"Emanuel Blasts EPA, U.S. Steel on Pollution; Plans To To Sue Company"

"After announcing on Sunday the city’s intent to sue U.S. Steel for polluting Lake Michigan, Mayor Rahm Emanuel blasted the company and federal environmental regulators who’ve been “asleep at the switch” under the Trump administration.

“The job of the [Environmental Protection Agency], and let me be clear about this, is to police the polluters, not to protect them,” Emanuel said Sunday outside his City Hall office.

He pointed to two recent spills to highlight his point."
