Finding of No Significant Environmental Impact for the Biological Control of Emerald Ash Borer

http://www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=APHIS-2014-0094-0013

Summary:

The USDA is advising the public that the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service has prepared a final environmental assessment and finding of no significant impact relative to the release of a parasitic stingless wasp, Spathius galinae, into the continental United States for use as a biological control agent to reduce the severity of emerald ash borer infestations. Based on the finding of no significant impact, we determined that an environmental impact statement need not be prepared.
