Sen. Crapo, NWF's Kostyack discuss specifics of new ESA tax-incentive bill
The Endangered Species Recovery Act of 2007, sponsored by Sens. Mike Crapo (R-Idaho) and Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.), seeks to provide farmers with tax incentives to protect the endangered species on their land. During today's OnPoint, Sen. Mike Crapo (R-Idaho) and National Wildlife Federation senior counsel John Kostyack discuss this new piece of legislation. They explain how it differs from previous ESA legislation and talk about how they were able to gain bipartisan support and the support of both farmers and environmentalists.
