Farmers, Ranchers, and Landowners Unite in Criticism of Biden Administration’s Latest Enforcement Actions

Several organisations that represent ranchers, farmers, hunters, landowners, and energy interests. oppose Biden administration policies that would increase wildlife safeguards.

Concerns of Landowners which Mount Over U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Regulations

In particular remarks made earlier this month. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) unveiled the rules in June, according to the groups. represent a misuse of federal power and would be bad for small enterprises. Based on federal documents that Fox News Digital has reviewed. State wildlife authorities are another option besides business organisations. Additionally, a group of 18 Republican solicitors general commented against the regulations.

“Everyone wants to protect threatened wildlife. And we are all committed to protecting their habitat, which is vital. It turns out that these new regulations essentially violate the Endangered Species Act and do not protect wildlife. said Todd Rokita, the attorney general of Indiana, who also signed the coalition’s letter of opinion.

He continued, “We are acting because these proposed new rules constitute a power grab. The constitutional rights of Indiana to control its own natural resources are violated by these new regulations. and fail to provide effective protection to further threatened wildlife species.”

The Potential Implications of New Endangered Species Act Regulations

If the regulations are put into effect, Rokita continued, Indiana’s businesses and economy will be at risk.

As part of its celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Endangered Species Act (ESA), the FWS unveiled the regulations on June 21. The proposal’s comment period came to a close last week.

Three new rules would be implemented by the FWS under the proposal. The first option would reinstate the infamous “blanket 4(d) rule.” This extends the protections for endangered species to any wildlife categorised as “threatened.” The second prohibits the agency from taking economic considerations into account when classifying a species as endangered.

The third would make multi-agency decision-making for ESA implementation more efficient.
