Trump officials to reconsider sage grouse protection policies

The Trump administration is convening a task force to consider changes to the Obama administration’s policies to protect an imperiled bird native to the American West.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke said Wednesday that the team’s goals are to evaluate whether the federal government’s policies related to the greater sage grouse are compatible with state policies, whether they’re beneficial for local economies and jobs and how they impact production of domestic energy.

Conservationists warned that the internal policy review in the Interior Department threatens the delicate balancing act the Obama administration and western states executed in 2015 to avoid listing the sage grouse under the Endangered Species Act, an option that critics say is blunt and inflexible.


"The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who, in times of great moral crisis, maintain their neutrality.'
