AG Grewal Opposes Lame Duck Environmental Rollbacks in the Trump Administration’s Final Days

Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal announced today that the Trump Administration’s last-minute push to finalize dozens of rules and other actions that will harm the environment will not go unchecked.   In the waning days of the Trump Administration, Attorney General Grewal and other Attorneys General around the country have filed comments and lawsuits opposing more than a dozen “midnight rules.” More lawsuits are expected soon.   “EPA and other agencies of the Trump Administration have been engaged in a non-stop, reckless campaign to deregulate, with little or no regard for science, the law, or the health and safety of Americans – particularly those in our environmental justice communities,” New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy said. “This Administration has put our environment and the wellbeing of New Jersey residents at risk in pursuit of an agenda that seems founded on a commitment to invite more pollution and demand less accountability. We don’t expect them to quit until they have to, and we will be there until the last hour pushing back.”   Attorney General Grewal has led and joined dozens of actions to oppose Trump Administration environmental rollbacks since taking office in 2018, but the pace of the rollbacks has accelerated in the Administration’s final days.
