Grizzly bear delisting
GRIZZLY BEAR – States findings of the Legislature and urges the delisting of grizzly bear in the lower 48 states.

RS30547 / HJM005

In response to the denial of Idaho’s petition to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and U.S. Department of Interior (DOI) to delist grizzly bears in the lower 48 states, this memorial asks for the following: (a) calls upon Congress to act promptly by delisting grizzly bears in the lower 48 states from the Endangered Species Act; (b) calls upon the DOI and USFWS to reverse the determination on Idaho’s delisting petition by relying on federal law, policy, and science, and to proceed with delisting of grizzly bear in the lower 48 states; and (c) acknowledges that without state and local management, grizzly bear population recovery and conservation would not be successful.

This legislation causes no additional expenditure of funds at the state or local level of government, nor does it cause an increase or decrease in revenue for state or local government. Therefore the legislation has no fiscal impact.
