House passes revised Endangered Species Act
"WASHINGTON - The House on Thursday passed legislation that could greatly expand private property rights under the environmental law that is credited with helping keep the bald eagle from extinction but also has provoked bitter fighting.
By a vote of 229-193, lawmakers approved a top-to-bottom overhaul of the 1973 Endangered Species Act, perhaps the nation’s most powerful environmental law. The law has led to contentious battles over species such as the spotted owl, the snail darter and the red-legged frog."
