Bob Slobe, president of the North Sacramento Land Company, is unable to develop his land because it would harm the Valley Elderberry Longhorn Beetle, which is listed as an endangered species.

PLF has filed a lawsuit asking that the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS) be ordered to start the process of dropping the valley elderberry longhorn beetle (VELB) from the U.S. Endangered Species Act list. Read more about the case and the lawsuit on our website.
