17 States Sue Over EPA’s Scrapped Car Emission Rules

The Associated Press reports:

California and 16 other U.S. states are suing the Trump administration over its plans to scrap standards for how much greenhouse gases vehicles can emit. California Gov. Jerry Brown and Attorney General Xavier Becerra [photo] announced the lawsuit Tuesday.

It takes aim at a plan by the Environmental Protection Agency to scrap standards for vehicles manufactured between 2022 and 2025. EPA administrator Scott Pruitt says the standards are not appropriate and need revision.
