The lead story discusses the EPA’s “endangerment finding” and why this regulation should be dumped.
The second story reviews the 12,000-year history of human habitation of the Santa Cruz Valley in Arizona.
The People for the West newsletter for August 2017 is now online:
The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service has issued a draft recovery plan for the Mexican Grey Wolf which inhabits parts of Mexico, Arizona, and New Mexico. You can read the entire plan here.
FWS is soliciting public comments which must be submitted before August 29th. You can comment here. Ranchers are generally against any recovery plan because Mexican Wolves prey upon sheep and cattle, see articles here.
Here is a quote from the plan:
“We expect the status of the Mexican wolf to improve such that we can downlist to threatened status in approximately 16-20 years. We expect to achieve delisting criteria in approximately 25-35 years for a total estimated cost of $262,575,000. These timeframes are based on expectation of full funding, implementation as provided for in the recovery plan and implementation strategy, and full cooperation of binational partners.”
Can you think of any better way to spend that money? Or just not spend it at all? Why not just delist the wolf and let Nature take its course?
Stop Unconstitutional Federal Spending
The total federal deficit is almost $20 trillion. Although the President submits or suggests budgets, it is the duty of Congress to appropriate the money. In my opinion, a large part of federal spending is unconstitutional.
The Constitution of the United States grants certain powers to Congress and Executive Branch. Over the years, Congress has greatly exceeded its Constitutional authority. Federal agencies have created thousands of regulations and spent trillions of dollars of taxpayers’ money on things for which they had no authority to do so. These regulations have the force of law, but only Congress can make law. There is a movement to change the constitution with a balanced budget amendment. Such an amendment would be unnecessary if only Congress and the President would enforce the Constitution.
