ABC Response to Gingrich on Energy Industry Bird Kill
On September 11, 2011, American Bird Conservancy issued a press release entitled: "Oil Companies Prosecuted for Avian Deaths but Wind Companies Kill Birds With Impunity." On February 22, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich sent a letter to the Chairman of the House Committee on the Judiciary referencing this same issue. ABC has taken numerous press calls on this matter and would like to re-iterate its position on the issue of enforcement of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.
