NRECA submitted comments in response to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS ) notice of a 90-day finding on a petition to list the Lesser Prairie-Chicken (LPC) under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and initiation of a status review. The LPC does not warrant listing as a matter of law, fact, science or policy. The best scientific and commercial information available demonstrates that the LPC’s population is stable, and that significant public and private conservation measures are underway that will protect the continued stability of the LPC and expand its habitat and range.
