NY, Other States Plan to Sue EPA

New York and six other states say they plan to sue the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency over methane emissions from oil and gas drilling.

Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says in a news release issued today that the EPA is violating the Clean Air Act by not addressing the emissions.

Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Vermont joined New York in sending a required 60-day notice to EPA.
