Texas Public Policy Foundation’s (TPPF) Bone Cave Harvestman lawsuit was the focus of “Special Report with Bret Baier” on Fox News. TPPF’s Center for the American Future is representing Williamson County resident John Yearwood and Williamson County, Texas in American Stewards of Liberty, et al. v. U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, et al. The lawsuit challenges the authority of the federal government to use the Interstate Commerce Clause to regulate non-commercial interactions with the Bone Cave Harvestman arachnid, which only exists in two central Texas counties, is not bought nor traded in interstate commerce, and does not otherwise affect interstate commerce.
“The Endangered Species Act grabs federal power beyond what the Constitution allows,” said Henneke. “The Center for the American Future’s lawsuit seeks to constrain the federal government to the limited, enumerated powers which the people granted. Camping isn’t commerce, and ESA regulation of the bone-cave harvestman and many other species violates the rule of law and should be found unconstitutional.”
