Bladderpod decision delayed

The effective date of threatened status for two native plants growing near the Columbia River has been delayed another four weeks. The threatened status, as well as designation of critical habitat, for the White Bluffs bladderpod and Umtanum Desert buckwheat were scheduled to go into effect today, but the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service pushed it back until Dec. 20.
