**Attorneys generals from 25 states, including Florida, Georgia and Alabama, have sued the EPA to block rules to reduce emissions from cars and encourage electric vehicle manufacturing.

The group says the agency exceeded its authority and challenges the regulations for passenger vehicles, finalized March 20.

They claim the administration is willing to sacrifice the American auto industry and its workers in service of its radical green agenda.

**The USDA is funding more than 700 clean energy projects to help lower energy bills, expand domestic biofuels, create new jobs, and find new market opportunities for agriculture.

Deputy Secretary Xochitl (so-CHEEL) Torres Small announced more than $238 million in loans and grants available through the Rural Energy for America Program and the Higher Blends Infrastructure Incentive Program.

$194 million in loans and grants will be available to support projects in 35 states and Puerto Rico.

**The USDA has mandated testing for H5N1 of dairy cattle that cross state lines in a move to protect the U.S. livestock industry.

Before interstate movement, dairy cattle are required to receive a negative test for Influenza A virus at an approved National Animal Health Laboratory.

For interstate movement, owners of herds in which dairy cattle test positive will be required to provide epidemiological information, including animal movement tracing.
