U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Acts Regarding Central Texas Species

On August 20, 2013, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (“USFWS”) published notice of its determination of endangered species status for the Austin blind salamander (Eurycea waterlooensis) and threatened species status for the Jollyville Plateau salamander (Eurycea tonkawae) pursuant to the Endangered Species Act (78 Fed. Reg. 51278), and its designation of critical habitat for these species in Travis and Williamson Counties, Texas (78 Fed. Reg. 51328). 

These rules will be effective on September 19, 2013.
