Attorney General Maura Healey says U.S. EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt has illegally handed over decision-making to climate deniers and fossil-fuel lobbyists.
She's reacting to Pruitt's announcement the agency will rollback federal limits on greenhouse gas emissions from cars and light-duty trucks.
The AG says the rollback will leave the public with dirtier air and higher gasoline prices.
Last June, Healey and 13 other attorney generals threatened Pruitt with legal action if he moved forward with a roll back on federal emission limits.
