Accepted submission by Anonymous Coward at 2018-07-30 12:35:19

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and NOAA Fisheries announced their proposed changes to the Endangered Species Act, ostensibly "to ensure clarity and consistency." They are asking for comments from the public by September 24. Comments can be made by mail or over a JavaScript-based Web site. All comments will be published on the Web site.

Here are alternate pages where the proposed rules may be read. These do not require JavaScript.

Business Insider []; the Roseburg, Oregon News-Review [] (archive link for EU readers []); Mother Nature Network []; and Idaho Stateman [] have articles on the topic.

In related news, CBS News [] notes that "while the White House can act on its own, those changes could always be undone by future administrations" while reporting that members of Congress have prepared several bills which would revise the Endangered Species Act.
