Re: Feds Request Comment on Definition of Endangered Species

Vince, Does aSa have a position on this? If so, can aSa state its position?

If the policy were to be adopted and the enviros were to make a claim of "threatened" or "endangered" would that close off a "range"?

Another thing that needs to be addressed is mutation, e.g. the sand dune lizard.
