A Means to an End - Jim Beers

Snuck into the SAFETEA Act, S. 1072, are provisions that allow for government to control your land using an ill-defined Invasive Species policy. Specifically, sections 1501, 1505 and 1601 hand the Interior Dept. authority to decide which plants, animals, fish, birds and insects are "invasive," or of foreign origin to a particular land area, and are therefore threatening to those species regarded as native.
