If you did not know, our Pennsylvania Endangered Species Act has been placed on a guillotine and is close to getting chopped and dismembered. House Bill 1576 passed November 14. Representative Jeff Pyle, R-Armstrong, is the sponsor of House Bill 1576. Senate President Joe Scarnati, R-Jefferson, is the sponsor of identical legislation in the Senate as Senate Bill 1047. Locally, Rep. Garth Everett, who sits on the House Game and Fisheries Committee voted in favor of gutting the Act.
