Bush Budget to Gut Endangered Species Act

May 28, 2001

Bush Budget to Gut Endangered Species Act:

The release of the details of the Bush Administration's budget has revealed an attempt to gut the Endangered Species Act (ESA), America's premier wildlife protection law.  The budget contains an extinction rider that will give Secretary of the Interior Gale Norton sole discretion over whether or not imperiled species and their habitat will be protected under the ESA.

Your calls, faxes and letters to your Representatives and Senators are needed now to help maintain a strong ESA to secure the future of America's natural heritage. 

Visit America Rivers  to take action.

Thanks so much for your time and energy.
