Committee to Hold Endangered Species Act Hearing Focused on defining species conservation success

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The House Natural Resources Committee will hold a Full Committee
oversight hearing entitled "Defining Species Conservation Success: Tribal, State and Local Stewardship
vs. Federal Courtroom Battles and Sue-and-Settle Practices" on Tuesday, June 4th. 
The hearing, the first of a series expected this Congress, will showcase the
positive species conservation efforts being undertaken at 'on-the-ground' levels
when compared to the seemingly never-ending cycle of Endangered Species Act (ESA)
litigation.

"Many states, tribes and local communities are effectively implementing conservation
efforts to help species.  Those closest to the species know firsthand how to protect
species better than distant bureaucrats and litigious groups who often hinder the
ESA through lawsuits and closed-door settlements," said Natural Resources Committee
Chairman Doc Hastings.  "This hearing will provide an opportunity to hear what is
working well right now at the state, tribal, and local levels as opposed to
ESA-related litigation that divert time and resources away from actual recovery
efforts."
