Susan Combs, in her official capacity as the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, today filed a motion to intervene in a lawsuit filed by Defenders of Wildlife and Center for Biological Diversity against the Secretary of the Interior and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Defenders of Wildlife v. Jewell, No. 13-cv-00919RC). This suit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, challenges the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s withdrawal of a proposal to include the Dunes Sagebrush Lizard on the endangered species list. At bottom, however, the lawsuit challenges the Texas Conservation Plan, which balances the interests of endangered species protection with protection of the Texas economy.
