CT, NY and NJ to Sue Feds Over GOP's Tax Overhaul Plan

Connecticut, New Jersey and New York are planning to sue the federal government over the Republican-led federal tax overhaul. 

Democratic governors Andrew Cuomo, of New York, Dannel Malloy, of Connecticut and Phil Murphy, of New Jersey, announced during a conference call today that they will team up to take the Trump administration to court over the federal tax plan that's expected to cost taxpayers in their states billions of dollars. 

Malloy said he expects other states to join the lawsuit. There's no word on when it will be filed. 

Cuomo, a potential 2020 presidential candidate, says the tax overhaul enacted by Washington Republicans unfairly targets Democratic states. 

In New York, the changes will raise federal taxes for many homeowners by capping a state and local tax deduction at $10,000.
