Congressman Biggs Votes for the "Manage Our Wolves Act"
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 6784 – Manage Our Wolves Act by a vote of 196 – 180. This bill directs the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to delist the gray wolf from the endangered species list; allows states to manage individual wolf population, and exempts the gray wolf delisting from judicial review to prevent further litigation. Congressman Biggs released the following statement:
“The federal government’s listing of the gray wolf is no longer necessary and yet continues to cause economic harm for ranchers across the United States. I will continue to work with Chairman Gosar, Chairman Bishop, and the Trump administration to continue to reform the Endangered Species Act and return power back to the states.”
