    FISH AND WILDLIFE SERVICE
    CONTINGENCY PLAN FACT SHEET
    September 27, 2013
    The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) works with others to conserve, protect and enhance
    fish, wildlife and plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people. The
    Service manages nearly 150 million acres of land and waters in the national wildlife refuge
    system, operates 73 national fish hatcheries and is responsible for implementing and enforcing
    some of our Nation’s most important environmental laws, such as the Endangered Species Act,
    Migratory Bird Treaty Act, Marine Mammal Protection Act, The Lacey Act, and international
    agreements like the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species.
    In the event of a lapse in appropriations and pursuant to law, the Service will close most
    operations, but certain excepted activities will continue.
    • National Wildlife Refuges will be closed to public access. Visitor Centers and other
    buildings will be closed.
    • All activities will be canceled on federal lands and public buildings until the government
    reopens. This includes hunting and fishing activities on public lands.
    • No permitting work or consultations will occur with respect to the Endangered Species
    Act, Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act, the Convention on Trade in Endangered
    Species, the Lacy Act or the National Environmental Policy Act.
    • Employees and others may not volunteer their services on behalf of Service functions or
    on federal lands.
    Services and Programs that would remain operational
    The Service has designated the following exempted categories:
    • Programs financed by other than annual appropriations.

    We are driving toward the cliff with the pedal on the floor board! At the very least we could let California and New England fall off.

    I don't want to get too political. Nobody will ever change their mind anyways. However, I see the problem as this.............the extremes at both ends run the show. Same with the media. You have the extreme left and the extreme right. Repub vs Democr.........Lib vs. Cons..........and both sides get their "base" all fired up and hating the other side, and nothing useful ever gets accomplished. The vast majority of this country isn't right wing/left wing dem/repub. I think most people fall in the middle. I have some views that would be considered "liberal" and some "conservative" with the most being in between. If more people governed toward us in the middle and threw the crazies (left or right) out, we would all be better off. and that is all I have to say on this topic.

    I was in the national forest all weekend with no issues. But I was also at a place that has no services, access was the same as always. Even had a state fish cop put his card in my door handle.
