I haven't sent my letters yet but have been keeping track of the bills.

All of the bills are in their first steps of the legislative process.  When introduced as these have been, they go to committees that investigate them before they go up for general debate.  The majority of bills (and resolutions) never make it out of committee.

So far, the 3 Senate bills all were read twice and referred to the Committee on Environment and Public Works.  No further action since the end of September.  The House Bill H.R. 6028 was re ferred to the House Committee on Natural Resources with no further action since July 30.


There has been no change in the movement of these bills as of today, November 17, 2010.  If you are interested in keeping track of these bills or any others, click here:  http://www.govtrack.us/  and type in the letter and numbers in the box at the top right of the page where it says Bill Search

Wolf Bills unlikely to advance this Congress

Lawmakers from the Northern Rockies say pending bills aimed at getting gray wolves off the endangered species list have little chance of passage this year.

A time crunch, coupled with unresolved partisan differences on the issue, means several wolf bills introduced in the lead-up to the election are likely to die without action.

With only a few working weeks left in the 111th Congress, attention is focused on a few major items including unemployment, Medicare and nuclear proliferation.

The legislation could be reintroduced next year.

It's uncertain how the issue might shift in the next Congress, which will have a Republican-controlled House.

Baucus said last Friday in a meeting with Missoula businessmen that the best way to deal with the issue may be to make a small change in law. He said he was looking at a plan that would simply allow a judge to divide sub-populations of endangered species by political divisions.

"This is the approach we think will work," he said, but questioned whether it could be passed in the lame duck session of Congress.
