Another New Mexico county has joined a lawsuit to fight the listing of the lesser prairie chicken as a threatened species. Lea County in southeastern New Mexico joined three other counties in the state last week in a federal lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Interior and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
U.S. Rep., Steve Pearce, R-N.M., .. The Fish and Wildlife Services decision to cater to environmental groups and disregard science will devastate New Mexicos way of life, he said. New Mexicans will pay the price in lost jobs, industry, ranching and oil and gas production.

NEW MEXICO VOTING HISTORY
Heh heh heh . . .
We have the same EPA stupidity in Kansas. We have had a drought. When the rains come back, the wildlife will come back. It is as simple as that.
Obama’s way of stopping oil production?
Thats always our stock excuse for anything like this. If we can’t destroy God’s Creation we scream “women and children hurt the most!”
stopping oil production and everything else
We notified them that this was certainly not a river, not a stream and not even a creek, it was a ditch that had filled due to heavy rains for three days in a row! They still claimed that there was "protected species living in that water."
Fortunately, Mother Nature took care of the situation, i.e. rain stopped, sun came out, ditch dried up!
‘We have the same EPA stupidity in Kansas.’
I dealt with these guys in the early 80’s and can tell you this is not stupidity this is all about control. In the business I was in we called em Chock Full a Nuts, and they were. They are also very dangerous to what little freedom we still have. They are true believers.
The part of the state being attacked was solidly conservative. And Steve Pearce is a good man.
the lesser prairie chicken as a threatened species.
Its all those illegal aliens disturbing the lesser prairie chicken in its natural environment...
they really need to ban illegal aliens...
Or Open Season - - - .
“I dealt with these guys in the early 80s and can tell you this is not stupidity this is all about control.”
If truer words exist, they have not been heard. People who are stupid enough to confuse a dry ditch with a navigable waterway do not obtain government employment because they are incapable of doing the paperwork, in fact they are all sitting in a corner blowing spit bubbles. The truth is they cannot just come out and say that they intend to wreck your life just for the pure joy of doing it so they have to act as if they are idiots who don’t know Shiite from Shinola and dare you to do something about it.
