Endangered Species Overhaul Opposed by Most of Michigan's Delegation
WMMT TV (Kalamazoo) reports that most of Michigan's congressional delegation opposed a House-passed overhaul of the 1973 Endangered Species Act that would help property owners receive payments if species protection measures hurt their development plans, and prevent the government from designating "critical habitat" for species where development is limited. The state's Democratic delegation (joined by three Republicans) voted against the measure while 6 Republicans supported the proposal.
