14 STATES SUE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION OVER SMOG RULES
Fourteen states and the District of Columbia announced Thursday that they are suing the Trump administration over what they say is a failure to enforce smog standards. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has not designated any areas of the country as having unhealthy air, missing an Oct. 1 deadline, according to the lawsuit. Such areas must take steps to improve their air quality. Poor air quality particularly affects children and people with asthma, said California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who led the filing.
