Unanimous consent requests with only immediate effects are routinely granted, but ones affecting the floor schedule, the conditions of considering a bill or other business, or the rights of other senators, are normally not offered, or a floor leader will object to it, until all senators concerned have had an opportunity to inform the leaders that they find it acceptable.

Summary

Endangered Salmon Predation Prevention Act

This bill amends the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972 to authorize the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to issue permits allowing Washington, Oregon, Idaho, the Nez Perce Tribe, the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation, the Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs Reservation of Oregon, the Confederated Tribes and Bands of the Yakama Nation, and the Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission to kill sea lions in a portion of the Columbia River and certain tributaries in order to protect specified fish from sea lion predation. Permits may be issued to kill sea lions only if the sea lions are part of a population that is not categorized as depleted or strategic.

Sea lions may be removed in specified rivers by the Cowlitz Indian Tribe, the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde Community of Oregon, or the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians of Oregon pursuant to memoranda of understanding if NOAA approves.

The cumulative annual taking of sea lions each year under all such permits is limited to 10% of the annual potential biological removal level. In addition, the takings must be humane.

NOAA must suspend the issuance of the permits if, after five years, lethal removal authority is no longer necessary to protect fish from sea lion predation.
