Suit al­leges fail­ure to en­force smog rules

The Dallas Morning News - - Nation & World -

SACRA­MENTO, Calif. — Four­teen states and the District of Columbia an­nounced Thurs­day that they will sue 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 the health of chil­dren, peo­ple with asthma and those who work out­side, said Cal­i­for­nia At­tor­ney Gen­eral Xavier Be­cerra, who led and an­nounced the fil­ing.
