Default New Interior Secretary Zinke reverses last-minute Obama lead-ammunition ban

On his first full day in office, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke issued an order Thursday reversing a last-minute action by the Obama administration to ban lead ammunition and fish tackle used on national wildlife refuges.

Rep. Rob Bishop, R-Utah, chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee, said Zinke's order "represents an important check on executive abuse and reverses what was a deliberate attack on Americans' fundamental rights and privileges" by the Obama administration.

The order reverses a decision by the Obama administration to phase out use of lead ammunition and fishing tackle on wildlife refuges by 2022.

That's great, but why 2022? It certainly didn't take that long to implement if Obamarat instituted those regs.

Obama's directive was to phase out all lead ammunition and fishing tackle by the year 2022.

Zinke canceled the whole immediately.

Good call and just another indication that Trump and his administration will make "America Great Again".
