John Freemuth, professor of public policy, was quoted in an Associated Press story about a conservation organization’s request for environmental reviews ahead of grazing permits in sage grouse territory. Freemuth noted that if a review notes a decline in sage grouse population, it could force the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to declare the species endangered.

Freemuth also was a member of the NWCCU team that just completed the seven-year accreditation review of Weber State University.
