McMorris Rodgers Statement on Paris Climate Agreement

House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) released the following statement after President Trump announced the United States will be pulling out of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.

“We all want to protect our environment and ensure we leave a better community for the next generation. The problem with the Paris Agreement is how it was done — without the approval of the American people or their elected representatives through a ratified treaty. I agree with this decision and look forward to future conversations about how we can have a stronger environment and a stronger economy.”
