Environment and Economic Stability Act of 1992 - Amends the Endangered Species Act of 1973 to require an analysis of the economic costs and benefits of determining that a species is endangered or threatened before including it on either of such lists.

Establishes a right of appeal to the Committee for the denial of an exemption permit. Revises provisions regarding: (1) prohibitions with respect to endangered species; and (2) status determinations, including data collection, peer review, and species estimation. Requires the Secretary to make certain determinations before a subspecies or distinct population segment of a species may be considered endangered or threatened. Transfers authority to develop and implement species recovery plans from the Secretary to the appropriate Secretaries (Interior, Commerce, or Agriculture). Provides for the consideration of alternatives and public participation in the development of such plans. Provides, with regard to experimental populations, for: (1) release in National Park or National Wildlife Refuge lands whenever possible; and (2) efforts to protect public and domestic animal safety and welfare in cases of release outside such lands.

No summary available.
House Democratic Caucus Summary
The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.
So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.
We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
