Montana | Legislature to consider resolution calling for state’s grizzlies to be delisted from ESA

Getting grizzly bears delisted from the Endangered Species Act will be on the Legislature’s wish list for the second session in a row.

Sen. Mike Cuffe, R-Libby, will send his joint resolution to a public hearing on Thursday. If passed, it asks the state’s congressional delegation to draft a bill giving Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Department responsibility for grizzly management and blocking any court review of the move. A nearly identical 2017 version passed the House 63-37 and the Senate 31-18. Rep. Steve Gunderson, R-Libby, led that effort. However, no Montana congressional member introduced such a bill.
