: House votes against endangered status for long-eared bat and prairie chicken, but Biden plans veto


The Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday voted 220-209 in favor of a measure that aims to take away the endangered species status that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has given to the northern long-eared bat, with the move coming after the Democratic-run Senate backed the measure in a 51-49 vote in May. The House also voted 221-206 for a measure that would roll back an endangered status for a southern population of the lesser prairie chicken, a type of grouse, following Senate approval for the measure in May.
