The notice provides a draft interpretation and application of “significant portion of its range” that reflects a permissible reading of the law and its legislative history and minimizes undesirable policy outcomes, while fulfilling the conservation purposes of the Act.

The draft policy is open for public comment. A final policy that will be provided as a consistent standard for interpretation of the phrase and its role in listing determinations that will be accorded deference by the federal courts.
