New York sues U.S. agency, seeks air quality files
New York state has sued the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for failing to divulge information about the levels of toxins that paint manufacturers are allowed to release into the air.
State Attorney General Eliot Spitzer called the information critical to the state's ability to enforce environmental laws and announced on Wednesday he was suing Washington under the federal Freedom of Information Act and the Clean Air Act.
"After being denied access to records about volatile compounds for nearly two years, the state was left with no option but to sue the federal government for improperly withholding documents in violation of both laws," Spitzer's office said in a statement.
