Limit Designated Lands Gray Wolf Reintroduction


During the 2020 general election, the voters approved Proposition 114, which authorized the reintroduction of gray wolves on designated lands in Colorado west of the continental divide beginning no later than December 31, 2023. The bill excludes from the definition of "designated lands" the following: Lands within a county in which the majority of the votes cast in the 2020 general election did not approve Proposition 114 unless, prior to a proposed reintroduction of gray wolves in that county, an election is held in the county and a majority of the votes cast from that county in the election approve of the reintroduction of the gray wolf in designated lands in the county; and Lands within a county in which is located prey of the gray wolf that, as determined by the parks and wildlife commission, either: Is a candidate for listing or has been placed in the threatened or endangered species list pursuant to the federal "Endangered Species Act of 1973" or is listed as endangered or threatened pursuant to state law; or The state has spent money to reintroduce or restore.(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
