Today, Montana Attorney General Tim Fox and attorneys general from 20 other states wrote to the acting U.S. EPA Administrator to urge him to resist creating new regulatory guidelines for greenhouse gas emissions in response to a litigation threat from seven states in the northeastern United States.

Attorney General Tim Fox announced today that Montana has joined with other states and the federal government in a $500 million dollar settlement to resolve civil and criminal allegations that Ranbaxy, a generic pharmaceutical manufacturer based in Gurgaon, India, introduced adulterated drugs into interstate commerce. As a result, false or fraudulent claims were submitted to Montana’s Medicaid Program.
