Well then what exactly was the point of these changes if there is no impact like you stated.

It seemed you were responding to my post which was a response to another poster asking why processing collection permits in a timely manner would be a good thing.
So I guess I am confused.

1. to get non marine species classification in line with marine species classifications. Endangered and Threatened are two distinct classifications yet for non marine species Threatened has blanket coverage as if they were actually classified as Endangered.

2. To update historical range to present range. What is the purpose of using the habitat range of the yellow bellied speckled pecker 200 years ago to make determinations on its populations and classification when its habitat range in 2019 is not the same as it was in 1819?

These changes do not impact current endangered species.

I see two major changes proposed in that article not what you just stated.
