More than a half-dozen environmental groups on Wednesday filed a lawsuit against the Trump’s administration for its perceived attempt to weaken the Endangered Species Act, as amended.

The landmark law, which protects hundreds of species of plants and animals, including the bald eagle, has been transferred with more than 45 years ago. Last week, the White House announced its plan to modify, among other things, the removal of what is referred to as the “blanket clause 4(d) rule.”
