Enviros rip “most drastic” of current crop of GOP-sponsored anti-ESA legislation

Some GOP members of the U.S. House Of Representatives are taking a run against the Endangered Species Act, saying its reform is long overdue.

“In the more than 40 years since its introduction and passage, much has changed in our nation and its environment, but the law has not kept up with the evolving realities of the 21st Century," said Rep. Bruce Westerman, R-Arkansas, who on Thursday introduced a measure that would allow the Interior secretary to put a hold on "frivolous" lawsuits that impede the work of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, which oversees management of the act.
