Rep. Jeff Flake attacks Endangered Species Act
UPDATE, 6/13: Flake's radical amendments went down in flames today on Capitol Hill.
MESA AZ -- US Rep. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) is attacking wildlife and the Endangered Species Act through his two stealth amendments to HR 2337, the Energy Policy Reform and Revitalization Act of 2007.
Flake's amendments, supported by the anti-environmental National Association of Home Builders (aka big corporate developers), opposes a 'national strategy' for wildlife, habitat and endangered species conservation and recovery.
Once again an Arizona Republican ignores quality of life at home to do the bidding of big corporate fat cats in DC. Shame on Flake, and may his bad amendments go down in flames.
