Republican senator wants to undermine the law that saved the bald eagle

Senate GOP seeks overhaul of Endangered Species Act

http://thehill.com/policy/energy-environment/395135-senate-gop-seeks-overhaul-of-endangered-species-act

Quote: "This partisan bill is all about politics, at the expense of sound science and the species that depend on it for survival," Jamie Rappaport Clark, president and CEO of Defenders of the Wildlife, said Monday in a statement. "It is a reckless power grab designed to wrest away authority from scientists and wildlife experts and give it to states that lack the resources - and sometimes the political will - needed to save wildlife from extinction."

Requirement to Assess Pesticide Effects on Endangered Species To Be Eliminated in Farm Bill Proposal

https://beyondpesticides.org/dailynewsblog/2018/04/requirement-assess-pesticide-effects-endangered-species-eliminated-farm-bill-proposal/

Quote: "According to the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD), the bill, on a party-line vote, will 'completely exempt the use of pesticides from ESA, effectively dooming hundreds of endangered species to extinction and making it legal to kill any endangered species with a pesticide at almost any time.'"

This vile monstrosity passed the House and the Senate!
