Further Expanding the Government’s Abuse of the Endangered Species List.

2023 - US Senate

Vote Description

This Congressional Review Act resolution sponsored by Sen. Roger Marshall nullifies a rule create by the US Fish and Wildlife Service entitled, “Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Lesser Prairie-Chicken; Threatened Status with Section 4(d) Rule for the Northern Distinct Population Segment and Endangered Status for the Southern Distinct Population Status.” Put simply, the rule places the Lesser Prairie-Chicken on the endangered species list and extends various protections to it. CPAC recognizes that the endangered species list has been used to crack down on all manner of causes not favored by the Left. In the case of the lesser prairie-chicken, its “endangerment” has helped bolster opposition to the Keystone XL pipeline, a project particularly hated by the environmental Left. CPAC opposes the abuse of the endangered species list in this way and supported this resolution. The Senate sustained President Biden’s veto of this resolution on September 28, 2023 by a vote of 47-46. U.S. Senate: U.S. Senate Roll Call Votes 118th Congress - 1st Session
