FWS suspends proposal for refuge restrictions

FWS suspends proposal for refuge restrictions
(Mohave daily News, 6/17)

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will suspend its proposal to limit boating activities at Havasu National Wildlife Refuge, a decision hailed as a “victory for Lake Havasu” by Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar. Gosar had been one of the more vocal critics of the FWS’ draft recreational boating compatibility determination, which would have extended no-wake areas and restricted motorized boating and some other recreational activities in an area of the wildlife refuge. […] ‘This victory should put all overreaching federal agencies on notice: the American people are done with big government overreach,’ Gosar said. ‘We refuse to tolerate lawless, unelected bureaucrats imposing their own political agenda on our communities.’ […]The Fish and Wildlife Service has pledged to maintain an open line of communication with the public; the agency was criticized for not doing that prior to the release of the April 12 recommendations.
