The Congressional Western Caucus is committed to promoting commonsense policies to modernize the Endangered Species Act. We must empower our local, state, and tribal partners to collaborate on comprehensive recovery and conservation efforts. We know this to be true: More stringent regulations will not lead to more successful species recovery. The Endangered Species Act was passed with good intentions, but it has been weaponized by special interest groups. For years, state and local governments, non-profit conservation organizations, and local communities have consistently proven themselves as the best stewards of their unique landscapes and have implemented successful wildlife management practices. Our Members support these type of collaborative conservation efforts, and we promote policy improvements that empower conservation partners to achieve the end goal of removing species from the Endangered Species Act’s threatened or endangered species lists.
