Digest of Federal Resource Laws

*Please Note:  The Digest of Federal Resource Laws is currently in the process of being updated.  Please contact our office with any questions or concerns.

The Digest of Federal Resource Laws of Interest to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service was originally published by the Office of Legislative Services (now the Division of Congressional and Legislative Affairs) in 1979.

This update is the third update since publication of the Digest.  The Digest provides a comprehensive list and description of all federal laws under which the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service functions; including Administrative Laws, Treaties, Executive Orders, Interstate Compacts and Memoranda of Agreement.

The Center for Wildlife Law at the University of New Mexico has a similar publication entitled the Federal Wildlife and Related Laws Handbook.
