        USFWS made clear that all 9 should be included. Sen. Cardin asked that USFWS contact Sen. Nelson and get his ok for the changes.

            a quote from the committee chairman (Cardin)

            "You are the ones doing the research and implementing programs on the ground to address these problems. You know what works and what does not work when it comes to stopping the loss of habitat and the spread of invasive species. I look forward to hearing your views on the bills we are examining here today."

                          if the testimony given by ashe and the lack of questions asked by the committee chairman were any indication (not to mention the utter lack of opposing testimony), it'll likely be amended to include the big 9, then be passed on to the floor for a full vote.

                          but we'll just have to wait and see.
