In April 2010, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) decided that listing the greater sage-grouse for protection under the Endangered Species Act was "warranted but precluded." The FWS is going to decide whether the greater sage-grouse should be listed in fiscal year (FY) 2015 based on the court-approved settlement agreement. The settlement agreement requires the Bureau of Land Management and Forest Service to include clear objectives and desired habitat conditions, management actions, and area-wide standards and guidelines in the land-use plans and amendments for each involved unit by the end of FY 2014.
