Attorney General Frosh Joins Coalition of 15 Attorneys General in Filing Notice of Intent to Sue Trump

June 29th, 2017 by WCBC Radio

Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh today joined a coalition of 15 Attorneys General, the California Air Resources Board, and the City of Chicago to put the Trump Administration on notice that they plan to sue if the Administration continues to ignore its legal duty to control emissions of methane – an extremely potent greenhouse gas – from existing oil and gas operations.  In a letter to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt, the coalition provided the required notice of their intention to sue the agency for failing to fulfill its mandatory obligation under the Clean Air Act to control methane emissions from existing oil and natural gas sources and for “unreasonably delaying” the issuance of such controls.
