With your help, HR 1 has failed!

 

Less than an hour ago the U.S. Senate shut down HR 1!  This budget bill, a Continuing Resolution,  had seemingly countless riders attached to it, including the one written by Idaho Representative Mike Simpson.  Without ever mentioning wolves even once, Representative Simpson's rider (Section 1713), would have removed wolves from the protections of the Endangered Species Act and would have also prohibited the issue from any future judicial review.  Your calls helped bring to the attention of the Senators reviewing this 359 page resolution what the cryptically written Section 1713 was about.  Your efforts helped, your opinions were heard.

Wolves are no longer hidden in this budget bill, but it is eminent, that in the very near future there will be similar legislation introduced either in the form of another rider, like this one, or in the form of a freestanding bill, where once again the protection of wolves will be under attack again.  So the battle over wolves on Capitol Hill continues, but today is a good day for wolves.

 

If you wish to follow up and thank the Senators you contacted for today's outcome, we have reattached the list of phone numbers below.   

 

And again, we thank you, and the wolves of America thank you as well!
