The Endangered Species Act has been the law of the land for more than 40 years. According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service website, the act was intended to highlight the “esthetic, ecological, educational, recreational, and scientific value to our Nation and its people.” But Wyoming Senator John Barrasso says it needs updating.
“The Endangered Species Act was written, created and adopted for all the right reasons and there’s just too much sand in the gears right now.”
Barrasso says the Act creates too many hoops and hurdles.
