NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James, leading a coalition of 30 states and local governments, filed a motion to intervene in an industry lawsuit in order to defend the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) authority to establish meaningful emission limits on greenhouse gases from power plants and other industrial sources. The intervention pushes back against industry assertions that the EPA has no authority under section 111(d) of the Clean Air Act to limit these emissions.
