Lincoln, Neb. Attorney General Jon Bruning said Friday that Nebraska will challenge a vehicle emissions policy adopted by the Environmental Protection Agency.

Nebraska is joining the state of Kansas, the Energy Future Coalition and the Urban Air Initiative in opposition.

Bruning called EPA’s policy “flawed science to burden Nebraska.” He said he would stand with Nebraska corn farmers and ethanol producers in opposing “this unlawful attack on our agricultural industry.”

The lawsuit is being filed in the Washington, D.C., Circuit Court of Appeals.
