California Sues Over Bush’s New Endangered Species Bill

January 2, 2009

US (ChattahBox) – A disgusting attempt by the Bush Administration to push a new bill through that would demolish the scientific review system for endangered species, has led to a lawsuit being filed against the Federal Government by the state of California.

The new law, which Bush is attempting to push through before he is kicked from office later this month, will eliminate the scientific research done to determine the effects of government systems against endangered species and the environment.

“The Bush Administration is seeking to gut the Endangered Species Act on its way out the door,” an outrages Attorney General Jerry Brown told reporters. “This is an audacious attempt to circumvent a time-tested statute that for 35 years has required scientific review of proposed federal agency decisions that affect wildlife.”

The Department of Interior argues that the selection process is above such matters as scientific review, and that experts aren’t needed to decide if an endangered species will be effected or not, that it’s a matter of their own discretion.

This opinion has led the State of California to say ‘enough’, and sue the Bush Administration for ignoring sections of the Endangered Species Act by adopting illegal regulations, and ignoring public opinion before setting projects in motion.

“The Department of Interior is ignoring the vast majority of the over 200,000 comments they got on this rule change-by moving forward. They are basically saying public be damned,” Andrew Wetzler, Director, of the Endangered Species program commented.

It is unlikely the lawsuit will stop the bill from passing, making it a matter of the next Administration turning it over, which will waste time and tax payer money. In the meantime, we can thank Bush for further proof of his total lack of concern for the falling environmental standards of our country.
