ABC-Supported Legislation To Overturn the Northern Long-Eared Bat’s Endangered Species Listing Heads to President Biden’s Desk

by | Aug 2, 2023 | ABC | 0 comments

On July 26, the U.S. House of Representatives passed S.J. Res. 24, a Congressional Review Act resolution on the Endangered Species Status for Northern Long-Eared Bat with a bipartisan vote of 220-209. The passage of S.J. Res. 24 would, if enacted, prevent the ABC-opposed U.S. Department of Interior’s Fish and Wildlife Service’s proposed rule uplisting of the Northern Long-Eared Bat to “endangered” from “threatened” under the Endangered Species Act. Ahead of the vote, the U.S. House Committee on Natural Resources released a one-pager and a myth vs. fact sheet for S.J. Res. 24.
