TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. The Biden administration is temporarily delaying stepped-up legal protections for two imperiled species following efforts by congressional Republicans to derail the actions.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said Wednesday it was postponing reclassification of the northern long-eared bat from threatened to the more severe endangered category until March 31. The change had been scheduled to take effect Jan. 30.

The administration said the delays were intended to give regulators and those affected by the changes such as landowners, loggers, ranchers and wind turbine operators time to adjust.
