H.J.Res. 69: Providing for congressional disapproval under chapter 8 of title 5, United States Code, of the final rule of the Department of the Interior relating to “Non-Subsistence Take of Wildlife, and Public Participation and Closure Procedures, on Na

Mar 21, 2017 at 6:11 p.m. ET. On the Joint Resolution in the Senate.

This was a vote to agree to H.J.Res. 69 (115th) in the Senate.

H.J.Res. 69 would nullify the rule issued by the Department of the Interior on August 5, 2016, amending regulations for National Wildlife Refuges in Alaska that govern predator control and public participation and closure procedures.

The rule amended regulations for the National Wildlife Refuges in Alaska, referring to existing mandates related to predator control on Alaska refuges. In addition to prohibiting several methods and means for the take of predators the rule also updates public participation and closure procedures.

According to the bill’s sponsor, “There’s no question, the Fish and Wildlife Service rule—which lays claim to more than 20 percent of our state—violates ANILCA (Alaska National Interest Land Conservation Act) and the Alaska Statehood Compact. Not only does this action undermine Alaska’s ability to manage fish and wildlife upon refuge lands, it fundamentally destroys a cooperative relationship between Alaska and the federal government”.
