News Profile of USFWS Decisionmaking Process in Question of Bald Eagles and Wind Turbines

Here.

An excerpt:

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) is considering eliminating most public oversight of wind turbine impacts on protected bald and golden eagles by offering developers 30-year permits to kill eagles by accident, as opposed to the current 5-year permits. What’s more, they’re shaping the implementation of that proposed policy change in a series of private “stakeholders’” meetings to which the public is not invited.
