The National Park Service has recently released an Environmental Assessment (EA) to develop a bison quarantine facility on the Fort Peck Reservation. The Montana Stock Growers Association (MSGA) has reviewed the EA and determined that further action is needed; the EA is incomplete and does not include factual cost estimates, scientific rigor or adequate disease testing. MSGA is filing formal comments and requesting a full Environmental Impact Study for a more comprehensive look into this facility.
MSGA has worked closely with Senator Daines and Representative Zinke to extend the public comment period on this EA. Together with Senator Daines and Representative Zinke we have successfully extended the deadline from February 15th to February 29th; allowing for more time to review this EA. The future decision stemming from this EA is not to be taken lightly as it could greatly affect Montana and its ranchers.
This information is an excerpt from the Montana Stock Growers newsletter. For more information visit: www.mtbeef.org .
To view the EA or to submit comments visit the NPS website.
