The Battle Continues…Act Now!

Posted on

The Continuing Resolution Bill that was passed by Congress and when it hit the Senate, Senator Harry Reid stated all of the damaging anti environmental and wildlife language was removed.  Not so fast, Senator!  Senator Jon Tester of Montana added language designed to remove wolves from the Endangered Species Act, and this Bill is on the move so we need to act quickly,

The fastest way to express your opinion is to call, and  Wolf Warriors Marc and Nabeki(Howling for Justice) have provided the following list of the key people to contact.

Tell your representatives, and even the President that you want Section 1709 of the Senate version of the spending bill (submitted by Senator Tester) removed from this bill,.  Tell them that you support wolves staying protected under the Endangered Species Act as Science mandates that wolves have not fully recovered to the point that the ecosystem will be stable.  This is a case of science provided by independent biologists should be considered above the political motivated statements by state paid biologists that answer to the very same people that are trying to rid their states of wolves.

The following list was generated by Marc Cooke and Nabeki(Wolf Warriors), and you can also see more from Nabeki on Howling for Justice.

When contacting your Senator, Diane Bentevegna offers these  TALKING POINTS – The Senate Democrats promised that the Senate version of the spending bill would be stripped of legislation meant to score points with special interests. I strongly oppose the rider in Sec. 1709. I am outraged that Senate Democrats would include this language that would gut the Endangered Species Act and imperil all listed plants, fish and wildlife, including the gray wolf.
