Arnold Serves Notice at EPA

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.


California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger officially notified the EPA today that he will sue in 6 months if the agency hasn’t granted California a waiver for stricter air quality standards by then. (Six-months’ notice is required by law.) The state first started trying to implement the standards in 2005, but officials had to wait for the ruling in this month’s Supreme Court decision, which debunked the EPA’s claim that it doesn’t have the authority to regulate emissions. You go, Manlie Man!

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
