My House Testimony on the Endangered Species Act

On Tuesday, I testified before the House Committee on Natural Resources about one of our nation’s greates conservation laws: the Endangered Species Act.

The committee asked me to testify out of a concern that excessive litigation is preventing efficient implementation of the act and slowing job creation. You can watch my opening remarks below.


Well said! It's refreshing to see a dialogue on these issues that so frequently polarize to irreconciable and misleading poles. It's also refreshing and uplifting to see and hear such direct support of the public servants who struggle daily to work through the complex issues surrounding the public laws they implement! I'm not a FWS employee, but these comments would have made me proud had I been one.
