NEW YORK — A coalition of 13 attorneys general led by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman told the Trump administration it could expect a "vigorous" legal challenge to any attempt to weaken pollution standards for light-duty vehicles.

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection also signed a letter the state regulators sent to Scott Pruitt, the Environmental Protection Agency's administrator. The group said they would oppose any attempt to weaken emissions standards for the model years 2022 to 2025, the group announced.

In March, Trump promised to reopen a federal review of fuel economy standards that was concluded in the final days of the Obama administration. Automakers had asked Trump to reopen the mid-term review in February.

In their letter, the coalition said it strongly disagrees with Pruitt's contention that the mid-term evaluation process was flawed and provided a point-by-point rebuttal of the administrator's criticisms.

    These states need to know the men who build cars are voters. And if you fight the emissions the voters that build cars will pay you back by voting you out
