participate in a roundtable discussion with Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee Chairman John Barrasso (R-WYOMING) and committee staff in Washington, D.C. in early October to discuss the contents of a draft ESA modernization bill introduced earlier this year in the Senate.
