Good Job By Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush!
"Injecting state government into a long-running battle of development vs. preservation, Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush sued the federal government Monday in an attempt to remove a Central Texas songbird from the endangered species list. The federal lawsuit argues that special habitat protections, including development restrictions, are no longer necessary because the golden-cheeked warbler’s population has recovered since the bird was listed as endangered almost 27 years ago."
“Leaving a species on the endangered list after its recovery is not only ineffective, it’s irresponsible,” Bush said. “The restoration of the golden-cheeked warbler population is a success story worth celebrating by removing it from the endangered list and restoring the rights of Texas landowners to effectively manage our own properties.”
