Lummis Defeats Attempt to Strip Wyoming Wolf Fix

U.S. Representative Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming joined a bipartisan majority of her colleagues on Wednesday to vote down an amendment designed to strip wolf language from the Department oft the Interior, Environment and Related Agencies Appropriations Act of 2016.  Lummis, along with a bipartisan group of members of Congress from the Western Great Lakes region, helped write and secure the language to restore the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s decisions to return management of the gray wolf to the State of Wyoming and the states in the Western Great Lakes region.  The provision also ensures that these science-based decisions are protected from further litigation.
