The 116th Congress will convene January 3, 2019, this means all bills introduced over the past two years, including the bill’s below,  are now dead and will need to be reintroduced.  Appropriation bills have not yet been resolved and delisting riders can be attached.  We need to stay vigilant as we expect the war on wolves will continue to rage on.
