Group Makes Recommendations Similar to House-Passed TESRA
"I am very pleased that the Keystone Group has echoed the sentiments of the U.S. House of Representatives on the need to reform the Endangered Species Act," said Cardoza. "The Keystone Group's recommendations reinforce what I have long believed: the Endangered Species Act needs to be modernized and refocused on its original goal - species recovery."
