The House of Representatives has voted to prevent Endangered Species Act (ESA) protection and new conservation plans for the Greater Sage-Grouse, and to prohibit ESA protection for the already listed Lesser Prairie-Chicken. These votes to harm birds were on the National Defense Authorization Act which is now being considered by the U.S. Senate.
Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) and Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) have proposed amendments to prohibit protection of the Greater Sage-Grouse, and the Lee amendment also seeks to strike down ESA protection for the Lesser Prairie-Chicken.
