Houston Safari Club, in conjunction with American Wildlife Conservation Partners affiliate organziations, signs on to letter in support of Sage-Grouse and Mule Deer Habitat Conservation and Restoration Act (S. 1417). This legislation would direct the Bureau of Land Management to conserve and restore important sagebrush habitat from the encroachment of invasive piñon pine and juniper trees. This bill would remove duplicative and unnecessary hurdles that can currently prevent and delay these important projects. Specifically, S. 1417 would categorically exclude commonly used and previously analyzed practices for restoring and rehabilitating sagebrush habitat for the benefit of sage-grouse and mule deer from duplicative study under the National Environmental Policy Act.
