U.S. Representative Denny Rehberg (R-Mont.), a six-term congressman, recently announced he will run against Senator Jon Tester in the 2012 elections.
This winter, Rehberg is working on legislation to delist gray wolves from the
Endangered Species Act. Rehberg’s proposal is similar to a bill Tester and Senator
Baucus (R-Mont.) are pushing in the Senate.
“My legislation removes the federal government from the equation entirely and
allows management to be conducted by the states, where the stakeholders are,”
Rehberg serves on the powerful House Appropriations Committee, which has
budget jurisdiction of the 13 annual spending bills and controls one-third of the
federal government’s $2.5 trillion budget. He is has been vocal about his efforts
against Obama’s health care plan.
