State Plans to Challenge Bush Pollution Rules (Illinois)
SPRINGFIELD (AP)


Illinois officials are planning a legal challenge to President Bush's change in anti-pollution rules.

The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and the state attorney general said today they will file a petition to block the rule change.

State EPA Director Renee Cipriano says the new rules would threaten air quality.

A spokeswoman for Attorney General Lisa Madigan calls the rules "an all-out assault on public health."
