PHOENIX, AZ (AP) In other news, a coalition of environmental groups including the Sierra Club, PETA and ELF have filed suit in federal court seeking
an injunction to require the removal of all asphalt and concrete from public and private lands.
"If we don't act quickly, it won't just be pelicans in Arizona, but thousands of species throughout the United States who are decimated each year
by roadways, sidewalks and other dangerous structures thoughtlessly built by humans. We must act, and we must act now," said Lisa Dyke, spokeswoman
for the Sierra Club.
A hearing has been scheduled for July 26 at the Sandra Day O'Connor U.S. Courthouse in Phoenix.
