Rep. Black Praises Decision to Step Away from Paris Climate Agreement

June 1, 2017
Press Release

Congressman Diane Black (R-TN-06), Chairman of the House Budget Committee, responded to the Trump Administration’s decision to step away from the Paris climate deal. Black released the following statement:

“I applaud President Trump's decisive action to reject the Paris climate change agreement, which was a bad deal for American families and businesses. Yet again, President Obama gave away the farm for a photo-op with Europe's most liberal leaders, signing a terrible agreement where most of the costs fell to the U.S. It's past time for an America-first energy policy to strengthen our security and grow our vibrant energy economy.”
