June 2, 2017
Press Release

Congressman Lamborn has issued the following statement:

"The President has every right to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement, and I applaud this decision which keeps the United States from being beholden to an international organization. The Paris Climate Agreement, which was never ratified by the Senate, is a non-binding agreement that has proven expensive to taxpayers without improving environmental practices.  I support the sovereignty of the United States on environmental issues, and I believe that we can chart our own course with an all-of-the above energy strategy that includes renewables for responsible energy development."

- Congressman Doug Lamborn (CO-05)
