"Time and time again we have seen how the use of questionable science in the implementation of the Endangered Species Act has thrown communities like the Klamath Basin into economic upheaval with no benefit to the threatened species. During this hearing we will examine the National Academy of Sciences final report that repudiated the scientific justification behind the 2001 water shut-off. Hopefully by studying the Klamath Basin water crisis and similar situations across the United States, we can develop a blueprint for making common sense improvements to the ESA that benefit both species and property owners."
