California and 22 other states sued the Environmental Protection Agency on Friday, challenging President Trump’s decision to block the state from setting tougher tailpipe emissions standards.

Trump announced in September that he was revoking the waiver California has relied on for decades that require automakers to produce more environmentally friendly cars for the state and the more than dozen others that chose to adopt its tougher regulations.

“The Trump administration is trying to undo the progress we’ve made as a state and as a nation over the past decades. We can’t afford to do that. We cannot afford to backslide in our battle against climate change,” California Attorney General Xavier Becerra told reporters shortly after the suit was filed.

“California’s Clean Car Standards are achievable. They not only work, many other states around the country have chosen to adopt them. The Trump Administration, on the other hand, has chosen to side with polluters. We believe we’re on the right side of history,” he added.
