NESARC Files Comments with FWS and NMFS on Proposed Changes to Regulations for ESA Petitions18 September 2015
(WASHINGTON, DC) — The National Endangered Species Act Reform Coalition (NESARC) today filed comments with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Marine Fisheries Service (collectively, the “Services”) on a proposed rule to amend the existing regulations governing submission of petitions under the Endangered Species Act.
According to the comments:
“NESARC supports the Services’ efforts to update and clarify the procedures and requirements for submission of petitions seeking the listing, delisting and change in status for a species as well as petitions for the revision of critical habitat….We support these core concepts as they will help to restore balance to the petition process going forward.”
