Trump proposal to downlist humpback chub draws rebuke from enviros

A plan by the Trump administration to reclassify the humpback chub from "endangered" to "threatened" in the Colorado River has drawn concern from a conservation group that maintains the plight of the fish has gotten worse, not improved.

The fish, which is found only in Colorado, Utah and Arizona, faces severe threats from drought related to climate change and overuse of water, as well as from invasive species like smallmouth bass, says the Center for Biological Diversity.
