Frog and Toad Proposed Designation Comment Extension Request
Congressman McClintock and seven colleagues have asked the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for an extension to the public comment period on the proposal to list the Sierra Nevada yellow-legged frog and the mountain yellow-legged frog as endangered species, and the Yosemite toad as a threatened species. The extension would be to ensure that public input is maximized and the effects of this proposal are fully understood.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service agreed to extend the comment period for an additional 120 days. The extended comment period is now open and will close on November 18, 2013. Information can be found on the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service website here and the link to leave a comment can be found here.
