14 States Sue Trump Administration over EPA Decision, Pennsylvania Included

The state of Pennsylvania is taking legal action against the Trump administration to protect residents from ozone and smog.

Governor Tom Wolf, along with Attorney General Josh Shapiro, announced a lawsuit was filed, challenging the Environmental Protection Agency's decision to delay implementing a rule to reduce levels of ground level ozone or smog.

 A study released from New York University showed the main pollutants in smog cause 728 early deaths in Pennsylvania every year.

"The Trump administration to delay the implementation of new ozone standards will have serious effects on our economy of our state, our health of our citizens and our children,"said Governor Wolf.

14 other states also joined Pennsylvania in this lawsuit.
