Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Revision of the Regulations for Prohibitions to Threatened Wildlife and Plants, 83 Fed. Reg. 35,174 (July 25, 2018); Docket No. FWS-HQ-ES-2018-0007

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce submits these comments in support of the Fish and Wildlife Service’s (FWS) proposed revisions to regulations extending to threatened species most of the prohibitions for activities involving endangered species.1 The Chamber recognizes the need to protect species threatened with extinction, but urges the FWS to avoid unnecessary impediments to land and natural resources development. FWS can accomplish this by using sound science and tailored section 4(d) rules to balance endangered species protection with property rights and compliance costs when listing species and designating critical habitat.
