Livestock Industry Supports WGA

WASHINGTON (June 28,
2017) – Today, Dave Eliason, Utah rancher and president of the Public Lands
Council (PLC), and Craig Uden, Nebraska cattle producer and president of the
National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA), issued the following statements
regarding the recommendations stemming from the Western Governors Association
Species Conservation and Endangered Species Act Initiative:

“The process that has unfolded over the past few years is an example of what
can be accomplished when we put our differences aside and come together to
tackle complex problems,” said Eliason. “WGA, and Governor Mead in particular,
deserve a lot of credit for their leadership on this issue. These
recommendations were developed through engagement with diverse stakeholders and
we urge Congress to use this as a roadmap to modernize the Endangered Species
Act.”
 
“The Endangered Species Act impacts cattle producers across the United States,”
said Uden. “We were pleased to have been involved in this process from the
beginning and stand ready to remain engaged with the Western Governors
Association and lawmakers moving forward.”
