Escape Unnecessary Regulations: Idaho pushes for grizzly bear settlement

The state of Idaho is pushing for a settlement over grizzly bears being listed as an endangered species.
The state is seeking court approval of a settlement that would require the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to issue a final rule by 2026.

The rule would either revise or remove the current listing of the lower 48 grizzly bears as a threatened species.

Governor Brad Little says that Idaho and neighboring states have worked for decades to support healthy and reasonable grizzly populations, and this settlement would provide a path for farmers and landowners to escape regulations that are seen as not necessary.
