Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and 18 other state attorneys general sent a comment letter to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regarding their proposed rule on the regulation of hazardous air pollutants generated by coal and oil-fired power plants.

The letter urges the agency to reject or substantially modify the proposed rule.
