EPA Sued Over Inaction on Air Pollution Plans for 11 States
By Nicholas Iovino

The lawsuit names Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston-Galveston-Brazoria as two areas in Texas for which the EPA has failed to act on air quality improvement plans. Last year, an environmental group reported that “unauthorized” air pollution from Texas industries more than doubled from 2017 to 2018. The lawsuit also comes amid a historically low level of prosecutions for environmental crimes under the Trump administration, according to Justice Department data analyzed by Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse.
