Bush seeks to gut endangered species laws

President George Bush is rushing to gut regulations that protect endangered species, according to a story from the Associated Press.

Regulations requiring government experts verify proposed construction projects don't pose a threat to endangered wildlife could be relaxed, if the Department of the Interior is able to complete its efforts to rewrite the rules before tomorrow. Assuming they're successful, President-elect Barak Obama would find his hands tied on the matter. The full story appears in the Huffington Post.
