President Obama signed the budget bill into law last Friday which contained a rider that will de-list wolves within 60 days. The law makes the 2009 USFWS wolf de-listing rule valid and returns wolf management to the states. De-listing will include Idaho, Montana, eastern Washington, eastern Oregon, and northern Utah. The bill leaves the door open for de-listing in Wyoming in the future. It also includes language that removes judicial review thus stopping the lawsuits that have tied state agencies hands.
