NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James today co-led a multistate coalition in filing a motion for a preliminary injunction in an ongoing lawsuit challenging the Trump Administration’s unlawful final rule redefining the “waters of the United States” under the Clean Water Act. The rule narrows the scope of the Clean Water Act, meaning many of our nations wetlands and streams would be stripped of protections. The coalition, which is suing over the rule, is asking the court to immediately halt its implementation while the case continues to prevent widespread harm to our nation’s waters.
