Hannity will spotlight PLF’s fight against “phantom frog” regulations

SACRAMENTO, CA;  August 6, 2013: Tonight, Hannity with Sean Hannity, on Fox News Channel, will spotlight one of Pacific Legal Foundation’s legal cases against oppressive environmental regulations — provided there is no breaking news that requires the PLF segment to be rescheduled.

The segment highlights how PLF is challenging a federal land grab for a phantom frog!

In St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana, federal officials have imposed restrictions on more than 1,500 acres of private property by labeling the land as “critical habitat” for the dusky gopher frog — even though there aren’t any frogs on the property.  In fact, there aren’t any dusky gopher frogs in the entire state!

Among those interviewed on the segment is PLF Principal Attorney M. Reed Hopper.

Hannity with Sean Hannity airs at 9:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. EDT. (6:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. PDT).
