Democratic states promised Monday to sue the Trump administration for its move to “eviscerate” the Endangered Species Act by modifying how the federal government implements the law in a manner more accommodating to businesses.

The states are basing their lawsuit on three allegations, Healey said: the administration acted “arbitrarily” by not adequately considering science; that it failed to properly absorb public comment; and the changes violate the text and purpose of the statute to protect vulnerable species from extinction.

The article goes on to state the following:

The Trump administration is casting the changes as less far-reaching than Democrats and environmentalists claim, with the aim of making the law more efficient and less cumbersome.

Democratic Attorneys General Xavier Becerra of California and Maura Healey of Massachusetts have vowed to file a lawsuit in the next few weeks. They say “many” other states will join them.
