Yesterday, Congressman Tom Tiffany (WI-07) and Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (CO-03) led 22 Members of Congress in reintroducing the Trust the Science Act. This legislation follows the scientific recommendation of wildlife experts that the gray wolf should be removed from the Endangered Species List and that gray wolf populations should be managed by states instead of one-size-fits-all federal government regulation.
Congressman Tom Tiffany said, “It’s a scientific fact that the gray wolf has recovered well past its recovery goal. Saying otherwise undermines the purpose of the Endangered Species Act. This is a true recovery success story, and it’s past time to give states the reins to control their wolf populations.”
We need to actually analyze the data objectively instead of letting Endangered Species Act listing decisions be made by leftist activists.”
Congresswoman Lauren Boebert stated, “The gray wolf is fully recovered, should remain delisted in the lower 48 states, and states should determine how to manage their local gray wolf populations. For too long, farmers and ranchers have been powerless to defend their livestock from gray wolf attacks. The Trust the Science Act empowers states and puts people ahead of violent predators. We need to actually analyze the data objectively instead of letting Endangered Species Act listing decisions be made by leftist activists.”
