Farm Bureau welcomes ESA regulatory revisions

Topic: Issues

WASHINGTON, July 19, 2018

Statement by AFBF President Zippy Duvall:

“The American Farm Bureau Federation is pleased to see the White House is prioritizing regulatory improvements to the Endangered Species Act. We look forward to reviewing the proposals in greater detail with our members and providing constructive comments to the docket. On their face, the revisions are in line with farmers’ and ranchers’ calls for rules that are clear, encourage voluntary conservation work, increase local involvement and chart a path for real recovery and delisting of species. We applaud the Trump Administration’s regulatory reform efforts and this long-overdue change to the ESA.”
