The Adirondack Council is signing on to a potential lawsuit against the Environmental Protection Agency over power plant regulations. The suit would be brought by the state of Maryland, which argues that the agency is putting people's lives and health at risk by not forcing power plants in the Midwest to turn on pollution control equipment. Air pollution from those plants travels through the Northeast, creating smog and acid rain. Maryland petitioned EPA administrator Scott Pruiti over the issue, but so far, no response. The Adirondack Council's Director of Communications, John Sheehan, discusses the next steps.
