Oppose Deeply Flawed Republican Water Bill. Again. (v. 2)

Please join us in opposing H.R. 23: Gaining Responsibility on Water Act of 2017 (Valadao, R-CA). Like unsuccessful Republican bills in the previous three Congresses, H.R. 23 uses past California droughts as an excuse to take water from other uses and give
it to narrow business interests. The bill is being rushed to the floor without a hearing or mark-up. H.R. 23 rolls back our nation’s bedrock environmental laws, harms tribes, overturns state law, threatens thousands of jobs, and ignores real solutions to grow
our water supply.

TODAY – BRIEFING: The Federal Role in Managing Wildlife on U.S. Public Lands

Please join experts in the field of natural resources law for a briefing on the federal authority to manage wildlife. Historically, there has been disagreement over who has the authority to manage wildlife populations on U.S. public lands. It is a widely
held misconception that states have primary jurisdiction over wildlife on lands owned by the American people and administered by the Departments of the Interior and Agriculture. While states do play a role, federal agencies have an obligation, both legal and
ecological, to manage wildlife on these lands. This panel will explore the tensions between federal and state agencies in managing wildlife on federal lands. We hope you will join us to better learn how these legal authorities should be balanced for the most
effective management of our wildlife resources.
