NEW YORK – Attorney General Letitia James today released the following statement announcing she is leading a 17-member coalition in sending a 60-day notice of intent to sue the Trump Department of Energy (DOE) for ignoring its legal responsibility to update energy efficiency standards:   

“Updated energy efficiency standards for commercial and household products would provide tremendous benefits for the environment and for consumers’ wallets,” said Attorney General James. “The Trump Administration is demonstrating its continued disregard for public health and the wellbeing of our communities by refusing to update these standards. My office is committed to taking legal action to force the DOE to comply with the rule of law — enough is enough.”
