- Full Report:
GAO reviewed the Department of the Interior's Fish and Wildlife Service's (FWS) new rule on the final frameworks for early-season migratory bird hunting regulations. GAO found that (1) the final rule establishes the early-season frameworks from which states, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin islands may select dates, limits, and other options available to them for the 2008-2009 migratory bird hunting seasons; and (2) FWS complied with the applicable requirements in promulgating the rule.
