House bill would remove wolf from endangered species list

Another effort is being made in the U.S. House to remove the gray wolf from the list of endangered and threatened wildlife. 

House Resolution 764 is nearly identical to a bill that failed to move through the Democrat-controlled House in 2020, except this time, the bill also has language saying if passed, the final rule from the Secretary of the Interior shall not be subject to judicial review.  U.S. District Judge Jeffrey White from northern California restored protections for the wolf in most of the U.S. after the Interior Secretary removed wolves from the endangered species list.

The new bill has support from 23 members of Congress so far, including Jack Bergman from Michigan, Pete Stauber, and Michelle Fischbach from Minnesota, and Tom Tiffany, Glenn Grothman, Derrick Van Orden, and Bryan Steil from Wisconsin. The bill has been introduced and referred to the Committee on Natural Resources for review.
