Arkansas Delegation Challenges Critical Habitat Designation in Arkansas

Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senators Mark Pryor and John Boozman, along with Congressman Rick Crawford (AR-1), Tim Griffin (AR-2), Steve Womack (AR-3), and Tom Cotton (AR-4) today sent a letter to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) Director Daniel M. Ashe challenging the critical habitat designation for the Neosho Mucket and Rabbitsfoot Mussell in Arkansas -- a decision the delegation says could negatively impact Arkansas’s families, farmers, businesses, and local communities. The delegation letter calls for information on the process that led to the agency’s proposal and asks the FWS to reevaluate the scope of the critical habitat designation.
