Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congressman Lou Barletta (PA-11) today released the following statement in response to President Donald J. Trump’s announcement that the United States will withdraw from the Paris climate agreement:

“The Paris Accord, which President Obama signed without the consent of the American people's elected representatives in Congress, would have been disastrous for American workers, energy consumers, and our economy. I commend President Trump for withdrawing from this terrible deal and announcing his willingness to re-negotiate a better agreement that responsibly balances protecting our environment and family-sustaining jobs.”
