NMFS and FWs Extend Comment Period for New ESA Rules
On September 12, 2008, the U.S. National Marine Fisheries Service and the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service announced that they were extending the public comment period for their jointly proposed new rules governing inter-agency cooperation under the Endangered Species Act. The new comment period ends October 14, 2008.

These proposed rules are controversial, and they are generating substantial public interest. As of September 15, 2008, almost 8000 public comments had already been filed on the proposed rules.
