U.S. Rep. Diane Black is under fire for taking more than $200,000 in campaign donations from individuals affiliated with a trucking company and her efforts to maintain a loophole for diesel emissions testing, The Tennessean reports. Black was the subject of a New York Times story published today, which said the gubernatorial candidate was instrumental in continuing a loophole that allows rebuilt diesel engines to avoid modern emission requirements. The news prompted the filing of a complaint today with the state Bureau of Ethics and Campaign Finance.
