PLF to testify at congressional hearing on how ESA burdens development

By Jonathan Wood Attorney

It is a busy week for PLF’s DC Center.

Our Executive Director Todd Gaziano will be speaking Wednesday at an event hosted by Senator Lee (Utah) to announce the release of an American Enterprise Institute paper coauthored by Todd and PLF trustee Prof. John Yoo. RSVP here.

Tomorrow, March 28th, I’ll be testifying on the impacts of Endangered Species Act consultation on economic development and infrastructure. My written testimony, which is available here, explains that consultation causes significant delays and increased costs, even in cases where the affected project would benefit species. The hearing before the House Committee on Natural Resource Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations will be at 10am in Room 1324 of the Longworth House Office Building. Watch the video of the hearing below!
