BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - Attorneys general from California and New Mexico are suing the Trump administration over its rollback of a rule aimed at reducing pollution from energy drilling on federal lands. The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court in California on Tuesday. It came just hours after the U.S. Interior Department announced it was rescinding a methane pollution rule proposed under President Barack Obama.

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A man accused of walking dangerously close to Old Faithful Geyser may also have broken the rules by sitting next to a different thermal feature in Yellowstone National Park. Video taken by Kelly Kosciuk, of Savannah, Georgia, and shared by ABC FOX Montana, appears to show the same man taking a shoe off next to Beryl Spring, one of Yellowstone's hottest springs.

HELENA, Mont. (AP) - U.S. Senate candidate Matt Rosendale's campaign says President Donald Trump's eldest son will campaign for the Montana Republican next week in Bozeman. Donald Trump Jr.'s return to Montana marks the president's continuing interest in what's shaping up to be a tight race between Rosendale and incumbent Democratic U.S. Sen. Jon Tester.

GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) - A Montana man who is serving a 100-year sentence for a homicide in Great Falls has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for brandishing a gun during a carjacking. The U.S. attorney's office says the federal sentence for 29-year-old Branden Miesmer of Great Falls will run consecutive to his state sentence for killing Cody Bruyere in 2015.
