The EPA keeps breaking the law. So we keep fighting back.

Washington is among the 17 states that have filed suit against the EPA for rolling back fuel efficiency standards. The standards put in place in 2012 are widely regarded as a win for the environment, consumers, and the auto industry.

Just last year, the EPA determined that the standards were achievable.

Now, Trump's EPA is claiming that they "are not appropriate and should be revised."

So, why the sudden about-face from the EPA? Scott Pruitt and Donald Trump. They want to undo all of the progress President Obama made reducing carbon emissions.

The standards they want to roll back would save approximately 4 billion barrels of oil. Scott Pruitt and Donald Trump are sacrificing the health of our planet, our economy, and our national security to stay in the good graces of the lobbyists in the oil industry.

So, what are we going to do? See them in court. And so far, we've yet to lose a case against President Trump.
