indeMACThe U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) has notified U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) that it has suspended its draft proposal to limit recreational boating activities at Havasu National Wildlife Refuge near Lake Havasu in Mohave County, Arizona, following the conclusion of the formal public comment period that ended June 13.

The decision was made after months of protest by the local community, as well as legislative efforts by Senator McCain to block these harmful proposals for the regional economy.
