AMA News and Notes: April 2017

National and Regional News

WASHINGTON, D.C. - President Donald Trump signed a resolution in March allowing use of the Congressional Review Act to block the implementation of the U.S. Bureau of Land Management's Planning 2.0 rule. The rule, touted by environmental groups, was opposed by the AMA and by state and local governments because the rule reduced local input on management plans for public lands. It also failed to address the economic impact and administrative costs of the proposed changes. U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) introduced H.J.Res. 44 on Jan. 30. It passed the U.S. House of Representatives with a vote of 234 - 186 on Feb. 7. The Senate voted 51-48 in support of the resolution on March 7.

Don't "Rescue" Young Wildlife

SOCIAL CIRCLE, Ga. (3/28/2017) - Spring means it is time for many of Georgia’s wildlife to bear young.  Often, during this part of the year, people come in contact with seemingly “orphaned” young wildlife and want to help – but it is best to leave them where you find them, according to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division.

"When you take wildlife into your home, you often take away that animal’s ability to then survive in the wild, where they belong,” explains John Bowers, Wildlife Resources Division chief of game management.  “In most instances, there is an adult animal a short distance away – even though you may not be able to see them.  Adult animals, such as deer, spend most of the day away from their young to reduce the risk of a predator finding the young animal.”
