Obama Restores Key Provision of Endangered Species Act

This is not about the Carrizo specifically, but since the Carrizo has more endangered species than any place in California, it seems particularly apropos. http://voices.washingtonpost.com/44/2009/03/03/obama_restores_endangered_spec.html?hpid=topnews

Obama has restored a key provision of the Endangered Species Act.

Obama is scheduled to visit the Interior Department this afternoon, to
commemorate the agency’s 160th anniversary.
Kieran Suckling, executive director of the Center for Biological Diversity,
said the memorandum would have a tremendous impact.
“Endangered species are breathing a deep sigh of relief today,”
Suckling said. “The consultation process is the heart of the Endangered
Species Act power. By reversing Bush’s attempt to deregulate the
consultation process, Obama restored oversight and balance and has
given endangered species a good fighting chance of survival.”
