As required by my provision in a recent federal law, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service last week removed Montana’s wolves from the Endangered Species List and returned their management to state biologists. It is a bipartisan victory that recognizes Montana’s wolf recovery as a success. As your senator, it’s my job to find solutions that are right for Montana, no matter how controversial or tough the issue is.
Montana needs responsible wildlife management. We need smart natural resource development. And for future generations, we need to protect the land, clean water and fresh air we’re blessed with.
