New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut are suing the federal government over the GOP tax bill, specifically over the provision that added a $10,000 limit on state and local tax deductions. High-tax states often perceive this as an effective increase on their residents' tax burden.

Why it matters: This is the latest in a series of pitches many blue, high-tax states have been launching to try and bypass the new requirements.
