Perry Responds to U.S. Withdraw from Paris Climate Agreement

Congressman Scott Perry offered the following statement in the wake of President Trump’s announcement to remove the U.S. from the Paris Climate Agreement:

“U.S. participation in the Paris Climate Agreement failed to follow constitutional protocols when it was undertaken by the Obama Administration. Treaties should be ratified by the Senate, as dictated in our Constitution. We all want clean air and a healthy environment. I’ve advocated for removing government barriers to the development of hydropower, which would create thousands of American jobs and provide power to millions of Americans at low cost. But decisions can’t be made unilaterally. Our removal from the Paris Climate Agreement is a solid first step to reasserting the role of the U.S. Constitution in international affairs and domestic policies.”
