U.S. Representative Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo) and the Chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee (Doc Hastings (R-WA), announced an Oversight Field Hearing entitled, “State and Local Efforts to Protect Species, Jobs, Property and Multiple Use Amidst a New War on the West.”

The hearing is part of a larger effort by Rep. Hastings and Rep. Lummis as co-chairmen of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) Working Group to find ways to improve the ESA for both species and people. The Casper hearing will focus on efforts in Wyoming to preserve wildlife while maintaining good paying jobs in agriculture, energy, and recreation. Lummis says the ESA was designed to protect some of our nation’s most iconic species. Lummis says since its inception in 1973, the ESA has had only a 1% success rate.

The two part hearing will be held in Casper, WY and Billings, MT at the following locations and times:

The firs part of the hearing will be held on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 9:00 a.m. MDT, at the Wyoming Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, 2211 King Blvd., in Casper, Wyoming.
