“The most developable land between Phoenix and Tucson is its primary habitat.”

Sunday, August 3, 2008  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

The Tucson shovel-nosed snake gets more ink as the Phoenix-Tucson area readies for the arrival of the Endangered Species Act in all its many glories.

Memo to the various local governments: Do not begin multiple species conservation planning.

Memo to landowners: Unless you or someone else actually sees the snake on your land, your land is not occupied by the snake and the ESA would not apply even if the proposed listing succeeds. “Potentially occupied habitat” is a fiction invented to confuse local governments and blanket your land in delays not compelled by the statute.
