New Congressional Invasive Species Caucus Formed
Rep. Mike Thompson (D-CA) and Rep. Dan Benishek (R-MI) are co-chairing the newly formed bipartisan Congressional Invasive Species Caucus.
According to Rep. Thompson's website, the Caucus will serve to raise awareness about invasive species issues, support local communities who are bearing the brunt of this problem, and promote efforts to prevent and control the spread of invasive species. The Caucus will also provide opportunities for Members of Congress to meet with other policy makers, organizations and industry leaders that are working to prevent the spread of invasive species.
