Senate passes resolutions to cancel Biden endangered species protections


Recommended Posts

Washington Examiner

The Senate voted Thursday to cancel Biden administration rules related to protections for endangered and threatened species in the United States, the latest effort by Republicans to undo aspects of Biden's regulatory agenda, many of which have gained support from centrist Democrats.

The upper chamber voted 51-49 in two separate votes to approve two Congressional Review Act resolutions with mostly Republicans in support. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Sen. Angus King (I-ME) voted to approve S.J. Res. 23, while Manchin and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) voted in favor of S.J. Res. 24. Both will now head to the House for a vote.


The Biden administration has described the directives issued by the National Marine Fisheries Service and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as crucial to bolstering safety and habitat protections for endangered and threatened species.

Republicans, however, say the rules are overly broad.:snip:
