Lawsuit, as promised
Fresh from Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's press office: Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger today announced his intention to file a lawsuit in the District of Columbia Court of Appeals to challenge the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) denial of California's tailpipe emissions waiver request. The lawsuit will be filed as soon as possible, which is expected to be within the next three weeks.
You can bet Attorney General Jerry Brown is sending out a similar press release.
The gov's canned quote: "We will sue to overturn this ruling as quickly as possible. I have no doubt that we will prevail because the law, science and the public's demand for leadership are on our side. Anything less than aggressive action is inexcusable."
