Center for Biological Diversity sues U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

In August 2018, the Trump administration reversed the ban on neonicotinoids and genetically modified plants imposed previously by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS).

FWS announced in July 2014 that it would discontinue the use of both neonicotinoids and genetically engineered crops in wildlife refuges by January 2016

The Center for Biological Diversity (CBD), a nonprofit environmental group, is suing FWS on two counts.

The first argues that the reversal of the ban has detrimental consequences for endangered species.

The second count is for failing to release public records that show how the reversal of the ban is impacting protected public lands across the country.
