14 STATES SUE TRUMP AD­MIN­IS­TRA­TION OVER SMOG RULES

Vancouver Sun - - NEWS -

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.
