Gillibrand’s office, the bill allows the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service more latitude in regulating potentially invasive species, which both legislators said was important for protecting New York.“Whether it’s Asian Carp in our lakes or the Emerald Ash Borer in our forests, invasive species threaten our environment and our economy” Sen. Gillibrand was quoted as saying in the press release.“As the Co-Chair of the Bipartisan Invasive Species Caucus, I am pleased to join Senator Gillibrand in introducing this bicameral bill to protect our North Country environment,” Ms. Stefanik said in the release.
