ESA Working Group Forum Scheduled for Tomorrow, But Not Without Controversy
Posted in Congress

The Endangered Species Act Congressional Working Group is scheduled to hold a forum tomorrow morning entitled "Reviewing 40 Years of the Endangered Species Act and Seeking Improvement for People and Species."  A press release issued by the Working Group states that the forum "will feature a diverse group of invited stakeholders who will testify on all angles of the ESA, its impacts on species and people over the last 40 years, and potential improvements going forward."  According to a recent story published by the Environment & Energy Daily entitled Sides spar over invite list as GOP working group prepares to host forum on ESA reform, however, there is some dispute as to whether the forum will feature a "diverse group" of stakeholders.  Phil Taylor, the author of the story, reports that although representatives from the Center for Biological Diversity and Defenders of Wildlife are listed as invited panelists, according to statements from the representatives, no invitations were ever received.  The story does not state whether the individuals plan on attending the forum.
