The Justice Department announced Monday that it has filed a lawsuit against California over state laws giving it power to overrule sale of federal lands.
Democrats in California have been trying to undermine President Trump’s agenda. The newly announced lawsuit is not the first time Trump and California have battled.
In September a law was passed giving California the first right to purchase federal land or to arrange sales for specific buyers.
California lawmakers have stated that they are concerned the Trump Administration might allow more drilling, logging or other types of development.
