Washington, D.C. – House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-CA) released the following statement on the president’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate accord:

“Though flawed, the climate accord can be fixed.  To advance America’s interests, and grow our economy, we must remain a leader on the world stage.  Clean air and clean water should be our goal both here in the United States and in the developing world.  It’s now up to the administration to deliver a better deal.”
