WI: Sen. Johnson to host gray wolf rule meeting

HUDSON– Sen. Ron Johnson will host a meeting to provide people with an opportunity to formally submit public comments on the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s (FWS) proposed rule to remove gray wolves in the lower 48 states from the endangered species list.

The meeting will be from 10 a.m. to noon on Friday, May 3, at the Hudson House Grand Hotel, 1616 Crestview Dr., Hudson.

Representatives from the FWS will attend and will provide a presentation on the specifics of the proposed rule. Federal and state government officials, including members of the Minnesota and Wisconsin congressional delegations, have been invited to attend.

Attendees who wish to offer a few minutes of verbal comments on the proposed rule will be given the opportunity to speak, but only written comments will be accepted as part of the official FWS record.

Those who cannot attend but would like to provide a comment regarding the proposal, use the link to submit a statement before May 14.
