NMFS Seeks Regulatory Reform Comments on ESA Pesticide Consultation Process

In accordance with several recently issued Presidential Executive Orders, the U.S. National Marine Fisheries Service seeks public comment on identifying existing regulations that: eliminate jobs, or inhibit job creation; are outdated, unnecessary, or ineffective; impose costs that exceed benefits; create a serious inconsistency or interfere with regulatory reform initiatives and policies; are inconsistent with the requirements of the Information quality Act; and/or derive from or implement Executive Orders or other Presidential directives that have been subsequently rescinded or substantially modified. NMFS also seeks public comment on the efficiency and effectiveness of current regulatory processes, and specifically, if current regulatory processes can be further streamlined or expedited in a manner consistent with applicable law.
