Document Number: 2021-02667
Type: Rule
Date: 2021-02-09
Agency: Fish and Wildlife Service, Department of the Interior
On January 7, 2021, we, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, published a final rule (``MBTA rule'') defining the scope of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA) as it applies to conduct resulting in the injury or death of migratory birds protected by the MBTA. We are delaying the MBTA rule's effective date until March 8, 2021, in conformity with the Congressional Review Act (CRA). We request public comments to inform our review of this final rule and to determine whether the further extension of the effective date is necessary.
