U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady (TX-08) released the following statement on President Trump's decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement:
"This withdrawal was inevitable the moment President Obama realized this extreme agreement could not gain approval even from his own Democratic Senate, so he went at it alone. This decision frees America to continue to reduce emissions and seek cleaner air on America's timetable using American technology and innovation without sacrificing affordable energy and middle class jobs. I commend President Trump for fulfilling his commitment to the American people. "
