Reports say that 16 liberal state Attorneys General have banded together to sue President Donald Trump for stalling Barack Obama’s jobs killing, far left environmental rules. You know, just like he was elected to do.
Led by activist New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman, the group of 16 state AGs are saying that people with asthma are being negatively affected by the delay in the far left EPA rules, Breaking911.con reported.
New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman, leading a coalition of 16 state Attorneys General, today filed a lawsuit against the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Administrator Scott Pruitt for illegally stalling the designation of areas impacted by unhealthy levels of ground-level ozone (known as smog) – vital to protecting New Yorkers and other Americans from dangerous pollution.
According to the American Lung Association, over 115 million Americans – including 6.7 million, or one in three, New Yorkers – breathe harmful levels of ozone, which often travels far distances from other states with less stringent clean air regulations. The designations, which EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt recently delayed for one year, play a key role under the Clean Air Act in addressing smog’s serious threat to public health, triggering requirements for state-specific plans and deadlines to reduce pollution in the designated areas.
