Connecticut Attorney General William Tong, Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh, Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison, New York Attorney General Letitia James and Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul discussed their work defending their states’ policies to cut greenhouse gas emissions, as well as the public health and economic benefits of those policies. The AGs also explored how the federal government can and should affirmatively support state-level climate policies and programs.
