Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson announced Monday the state is leading the challenge to the Trump administration’s final rule that aims to reshape the Title X family planning network.

The plaintiffs will seek a preliminary injunction to block the rule once it is published on the Federal Register, since it is due to take effect 60 days after its posting. The draft final rule was published Friday by HHS’ Office of Population Affairs.

Other state attorney generals are expected to file additional challenges.
