22 states sue Trump over repeal of Obama-era power plant rules

22 states sue Trump over repeal of Obama-era power plant rules | 13 Aug 2019 | A coalition of mostly Democratic-led states has filed a lawsuit against the Trump administration, arguing its rules for addressing power plant pollution are so weak they violate federal law.
