    This is great news! I attended the meeting in Cody addressing this issue and talked to a USFW person who told me he felt after bush left office, the habitat area would increase. It is disgraceful that something like this could be politicized! I wonder if the bush administration person who shrunk this habitat proposal to 10% of what was planned is still employed by the USFW. Thank you to Judge Molloy and keep on advocating for wildlife!
