Species bill would offer tax incentives to landowners

[Washington, DC] A bipartisan group of senators, including the Democratic chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, is proposing tax incentives for landowners who take steps to recover endangered species. The approach is a narrower alternative to a comprehensive overhaul of the Endangered Species Act, a priority for Republicans before Democrats took control of Congress. The bill would offer tax credits to landowners who protect endangered animal habitat and agree to an animal management plan. The bill would not amend the Endangered Species Act, but would attempt to provide landowners with incentives for compliance, Crapo said.
