Kobach urges passage of bill that would exclude Lesser Prairie Chicken from federal protection

This issue is much bigger than any politician or protecting a Prairie Chicken. It is about more than 1/3 of the counties in Kansas and tens of thousands of acres in surrounding states. The potential effects it could have on those counties, their communities, their residents and the entire State of Kansas, if the USFWS is successful in listing the Lesser Prairie Chicken as endangered could very possibly be devistating to all. Before you jump to conclusions and cast opinions, please inform yourself, learn about the issue and what the consequences will be for all of us. I assure you this is much more serious than most any understand. A group known as KNRC has been challenging this listing by pointing out the requirements under law, of USFWS prior to any listing and they have failed to this point to recognize even so much as one of their obligations under law. Think it over, educate yourself and then post your opinions. they may be much different when you learn the truth?
