Incidental Take of Migratory Birds deadline for comments is July 27

hawkwatch.org wrote in July newsletter:

- The Department of Interior is looking to draft a rule for programmatic
incidental take of the MBTA with guidelines for minimization and offset of
all migratory bird species. This is similar to the eagle "take" permit
process currently in place for wind energy developers. Click here
to read more about Migratory Bird Permits; Programmatic Environmental
Impact Statement and submit your public comment.[with "Incidental Take
of Migratory Birds" in the letter ]
- Representative Jeff Duncan (R-SC) submitted H.R.2578
an amendment into the budget for Commerce, Justice and Science that would
prevent federal prosecutors from enforcing the MBTA. While this is not the
first time such an attempt has been made to hinder the MBTA, it should not
go unnoticed. Click here
to contact your representative and let them know you want the Migratory
Bird Treat Act left intact. http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/
