from the Associated Press:
The Montana House has overwhelmingly endorsed a plan to disregard the federal law protecting endangered and threatened species.
Republicans enthused by Gov. Brian Schweitzer’s recent tough talk on wolves led a 61-39 vote Saturday to nullify the federal Endangered Species Act in Montana.
Schweitzer recently encouraged ranchers to shoot protected wolves harassing their livestock. But the governor says he doesn’t support nullification.
The bill faces one more usually procedural vote before it passes the House.
Actions speak louder than words.
