Turning the tables on California, the Trump administration sued Thursday to block the state’s ambitious plan to reallocate billions of gallons of river water to salmon and other struggling fish species. The lawsuit by the U.S. Department of Interior injects the Trump administration into one of the biggest California water controversies in years — an issue where Gov. Gavin Newsom is attempting to forge a compromise between agriculture and the environment.
