New York Attorney General, White House Reach Agreement On Air Pollution Crackdown

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — New York Attorney General Letitia James has reached an agreement with the White House to crack down on air pollution that blows into the state.

The agreement will be sent to the U.S. District Court for final approval.
