Conservative agenda apparent in Interior appropriation bill

ENDANGERED SPECIES -- A measure that would give Wyoming control over wolves and fend off lawsuits if a deal was struck to take the wolf off the federal endangered species list was attached by U.S. Rep. Cynthia Lummis to the 2012 Interior and Environment Appropriations bill.

The Jackson Hole Daily has this update.

The bill is laden with a number of other provisions that would direct the U.S. Forest Service to put more focus on logging beetle-killed forests, limit funding for endangered species and critical habitat, and protect grazing rights.
