Please do everything in your power to oppose HJ Res 69, as well as HR 424 and HR 717. On many issues, when when new legislation is passed, it can be revised if the results are negative. However when it comes to endangered species, when a species is lost, no new legislation can bring it back. Each lost species alters the fragile biodiversity that keeps us all alive. Even from a purely economic point of view the unforeseen impacts of this effect can be massively costly.
